Selecting Parts for Additive Manufacturing

October 30, 2019

As metal additive manufacturing continues to expand as a viable production process, many companies are assessing the viability of producing parts with Selective Laser Melting. Join our application engineering team as we discuss what types of parts, features and geometries are best suited to be optimized for additive manufacturing and tips of what may makes the process unfeasible. Attendees will gain an overview of how to assess their components to take the first steps of implementing a metal additive manufacturing strategy.
