Hamburg company Ampower publishes first study on Additive Manufacturing

05.10.2017Tips and Information

The new Hamburg Aviation member, Ampower, has launched a detailed whitepaper on the topic of make or buy decision in Additive Manufacturing on October 5 of this year.

the Hamburg based company analyzes the costs of an internal additive production in the now published study. Both the laser and the electron beam based process are taken into account. Furthermore, the supply landscape in the German speaking region is examined and the current market prices for different materials analyzed. Ampower concludes that an internal production of additive components already makes sense from an annual amount of approx. 125 kg in the case of aluminum. However, in the case of titanium internal production capacities pay off from 270 kg / year.

The 34-page study is available as a download or can be ordered as a printed version. In addition to the study, Ampower provides a calculation tool for the costs of additive components on its homepage www.am-power.de. This can help companies to estimate the internal production costs for different materials.
