Emerging Processes for powder-based near net shape manufacturing of advanced engineering components offer lower costs and improved product sophistication.

Near net shape manufacturing, whereby components with complex shapes are created directly, offers benefits including fewer process steps, lower environmental impact, and reduced cost at the same time as improved product quality. Recent developments in the technology now allow it to be applied across a wider range of industrial sectors and are mirrored by the increasing availability of production-scale equipment and the range of bulk powder feed-stocks. Commercial deployment is already benefiting a number of early-adopters amongst Yorkshire and Humber Region’s advanced manufacturing cluster.
