Business case and adoption of additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing techniques open up a world of new options, but are generally expensive. This is why it is important to start with a business case to analyse the benefits in comparison to the costs. Furthermore, manufacturing directly from digital data involves legal hurdles and gaining approval for processes in regulated markets such as medical technology or aviation is a huge challenge. Find out in this focus topic how to develop a successful business case and deal with legal issues.

Keynote: Spritzguss oder Additive Fertigung?

13:35 - 13:55, Innovation Symposium

Focus topic: Business case and adoption of additive manufacturing
Application: Equipment manufacturing

Speaker

Spritzguss oder Additive Fertigung?
Entscheidungsgrundlagen

Sowohl die Additive Fertigung wie auch die Spritzgusstechnologie haben ihren unbestrittenen Einsatzbereich. Wenn bei komplexen Geometrien und kleineren Serien alles für die Additive Fertigung spricht, muss bei grossen Stückzahlen und einfacheren Geometrien spritzgegossen werden. Wie sieht es aber im Grenzbereich bei Stückzahlen von z.B. 1'000 bis 5'000 Teilen aus?

Im beschriebenen Referat finden Sie Überlegungen, welche sich Firmen zu diesem Spannungsfeld gemacht und weshalb sie sich für die Additive Fertigung entschieden haben.
