Automation in additive metal manufacturing - In search of higher productivity

We've heard it many times before: Automation is part of the future of additive manufacturing. In the metal sector, too, manufacturers of AM hardware offer equipment and systems that are designed for automated production - in some cases there are even concepts for entire factory floors. So from a marketing point of view, many things are possible - but what does reality look like on the production floors? We have investigated this question and asked leading manufacturers and service providers.

Industrial 3D printing accelerates electric car industry

voxeljet 3D printing technology for production cast parts for electric-mobility. As key suppliers of the car industry, many foundries are under threat due to the current growth in e-mobility.

The reason is, that the demand for castings for an electrically powered vehicle is significantly lower than for a conventional combustion engine.
