3D Additive Manufacturing Drives Industries Forward

Metal 3D printing is shaping the future of manufacturing—and 3D Systems is driving the technology forward with innovative printers and software. As the cost of this new form of additive manufacturing decreases, it is becoming increasingly accessible and being embraced by more manufacturers. Metal 3D printing offers key benefits, including accelerating design iterations and the production cycle and dramatically reducing part weight.

These advantages have made metal 3D printing a staple in industries like aerospace, which has strict specifications about material requirements, technical features, and safety measures. Metal 3D printing has proven to be one of the most reliable, effective forms of manufacturing to fulfill these needs. But the benefits of this technology aren't limited to the aerospace industry—metal additive manufacturing has applications in nearly every industry, and it is rapidly being adopted into design and production cycles.

Metal 3D printing is commonly used for prototyping, but, as demonstrated by its aerospace applications, it offers countless possibilities for end-use production as well. 3D Systems offers a full system package for metal 3D technology, including software, materials, and printers. With our extensive expertise in this space, we help companies access and get the most out of high-quality, efficient metal 3D printing, from prototyping to production.
