The Importance of Developing More Metal Alloys for Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing (AM) is increasingly important across a range of industries. Compared to traditional manufacturing, AM is faster and more flexible; it also offers greater design freedom for complex geometries. The technology is poised to cut costs and streamline production environments. First, however, engineers and researchers must overcome common 3D printer limitations and develop…
