Special Vernier Society Event – The Truth about Metals Additive Manufacturing

Metals Additive Manufacturing is one of the most hyped innovations in the manufacturing world today. If we are to believe all the rhetoric, then soon every component will be produced as required on an army of flexible machines. But the truth is somewhat different.   ‘Plastic’ additive is now quite commercialised since its invention in the 1980’s but metal additive is still an emerging technology albeit with great potential.
