Comparing the AM technologies

Additive Manufacturing offers a multitude of different manufacturing processes, which are not always comprehensible to the user at first glance due to their complexity.

In order to fully exploit the potential of these processes, it is essential to understand the technologies behind them and to master the associated upstream and downstream steps.

The “AM Field Guide”, published for the first time during Formnext 2018, it provides a practical guide for orientation in the field of additive manufacturing. In a visual and concise form, the most important additive technologies for polymers, metals and other materials are presented, as well as the additive production process from the development phase to the production phase up to the post-processing phase.

The main additive production categories present on the market are presented.

The guide also highlights how each technology has its advantages and the relative disadvantages, therefore none of them can satisfy 100% the needs of each individual user.

However, every technology represents a precious component and a possible combination of multiple technologies can certainly be a valid support in the manufacturing sector.

The AM Field Guide gives you this structured overview of the individual processes as well as the entire product development process. It also provides you with important questions that will help you to define the right technology for your production, depending on the application and material.
