From customised hip replacements to new materials, technology in additive manufacturing is opening up a range of possibilities. While the advances are developing a new breed of products, they also demonstrate a transformation in the business models and structure of the manufacturing sector. Some of ways manufacturing is being changed include:
- Materials and the way they can be used,
- 3D printing is changing many of the ways products are designed, manufactured and brought to market,
- More intelligent, more collaborative robots are changing the manufacturing process.
- Where products are manufactured.
