Additive Manufacturing Media Announces New Educational Presentation Series
Presented with IMTS spark, the series will explore how 3D printing technology is changing the face of manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing Media is launching AM In-Depth, a series of discussions with those involved in production 3D printing exploring what is next for additive manufacturing (AM) technology. The series will be part the of IMTS spark platform and is scheduled to run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during the weeks of 9/21 and 9/28. There will be two speakers per day, one at 1:00 Eastern, one at 2:30 Eastern.
Sessions will focus on real-world applications of industrial AM, sharing the successes and speed bumps it took to get the applications up and running, with the sessions including Q&A with the presenters. Topics include design for additive manufacturing (DFAM), processes, materials, implementation strategies, serial production and more. Presenters are pulled from OEM manufacturers like Varroc Lighting Systems; research institutions like Penn State University; and contract manufacturers like Cumberland Additive, Knust-Godwin and Tangible Solutions.
“We want to take a deep dive into what is making additive technology tick in modern manufacturing,” said Peter Zelinski, Editor in Chief of Additive Manufacturing Media and the program director for AM InDepth. “If you are already working with 3D printing, developing your AM for production plan, or just trying to figure out how the technology could benefit your business, you will find valuable information here.”
The Association For Manufacturing Technology and Gardner Business Media have teamed up to introduce IMTS spark, a new digital platform, that will connect manufacturing professionals with the latest technology advancements, industry experts, educational deep dives, networking opportunities and top notch experiences.
Each session will feature a real-world application of industrial additive technology and share the successes and speed bumps it took to get it up and running.
Plenty of companies are taking advantage 3D printing’s disruptive nature in the manufacturing space, but I came across an Amsterdam-based startup that is taking the disruptive concept even further.
3D printing expands possibilities for plastic parts, short-run molds and production mold tooling. Here are just 10 of the ways 3D printing is advancing:
Bringing rapid prototyping capabilities in-house is becoming a reality for many plastics manufacturers, thanks to more affordable, faster, and easy-to-use 3D printers.
