Additive manu­facturing: Printing a compo­nent, layer by layer

With its use of additive manu­facturing, MTU has become one of the first engine manu­facturers to have imple­mented a process that manu­factures lighter compo­nents using selective laser melting. It will also be used in the future to pro­duce more complex compo­nents.
