Additive Manufacturing refers to a process by which digital 3D design data is used to build up a component in layers by depositing material. The term "3D printing" is increasingly used as a synonym for Additive Manufacturing.
With additive manufacturing and net shape manufacturing revolutionising the way components are produced, Sandwell has been working with companies to improve internal and external surface finish. This can reduce the reliance on post process machining.
