Looking to the future
Additive manufacturing (AM) is increasingly being utilised across
all sectors of manufacturing, notably in aerospace and
automotive with investments in the latest machines high on the
agenda, and the technology is bringing benefits to manufacturers
by helping reduce lead times and save on costs.
The global AM market is estimated to have been worth around
£11bn in 2019 and that is expected to triple in size over the next five years, and in
this issue, our cover feature (page 10) takes a look at a new metal AM machine
and process that has been developed by start-up Wayland Additive that will launch
to the market in March, bringing a new innovation to the additive world.
The Huddersfield-based company has developed its innovative machine Calibur3
from the ground-up, utilising its self-developed NeuBeam metal AM process, which
it says overcomes the stability issues many users of traditional eBeam AM systems
experience, combining the best features of AM technologies and in turn conquers
their traditional limitations.
Automation is another hot topic and investments in this area are high on the
priority list for many businesses, and in this issue, we hear from Mills CNC (page
14) about how it has invested in a new Turnkey and Automation Centre to meet the
needs and demands of the market.
The new centre provides the Leamington-based machine tools company with both
an area to demonstrate its latest industrial and collaborative robot automation
systems and solutions to customers, along with a focal point for the growing
turnkey and process improvement business which, over the last few years, has
grown significantly and it sees as key to its future success.
Last year, was challenging for most businesses due to the impact of the Covid-
19 pandemic, and in this issue, we also hear from key machine tools industry
player the Ceratizit Group (page 18), on how it used 2020 to reposition the
company and lay the foundations for a successful future.
The UK is a key market for the company and we hear about the new Technical
Centre that it is building, next to the University of Sheffield’s Advanced
Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).
Also featuring in this issue is our special Aerospace Focus (page 37), which
looks what is in store for the aerospace sector in 2021 after a difficult period, while
additive manufacturing also features, as despite it being a tough time for
aerospace, the technology is a beacon of positivity for major industry manufacturers
like Airbus, Boeing and Marshall Aerospace. ■
