The connected and automated factory of the future is changing our vision of manufacturing. There is an opportunity for greater collaboration between humans and robots that is made possible by advancements in technology. Not only can this increase the quality of output and productivity on factory floors, but it also relinquishes workers from monotonous and often dangerous work.
The next generation of aerospace technology demands next-generation production techniques and additive manufacturing is chief among them. Aerospace manufacturing and 3D printing naturally go hand-in-hand and with additive manufacturing, the complexity comes for free and the materials are extruded or fused, rather than having to be machined away.
