Additive Manufacturing Automation

The rapidly evolving market for additive manufacturing automation (AMA) is a key segment for 3D printing related hardware manufacturers and 3D printing adopters. Thus, both need to take into consideration the integration of 3D printers within fully automated production cells.

Industrial 3D printers are no longer just stand-alone systems, used mostly for prototyping, tooling and single part production. Today they are becoming the core systems within integrated digital mass production lines. As a result, a number of opportunities will emerge in the transformation of the factory of tomorrow.

A Huge Opportunity

Over the past two years, 3D printing began to shift from prototyping and small batches to a mass customization production technology. Thus all major industrial and non-industrial 3D printer makers started integrating their systems.

Additive manufacturing automation takes place both within 3D printer networks (or “farms”) and within automated production lines. Over the next ten years, the majority of industrial 3D printers will be production-ready and will integrate native or add-on automation capabilities.

Those who build the infrastructure for the digital, additive, automated factory of tomorrow will be at the forefront of the ongoing industrial revolution.
