Additive Manufacturing (AM) is no longer the way of the future.  It IS the future. It is a proven technology that is radically changing the way products are made from shoes to NASA rocket parts. After years of stagnating productivity, many manufacturers are utilizing this transformative technology for large-scale production to increase flexibility and speed production times, leading to real innovation.

3D printing of fiber-reinforced polymers is rapidly approaching a commercial tipping point. This is quickly becoming one of the most exciting and impactful areas of 3D printing; over the next decade the market will grow to $2 billion, the installed base and applications will expand, and technology will continue to mature. This growth will not be without challenges; there are barriers to adoption to be overcome in multiple sectors, supply chains & digital infrastructures to be established, and an inevitable consolidation in the number of manufacturers.

The reliability and performance of Xaar’s printheads are proving key for cutting edge jetting provider, Meta Additive, as they revolutionise additive manufacturing in volume metal and ceramic 3D printing (M3DP).
