AM video series: One word to sum up the future of AM

How do you sum up the future of an industry? Is it on the rise? Is it showing enormous potential in numerous different sectors? For additive manufacturing, the answer is definitely ‘yes’ to each of these questions and there is a great deal of excitement and positivity from everyone operating in this space at the moment.

Hexagon’s stand at Formnext presented a great chance to build on this excitement and introduce our end-to-end solutions for additive manufacturing to the industry, as well as launching the ‘I AM’ campaign for Industrialising Additive Manufacturing.

At the event in Germany in November 2021, the Hexagon stand hosted many great discussions about the future direction of this rapidly developing industry – but is it possible to sum up what lies ahead for additive manufacturing in a single word? Check out the video above to see how industry experts including Yann Rageul of Stratasys, Dr Thorsten Löwer of pro-beam, and Ted Plummer of Markforged approached this question.

We have also published a new whitepaper which provides a clear snapshot of where AM is right now and where it can be taken next with the introduction of smart manufacturing technology. Download it here and discover how Hexagon’s solutions can transform the industry and your manufacturing.
