Additive Manufacturing: One of the Top Emerging Trends to Watch at IMTS
The demand for additive technology has grown as more and more shops are using it as a fast and cost-efficient way to produce tooling, build jigs, fixtures and other tools.
Additive manufacturing has become an increasingly popular application for several reasons. For one, it’s changing the way machinists look at some of the most complex part challenges, opening up new and lucrative business opportunities. But more concretely, it can offer serious cost advantages.
