Infographic: Manufacturing Technology Selection Guide

The infographic below details the considerations to be taken into account when choosing the right manufacturing process. Follow the guide and select the most suitable technology according to your requirements.

Some are cheap and produce low-quality parts while others are costly and produce high-quality parts. Every customer’s requirement is different so are manufacturing technologies

Is a metal or a plastic part needed? Should the part be functional or can is it a prototype? How many parts are needed? Is the design complex? Should the part be readily usable or does it need a post-processing treatment? These are the fundamental questions one must ask himself before choosing a manufacturing process.
