As additive manufacturing (AM) makes its way into mainstream manufacturing more and more, a growing number of large original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have looked for new ways to adopt the technology. Among the most recent is construction equipment maker Caterpillar, which has signed a deal with AM solutions provider FIT AG to 3D print aluminum and titanium parts.

Together, the two companies will explore how AM might be leveraged in the heavy manufacturing space, as FIT AG combines its knowledge of 3D printing and engineering with Caterpillar’s expertise in heavy construction equipment.
