Lightweighting With Additive Manufacturing

Flexibility, cost, and weight savings are key elements for most manufacturers. Lightweighting comprises all the methods and practices to make industrial parts and products (like vehicles) weigh less while retaining – or even enhancing – their technical and mechanical functionality. From saving on materials to substituting lighter weight materials to eliminating parts through smarter design (ask us about the drill shoe!), additive...
