Abstract

Along the last year, additive manufacturing technologies has been proving to be a real game changer in several market segments. Nevertheless, the main foundation of production and flexible manufacturing systems generally considers classical technologies. For that reason, the present work aim to propose and investigate manufacturing systems which includes additive manufacturing technologies as part of the main or secondary production flow. As result, it was identified that several marketing segments, types of components and different annual volumes tend to be better attended by hybrid flexible manufacturing systems which includes additive manufacturing technologies.
