Metal AM: Is Welding the Way In?

Optomec’s machine tool for metal 3D printing is also an accessible system for automated welding. The embrace of one use of this machine might lead to increasing exploration of the other.

Peter Zelinski
Editor-in-Chief, Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing as a means of making metal parts is a new possibility for many production facilities. Meanwhile, welding is a metalworking […]
