Additive Manufacturing is offering innovation that our customers are looking for (reduce weight, reduce costs, add new functionalities), It is now possible to manufacture components made from polymers, metals and even ceramics with good physical and mechanical properties, Additive Manufacturing should enable Thales to provide more competitive products with higher performance in a challenging environment, 3D printing technology is still in the early stages for industrial application (aeronautic, space, defense), Supply chain in Europe is emerging for metallic functional parts, A robust & coherent supply chain has to be consolidated before to consider serial production (e. g. > 100 part/year), Conclusion – Take away Additive Manufacturing is considered in Thales as a key technology for the near future
