Cleverly combined

The combination of additive and subtractive technologies is an AM pathway at Procter & Gamble – the resulting sustainability effects are a topic at Rapid.Tech 3D

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a key technology for US consumer products group Procter & Gamble (P&G). “We already use 3D printing in component manufacturing and maintenance, as well as for customising products. But we still see huge potential for future applications,” says Klaus Eimann. In a keynote address at Rapid.Tech 3D on 18 May 2022, the Technical Director of Product and Packaging Innovation at P&G Germany will focus in particular on the sustainability aspects of AM technologies for producing and modifying machine and tool components.

3D printing takes off

Airbus Helicopters at Rapid.Tech 3D: The challenges of developing a cost-effective additive-manufacturing process

The aerospace industry is one of the pioneering sectors that have brought additive manufacturing (AM) out of the experimental stage and into industrialised production. Because the lighter aircraft and helicopters are, the greater the reduction in fuel consumption and emissions. However, the advantages that can be exploited with AM in terms of lightweight construction and geometry are accompanied by numerous challenges in industrialising 3D printing.
