Inkjet: The key to high volume Additive Manufacturing
April 8, 2014
On April 8th 2014, Prof. Hopkinson had the distinction of giving the opening keynote talk at InPrint 2014: The Industrial Print Show at Hannover Messe. Prof. Hopkinson’s talk titled “Inkjet: The key to high volume Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)” covered broad global industrial drivers for growth and placed the role of high volume Additive Manufacturing in this context. Particular attention was drawn to previous success in the ceramic tile printing industry where (Factum partner) Xaar’s print heads have enabled a transformation of an entire industry sector to digital technology, using this success as a template for likely future growth of Additive Manufacturing.
