Description (excerpt):

The purpose of this report is to equip wind industry professionals with the fundamental information needed to best leverage additive manufacturing techniques in their design and manufacturing decisions. Herein an overview of each of the seven families of additive manufacturing is provided, along with typical materials used in each process, current ranges on process speeds, materials and system costs, and examples of systems on the market today. Using the lens of large-scale additive to suit the needs of the wind industry, the processes that are well-suited to large-scale production are down selected from the seven families and additional information with design guidelines specific to each process are detailed. A companion document titled “Relevant Additive Manufacturing Materials for Wind Industry” elaborates on the specifics of relevant material properties and test methods for additive manufacturing materials.
