- Products & Systems
Additive manufacturing (AM) has long disrupted the prototyping stage of product development, but recent advances in speed of operation, improved materials, and optimization software, now see AM becoming a disruptive force in production scenarios. Today in many instances AM is a cost-effective and timely alternative to conventional production technologies. AM is the cornerstone of future digital production infrastructure and is a key driver in the Industry 4.0 revolution. AM promotes design freedom and stimulates the creation of hitherto impossible to achieve geometric complexity. It also has the ability to localize production and overcome issues associated with unwieldy international supply chains.
Motion systems play a huge role in promoting the flexibility, speed, and product quality delivered by any AM technology. ALIO’s portfolio represents a one-stop-shop covering all possible positioning requirements from a simple XY-stage, 6D Hybrid Hexapods, gantries, or fully assembled motion solutions.
