Additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing, is quickly becoming a serious and established tool in the manufacturing industry. From design and prototyping to workholding and even short run production, additive manufacturing is quickly gaining adoption due to its improvements in capabilities and the falling costs of equipment.
Join Michael Storey, Managing Partner of Beckatt Solutions, as he discusses industrial applications for 3D printing. Learn about the latest composite materials strong enough to pull a car, and the small-scale SLS technology which finally makes powder-based 3D printing a cost-competitive production technology.
Demonstrations of the Ultimaker S5 and Sintratec Desktop SLS will be available. Numerous 3D printed industrial parts will be shown. Manufacturing professionals, engineers, designers, makers and students are all welcome!
