Hybrid Manufacturing: Technology Roadmapping and Opportunities Report, 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 4, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--The “Hybrid Manufacturing: Technology Roadmapping and Opportunities” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Rapid proliferation of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology in the industrial arena has attracted manufacturers and consumers to adopt the technology widely. Also awareness of the technology has led to the innovative option of merging additive and subtractive additive manufacturing techniques.

The hybrid manufacturing technique or system often comprises direct energy deposition, powder bed fusion and milling techniques.

Addition of milling option to additive manufacturing provides high quality products with improved surface finish, thus resulting in improvised solutions for design engineers. The technical attributes of hybrid manufacturing overhaul existing conventional techniques and have created footprint in sectors such as oil and gas, aerospace, and automotive.

Business models are also evolving toward leasing of machinery, providing hybrid systems as a service in the manufacturing arena. This will increase the bandwidth of industries that the hybrid manufacturing systems service.

Aerospace is one of the major industries impacted by the introduction of hybrid 3D printers. The technology is expected to improve tolerances, geometrics, and surface areas. 3D printing itself can enable production of lightweight components. 3D printed metal parts can reduce the weight of an airplane by about 7%.

The technology and innovation report assesses opportunities for hybrid manufacturing systems, and provides insights on technology development scenario for the near-, medium-, and long-term. Growth opportunities for hybrid systems in different applications are also assessed.
