Beyond the prototype: Opportunities for additive manufacturing in low-volume production
When 3D printing makes the mainstream news, it is usually to showcase highly conceptual products meant to push the limits of the technology. The perception is that the process is dedicated to creating prototypes—one-of-a-kind, often pricey models lacking in mechanical soundness and quality.
The reality of additive manufacturing is that it has game-changing potential for manufacturers who are focused on low-volume production, especially when speed or customization are key priorities.
So, should your businesses leverage the low-volume opportunities made possible by additive manufacturing?
This white paper from AMIC at Mohawk College will help you understand the use cases for when additive manufacturing makes sense for low-volume production- and when it doesn't.
What you’ll get in this free white paper:
- An overview of the advantages and disadvantages of additive manufacturing versus injection molding for low-volume production.
- The four key manufacturing considerations to consider before picking additive.
- Where to find additive expertise in Canada- and what to look for when picking a partner.
