This webinar will present an overview of 3D printing and how the technology helps manufacturing operations become leaner by eliminating wasted time, materials, space, and labor. Attendees will learn how 3D printing can reduce design-to-production cycle times through rapid and iterative prototyping, and how the broader spectrum of materials now available makes 3D printing a practical approach to many tooling applications as well as to producing replacement parts on demand. Attendees will also learn how manufacturing operations can take maximum advantage of these enhancements by establishing an in-house 3D printing capability. The presentation will explain how, as the costs of purchasing and using a 3D printing system continue to decline, the return on the investment of setting up an in-house capability has become greater and is realized sooner.
- Learn about the future of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.
- Understand the technological and material advantages and limitations of the current state of the art in 3D printing.
- Explore the issues affecting the adoption of 3D printing and additive manufacturing in diverse industries and applications.
