GE Additive on Metal Powder Bed Fusion Technologies

Moving on to Wednesday, March 30th, GE Additive is holding a webinar at 10 am EST on “Unlocking the Mystery: Differentiating Metal Powder Bed Fusion Technologies.” The specifics of laser powder bed fusion (LPBF), electron beam powder bed fusion (EBPBF), and binder jetting will be discussed, and the advantages of each technology compared and contrasted. Additionally, attendees will learn when they might choose one form over another, and the industries paving the way in adopting metal PBF 3D printing.

“A variety of powder-bed-fusion (PBF) technologies are available for additive manufacturing of metal applications. While they are similar in the way parts are made layer by layer using metal powder, each technology offers its own advantages. But how do you know which option is right for your needs, and why would you select one over the other?”

Solving Supply Chain Disruptions with ASME

In a Carbon-hosted ASME webinar at 2 pm EST on the 30th, Whitney Menzel, Senior Engineer at Astoria Pacific, will discuss how the company learned how “AM Solves Supply Chain Disruptions.” Astoria Pacific’s sheet metal supplier went out of business, and as other suppliers were turning down the production the company needed, Menzel decided to design and produce the part using additive manufacturing. During the webinar, attendees will hear how the company addressed the supply chain challenge and rapidly produced critical parts using AM. They’ll also hear how 16 different enclosure parts were consolidated down to one, which reduced the weight of the final part and decreased manual assembly.

“Astoria Pacific ran into a critical supply chain issue for its neonatal fluorometer enclosure when their sheet metal supplier went out of business. Hear how they turned to AM to design, iterate, and produce the parts within 2 weeks – including consolidating 16 different enclosure parts to one, and reducing manual assembly by 20X.”

Using AM to Solve Off-Shore Supply Chain Issues

Speaking of supply chain challenges, another webinar at 2 pm EST on the 30th will explain how “Additive Manufacturing and 3DP Can Solve Off-Shore Supply Chain Issues.” Hosted by DesignNews and sponsored by CPC, Nexa3D, and igus, the webinar will discuss how AM became a hero during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the new role of the technology in the manufacturing world, what it takes to set up in-house additive manufacturing, future uses, and more. Speakers will be Rob Spiegel, Senior Editor, DesignNews; Sarah Goehrke, Senior Director, Strategic Communications and Ecosystems, Nexa3D; Preston Souza, Product Manager – Additive Manufacturing, igus, Inc.; and David Vranish, Customs Business Manager, CPC.

“With troubling supply chain issues, North American manufacturers are seeking supply production closer to home. One major solution is using 3D printing. The additive manufacturing process allows for just-in-time inventory close at hand. Some manufacturers are turning to service companies while others are setting up 3D print production in-house. This webinar looks at the additive manufacturing options for manufacturers.”
