Closing thoughts on RAPID + TCT 2023. What can help an Industry evolve? (from the Latin e-volvo, ‘I roll forth’).
Some answers collected on the shop floor:
- Close connection between End Users and supply chain players (a trait of the Additive Manufacturing ecosystem);
- Trade Shows and Associations that help the cause (we’re witnessing proliferation of both – many say it’s excessive);
- Consolidations (brutal but true);
- Players who deliver consistency and players who push the technology limits.
With regards to the latter, we at VALIMET, Inc. salute EOS‘ absolutely non-obvious achievement: this tiny book is entirely 3D printed. Foils detached from one another are held together like in any hand-made book.
May this collection of white papers symbolize that the future of AM is still to be written.
