Metal Additive Manufacturing Methods

The diagram below was recently published in Material TodaysMetal Powder Report. Its a useful visual snapshot of the quickly-evolving metal additive manufacturing industry and, specifically, the major machine manufacturers within it.

Using theSenvol databaseas a primary source, the diagram divides the myriad metal additive manufacturing methods (and acronyms!) on the market into four main categories:Powder Bed Fusion, Directed Energy Deposition(EBAM®, for example, falls under this category),Binder Jetting,andSheet Lamination. You can read our article that describes some of the differences between these methods–specifically wire vs. powder–byclicking here.

Beyond this, the diagram only includes metal 3D printing companies that are listed as machine manufacturers in Senvol as of December 2015. This is a crucial distinction in a market that is saturated with misleading marketing and PR:too many companies in this space claim to produce systems that are available for purchase, but have never sold a single unit.This sheds light on the actual, commercially available metal 3D printing technologies:
