3dpbm AM Sustainability Focus 2022 eBook » 3D Printing Media Network
Sustainability is no longer a “trendy topic”, it is an urgent goal that industries around the world must commit to. In manufacturing, additive manufacturing already has a head start as many aspects of the technology support sustainability goals. For example, lighter and more efficient part design can be achieved through the design freedom of technology, and there is great potential for on-demand and localized production. But there is also more to the story.
In this eBook, we take a closer look at the sustainability that AM enables, largely through applications in various industries and hardware innovation. But we also want to address areas where the industry needs to improve, such as making AM processes themselves more energy efficient and implementing more circular economies for materials. The publication begins with an analysis of the ways in which sustainability is pursued with AM in various sectors, including aerospace, energy and consumer goods. We also have exclusive interviews with materialize, CarbonTexas A&M and Automobili Estrema, as well as a dive into the emerging role of AM in nuclear fusion research and a report on sustainable plastics.
