The UK's national AM strategy: Why the UK should embrace Additive Manufacturing

The Additive Manufacturing National Strategy, published last September by the UK Additive Manufacturing Strategy Steering Group, stated that the UK was advanced in additive manufacturing research, design and manufacturing expertise, but many UK companies were failing to apply the technology as a core part of their processes. Ahead of the sixth Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space conference, we gained exclusive insight from Paul Unwin, Chairman of the UK Additive Manufacturing Strategy Steering Group and speaker at the event. In this Q&A, he discusses the goals of the strategy, the benefits AM technology can bring to UK industry and the risks of failing to embrace it for the uncertain future of the UK manufacturing market under Brexit.
