Discussing the news that Nikon has offered to Buy SLM Solutions. What does this mean for the market? What are the current market dynamics in Additive Manufacturing, specifically in Powder Bed Fusion? What is the powder bed fusion market like today? Where is the powder bed fusion market going? Hypersonics, commercial space, defense and orthopedics are driving growth in the industry.
