Resource efficient manufacturing through the optimisation of manufacturing and heating technologies

12:00  -  12:25

If the right material should be in the right place, then the right manufacturing technology should be used to achieve target shape. Therefore Resource efficient manufacturing is based on three fundamental pillars: selection of the appropriate material, understanding of the part design features, development/assessment of the suitable manufacturing technology, which need to be supported by the risk and cost assessment. […]
