This new publication, our seventh AM Focus eBook edition, delves into a theme that spans the additive manufacturing industry (and manufacturing on the whole) and is at the core of the technology’s industrialization: Automation.
Automation is a necessary step in additive manufacturing’s journey towards industrialization, and plays a significant role in all “Factory of the Future” visions. This eBook concretizes the concept of automation by looking at how it comes into play at each step of the AM process chain. From optimized design tools, to digital warehousing, to material handling, to printing, to post-processing and to workflow management, automation—through simulation tools, process management, AI-driven software and robotics—is what will move this industry ahead.
This eBook presents a comprehensive analysis of the market for automated AM factories, exclusive interviews with automation-driven Ai Build, post-processing leader DyeMansion, AM-Flow, Siemens and Schubert. The publication also includes a roundup of the industry’s Factory of the Future visions and more. The only way we could have fit more automation into this eBook is if a robot had written it!
