Additive manufacturing uses machines to create three-dimensional physical objects from digital data. These systems primarily manufacture using layer-by-layer (or additive) means of construction. This permits the manufacture of complex shapes and surfaces much more simply than by conventional methods.
KTN’s Additive Manufacturing community is made up of SMEs creating innovative solutions through AM technologies together with supply chain organisations, materials specialists, digital businesses and designers.
Additive manufacturing is one of the key areas of digital innovation within the Manufacturing Made Smarter national programme, creating innovation for the UK manufacturing sector to build their resilience and flexibility, improve productivity and become environmentally sustainable.
