|Materials Forming and Molding Technologies IV
The downturn of economies across the globe over the last few years has left many firms and industries rethinking their strategies and retooling their approaches, especially as regards the improvement of manufacturing and production facilities. They have to select the best flexible manufacturing process that allows them to produce low cost parts, with less energy and fewer raw materials, in reduced cycle time, while improving their design and their quality. In this context, Injection Molding and Additive Manufacturing processes offer very interesting solutions for several applications, particularly those involving products with complex and small size parts. In this News Letters, we will in particular focus on the latest developments in Metal Injection Molding and Metal Additive Manufacturing.
