As additive manufacturing has moved from prototyping to production, industry has a new tool to manufacture components that can't be achieved with traditional manufacturing. An area that has been overlooked by many in industry is to use materials that historically can't be processed with traditional manufacturing. This session will provide examples where there were significant benefits to the application by moving from a traditional alloy to a more exotic selection that was well-suited for additive manufacturing. It will also touch on the economics of these material changes and some the qualification aspects required to make the switch.
