3D Printing Titanium Market Gets Boost from RTI International Metals Investment in Norsk Titanium

If you have been around the 3D printing industry much then you probably already know about Direct Metal Deposition (DMD) technology. This process melts wire and then directly deposits the metal to a substrate, building up a layered component that has little need for machining. Compared with the traditional milling methods, this method saves material, makes production more flexible, reduces […]
