Additive manufacturing is creating new opportunities for fiber-reinforced polymer composite materials. This has implications for the promise of AM and implications for the composites industry. In this episode, Peter Zelinski of Additive Manufacturing Media is joined by Jeff Sloan of sister brand CompositesWorld. They talk about composites replacing metal, large-format 3D printing for tooling, and other aspects of the overlap between these two worlds. Also, what does the acceptance and adoption of composites into part production, and the way this played out in previous decades, signal about the way ahead for an even newer disruptive technology, additive manufacturing?
