Advisory on Additive Manufacturing

Year: 2017
Language: english
Author: ABS
Genre: Guide
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 36
Description: The latest innovation in manufacturing, additive manufacturing (AM), is the fabrication of a
part by adding material layer by layer. AM technologies can reshape the way parts are designed
and constructed. The rapid development of this technology has indicated that the marine and
offshore industries may benefit from the capability of AM to produce new or replacement parts.
This advisory provides an overview of metal AM technologies, technical challenges and tradeoffs,
changes to the design process, quality, reliability and the role of ABS.
Additive manufacturing is also known as 3-D printing and offers the ability to produce a low
number of complex parts locally, quickly and economically, relative to traditional manufacturing.
AM technologies enable design features that are too expensive or impractical using traditional
manufacturing techniques such as casting or forging.
