NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Introduction to 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing to Assist Traditional Manufacturing
05/11/2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
This introductory workshop is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for small manufacturing enterprises in the defense supply chain. For more information, please visit ccat.us/NERDIC.
3D Printing (or Additive Manufacturing) is a powerful tool available to manufacturers. Some companies are adopting the technology to produce end-use parts, but even if your customers are not sending you RFQ’s for additively made parts, most companies can adopt additive to create tools, fixtures, prototypes and other aids to assist traditional manufacturing processes. Some types of AM can also be used as a powerful repair and part modification tool shortening lead times on critical repairs and replacement parts.
By the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will:
• Understand what AM is, and the materials and equipment used
• Case studies of companies using AM to aid or supplement their traditional manufacturing processes
• Next steps in learning more about using AM in your company
