Modulation matters - how to build all features great and small
Additive manufacturing (AM) gives us the freedom to build a vast range of part geometries, consolidating multiple conventional parts into a complex whole. Multi-functional AM parts often combine the structural with the intricate, mixing relatively bulky geometries with fine details. Building such parts cost-effectively means that our AM process must be both productive and precise.
The feature article details how versatile laser modulation can help to match the mode of energy delivery to the needs of component features of all sizes.
