Additive manufacturing has long proven its enormous potential in recent times. Annual growth rates in today’s still small market are over 30 percent, even considerably higher in part where metallic components are concerned. According to the latest forecasts, additive manufacturing is expected to grow by 20 to 50 percent by the year 2020. In other words, the market will grow by a factor of 2 to 4. It is therefore only logical that as a technology leader DMG MORI will consistently advance in this area. DMG MORI has already been operating successfully on the market for ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING since 2013 with directed energy deposition using powder nozzle technology. With its deposition-to-finishing competence, DMG MORI presents the most important generative machining processes under one roof and ranks as a full-solution provider in both the additive production of metallic components and metal cutting.
Future-oriented and highly competitive markets are always on the lookout for innovative and cost-effective production opportunities. They are therefore often seen as the drivers of new technologies. So it is not surprising that additive manufacturing is gradually being adopted in all markets. The USA, Europe, Korea and Japan in particular have become established here as core markets. Aircraft manufacturers see great potential in the chance to reduce the weight of components. Additive manufacturing is already wide spread in medical technology production and dental laboratories, because it offers economical solutions for many different applications, even for batch size 1.
