Metal 3D printers enable rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, to produce three-dimensional products, using digital model data from a 3D model. As opposed to subtractive manufacturing, these printers facilitate additive manufacturing by laying down successive layers of material.
A major factor driving growth of the global metal 3D printer market is various advantages of metal 3D printer over conventional manufacturing processes. A range of products of varying designs can be printed using a 3D printer and printing materials. Popularity of metal 3D printers has been increasing rapidly, as components and parts can be produced using this technology for applications in various end use industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, healthcare, etc. Moreover, metal 3D printers eliminate waste generation and expands available design options, thereby allowing manufacturers to adapt products to use less material, incorporate improved mechanical properties, avoid assembly steps, and create new geometries.

With so much change all the time, how can executives best prepare their businesses to meet the security challenges of the coming years? CSO Australia, in conjunction with Mimecast, explored this question in an interactive Webinar that looks at how the threat landscape has evolved – and what we can expect in 2019 and beyond.
An interview with CSO's David Braue and Ian Yip, Chief Technology Officer, McAffee.
According to new research conducted by the Ponemon Institute, Australia and New Zealand have the highest levels of data breaches out of the nine countries investigated. This was linked to heavy investment in security detection and an under-investment in security and vulnerability response capabilities
