Neutron Beams Help To Advance The 3D Printing Industry

3D printing is most widely known for its ability to make bobble heads and plastic trinkets, but it is a practical way to produce unique or specialized parts. As an example, 3D printers allow airplane and car parts to be made without a machine shop or having to tool up an entire factory. This makes the cost of producing small batches or even a single part much more affordable.

Additive manufacturing (AM) represents an emerging, major commercial industry. AM is already generating over $6 billion in annual revenue. The 3D printing industry is currently enjoying double-digit growth and is expected to continue this growth well into the future.

To help AM mature, researchers are addressing technical challenges involved in producing parts with precise specifications.
