The entry into the additive manufacturing (AM) of serial and end customer parts is a challenge for many companies: standards, dimensioning bases, design methods, technical-economic calculation bases, CAD tools and experience for the development of additive serial and end customer parts still not exist for the most part or are not established. Industrial enterprises that have the goal to develop additively manufactured end customer parts are quickly faced with similar questions. With practice-oriented methods and examples, the book addresses these questions: Which AM methods are available and which are suitable for industrial end-user components? (Section 2) How can AM processes be combined with conventional production? (Section 3) What is the digital process chain? (Section 4) What is the quality of AM components and how can they be tested? (Section 5) What is the cost structure of AM components? (Section 6) What are established application fields for AM? (Section 7) How can potential-free components and application fields of the AM be identified? (Section 8) How are components designed for AM optimally? (Section 9) What are examples of successfully implemented AM end-user components? (Section 10) What are the steps by which AM can successfully be implemented in the company? (Section 11) The book is a basic work for the industrial development and construction of additively manufactured series and end customer parts, by providing practical methods and knowledge, which support a successful implementation of additive processes in companies. In addition to new methods and procedures, the book demonstrates the possibilities of implementation by means of a large number of successful product examples from the industry.
