SmarTech Analysis has released the latest edition of its report on bound metal 3D printing. Dubbed “Bound Metal & Metal Binder Jetting AM 2022,” the report projects that metal binder jetting and bound metal extrusion technologies will produce $54 billion in parts through 2030.
A new milestone in concrete 3D printing, Sennheiser starts mass-producing 3D printed headphone housings, and Ford uses 3D scanning and 3D printing to restore Detroit’s historic train station; these stories and more this week in additive manufacturing news.
3-D printing is no longer a new or innovative technology for the largest manufacturers in aerospace who have been creating solid objects from digital files for more than a decade.
Eric Gatlin wants to make additive manufacturing mundane. That may sound strange for someone who spearheads GE Aviation’s adoption of one of the most potentially transformative technologies in the production of aircraft parts.
