Pilot Project on Technology Readiness of Additive Manufacturing in Maritime and Oil & Gas Industry Sectors

Problem Statement

Many M&O industry players are very interested to take advantage of AM’s promising capabilities; however, they have also expressed lack of confidence in using AM parts in place of the final products produced by traditional subtractive machining.

Objective
