Key questions businesses need to answer to understand if AM is right for them.


KTN’s Additive Manufacturing Special Interest Group (AM SIG) together with British Standards Institution, FDM Digital solutions, Croft Additive and Innovate UK have produced a guide to AM to support SMEs in gaining an understanding of AM processes to assess whether it is the right choice based on their requirements.

The guidance outlines the key questions businesses need to answer to help feed into their design, material selection, production run and to identify opportunities that add value (e.g. improved performance, lightweighting, and supply chain value) that are critical for AM to deliver benefits to the business.
