Since its early beginnings in rapid prototyping, curiosity about additive manufacturing has skyrocketed in every single industry segment – and the 3D printing boom continues. No wonder: Additive manufacturing (AM) opens completely new possibilities.
AM revolutionizes the way we think about manufacturing: New geometric forms, increased complexities and new material combinations are possible
AM enables quick and cost effective processes, as no tooling is required. This leads not only to cost effectiveness but also to a shortened time to market
AM is unlocking completely new possibilities which could not be realized before: Several production steps can be merged into one, mass customization is enabled.
Beneficial part characteristics, such as weight reductions and complex geometries can be realized.
Throughout the last decades H.C. Starck has been developing this first interest into a manifested tradition of innovation and research within the company to exploit the full potential and power of AM.
