EU project InShaPe – Next innovation leap in metal-based additive manufacturing
In many industrial sectors the demand for special metal components that are light and have a high strength is increasing. An important manufacturing process for this is the powder-bed fusion process of metals using laser beam (PBF-LB/M). Depending on the application, the process is not yet always competitive compared with conventional production in terms of unit costs.
