How to Pick the Right Additive Manufacturing Process for Reman

Remanufacturing relies on a variety of process steps not performed during original product manufacturing, and as such, many of these processes have not undergone the same extensive refinement, standardization, and technological optimization that are typically implemented during the initial manufacturing stage.
