Additive Manufacturing

Time to rethink designs for heating elements and high-temperature components

Additive manufacturing has been integrated in recent years as part of the production process in the aerospace, automotive and other industries. However, the relatively young manufacturing method has been limited in the heating industry – until now. Kanthal® Additive Manufacturing opens possibilities where the only limitation is in the mind of the designer.
