3D metal printing opens design opportunities in the military and defense manufacturing industry
In military applications, the ADDere 3D metal additive system can offer advantages over current manufacturing processes. With more and more exotic metals being used for armor plating, structural components and high-temperature applications, the need for flexibility in designing these components increases as well.
Having the opportunity to build components with wire feed metal deposition allows even more shape possibilities that simply aren’t available with conventional fabricating processes alone. This allows military vehicle engineers to move past plate-on-plate design thinking without having to resort to expensive shorter-run castings.
The ADDere metal 3D printing system can also move component testing from concept to production-ready much faster, allowing quicker iteration times, regardless of whether the components are desired in a variant of Inconel, titanium or stainless steel.
