Additive manufacturing is an engineering technology pertaining to the field of manufacturing, which minimises the time of production significantly and results in greater rate of production; it is considered as one of the most efficient, economical, accurate, and qualitative ways. One of the most important attributes of this technology is the features that it enables in the flexibility of the design, free of geometrical complexity, which overcomes most of the shortcomings in the existing conventional methods.
This book gives an introduction and insights of all the important processes, applications, and design challenges faced by industries today.
Designed with the best diagrams which depict the idea of technology at a glance
Encompasses a wide range of the basics of conventional manufacturing processes
Designed with numerous practical examples which can make people apprehend the concept easily
Introduces the latest and eye-catching processes which are sought after in the present day industry (viz., 3D-printing, LENS, Rapid Freeze Prototyping, Ultrasonic Consolidation, Selective Laser Melting, and Direct Metal Deposition).
