Additive manufacturing offers a lot of advantages compared to traditional production technologies. For example, you are able to design more complex products, you need less material, you can make lighter products and gain more product performance and functionalities. 3D printing is extremely suitable for customized products. You can easily print low volumes of a product and are therefore able to make a cost-efficient and customized offer (low volume, high complexity). In addition, significant progress is being made regarding printed electronics. A technology that enables circuits, sensors, memories, batteries and displays to be printed on thin, lightweight and flexible materials. Offering new opportunities for the packaging and automotive industry and for companies producing wearable electronics.
OEM's can shorten their supply chain, because function integration can reduce the amount of parts that are needed. Suppliers can distinct themself from the competition by offering additive manufacturing knowledge and facilities. As a result they can be more involved in the design phase of their customer. Customers and suppliers can optimize product development and increase time to market, all because of 3D printing.
