Presentation Summary

The Ricoh presentation will look at the complexity of adoption for Additive Manufacturing within an Industrial context. With no dominant technology due to demands for different materials which in themselves are growing in scale and diversity how is a Production Team to choose the correct machine? With such a range of processes can only one method be selected or should there be a mix of in-house production supplemented by Fabrication Bureau Services. This presentation looks at how Ricoh is approaching the market to provide answers in Prototype Services and small batch functional parts Production to help assist the opportunity for adoption by end users.
