Weight Reduction

Additive with a purpose: Weight Reduction

A significant advantage to additive manufactured components or assemblies is ultimate weight reduction. Where fuel efficiency and fuel economy are both a performance and an economic advantage, additive manufacturing is the ultimate solution.

As opposed to subtractive manufacturing —where unnecessary material is removed from a larger block— when components are produced with additive technology, only the necessary material is used to produce the same part performance. Coupled with DRTís FEA software capabilities, perfectly uniform stress levels can be designed into the part —providing the maximum weight reduction, or minimum component weight, without sacrificing any strength.
