Highly complex and ‘organic’ geometries. Lower costs and delivery times for small production runs. One-off bespoke components. These are some drivers for the current interest in Additive Manufacturing (AM). But the performance of AM materials differs from that of conventional manufacturing route and is highly-dependent on the detail of processing conditions and the machines used. This all complicates the decision of whether to switch to AM.

In this on-demand webinar you’ll see how using the Senvol Database™ (the first and most comprehensive database on additive machines and materials) and the visualization and comparison tools in the upcoming release of CES Selector 2019, lets you compare the performance of the latest additive materials and machines with materials produced by conventional technology. Quickly identify which grades and machines are appropriate, and whether AM technology is a viable option for your component.
