IME West 2022

From April 12-14 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, IME West 2022 is taking place. This leading advanced design and manufacturing event brings together several conference and trade event brands: MD&M West, WestPackATX WestD&M West, and Plastec West, along with the Design. Engineer. Build. Conference and the Cannabis Packaging Conference. Thousands will merge across several verticals, like automation, design, and more, for meetings, education, new product discovery, and networking. Plenty of industry companies will be attending, like Arburg, showcasing both its AM and injection molding solutions, and MatterHackers. igus is co-sponsoring a happy hour event, HCL CAMWorks will explain how integrated CAD/CAM and automation technologies can benefit your CNC machining operations, and 3DEO is attending as well.

“Education and peer-to-peer connection are paramount right now, especially given the acute nature of the manufacturing industry’s challenges. The first issue that impacts our community daily, which we would be remiss not to explore, is supply chain disruption. The pandemic has drastically impacted how we conduct business and is setting the stage for a new era for the manufacturing industry,” said Adrienne Zepeda, Group Event Director, IME West. “Secondly, issues surrounding workforce vacancies resulting from generational trends are sparking innovation and wider investment in automation. With so much progress on the horizon, education and forward-looking insight are more important than ever. We are so excited to open day one and day two with timely keynote addresses to initiate much-needed conversation and open the door to long-term solutions.”

America Makes Holding AMNOW Polymer Challenge Webinar

Together, NCDMM and America Makes are set to hold the AMNOW Polymer Challenge, meant to give people working with AI and data analytics in advanced manufacturing the chance to demonstrate their capabilities in a competitive setting. Participants will use a dataset that the AMNOW program recently developed which introduces intentional anomalies into the material extrusion process. The dataset includes filament information, build layout and geometries, slicer information, pressure test results, and more, and participants will demonstrate their ability to use data analysis to detect and predict these anomalies. On Tuesday, April 12th, at 10 am EST, America Makes will hold a Project Call briefing about the challenge.

“While high-cost industrial machines and feedstock are producing industrial production parts in almost every industry, the same degree of consistency and quality is not demonstrated on low-cost desktop printers.  In-situ monitoring using low-cost sensors and data analysis offers the potential to evaluate the quality of a part without expensive or destructive testing.  Ultimately, when this monitoring is coupled with closed-loop feedback, the ability to produce industrial-grade components with lower-cost printers and feedstocks could be realized.”

3D Systems on SLA Performance & Productivity 

At 2 pm EST on the 12th, 3D Systems is holding a webinar on “Multiplying SLA Performance & Productivity for the Factory of Tomorrow.” David Leigh, the company’s Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Additive Manufacturing, will be on hand during the webinar to discuss SLA-based 3D printing, which is well-known for its prototyping quality and part accuracy but is about to go through a big change. The webinar will also include an interactive Q&A session.

“Join us as we reveal how revolutionary innovations for SLA will provide breakthrough gains in speed, throughput, material performance and cost-efficiency for factory-floor production. These innovations now more effectively answer your requirements, from prototyping to production, whether you are a service bureau, automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, foundry or medical device manufacturer.”

3D Printing in the Classroom

Educational technology solutions provider Boxlight works to improve learning and engagement in classrooms, and develops products to help educators enhance student outcomes and build important skills. At 4 pm EST on the 12th, Boxlight and educational tech company Mimio, which it acquired in 2016, are holding a round table discussion on “3D Printing in the Classroom.” Boxlight’s Education Consultant is hosting the round table discussion between a panel of SMEs eager to share tips, their favorite classroom 3D printing projects, and more. The panelists are middle school science teacher and STEM enthusiast Aaron Sottile; Scott Hagedorn, Director of Instructional Technology and 3D Printing, Robotics, and MS Tech teacher at an independent school; and Robo 3D co-founder Braydon Moreno, who’s also Boxlight’s STEM Director.

Once considered out of reach and cost-prohibitive for the classroom, 3D printers have recently found their way into nearly every school. Whether you are an expert, novice, or still crossing your fingers to get one in your building, this session is for you. Our group of expert panelists will discuss printing tips they’ve learned and implemented, curricular connections, and amazing project ideas. It’s never been easier or more cost effective to begin your 3D printing journey – why wait? Plan on joining us to learn from our experts in the field!”

3D Printing in Hospitals with 3DHEALS

Finally, 3DHEALS will hold a webinar about “3D Printing in Hospitals” at 11 am EST on Thursday, April 14th. Sponsored by HP and Synopsys, the speakers at this webinar will be Dr. Robert Hannan, MD, Director, Cardiovascular Surgery Advanced Projects Laboratory (APL), Medical Director, Quality, Nicklaus Children’s Health System, and Cardiovascular Surgeon, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital; Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Radiology at the University of California San Francisco Dr. Shafkat Anwar; Muhanad Shraiteh, Digital Transformation Engineer with Nicklaus Children’s Health System; Imre J. Barabás, leader of the Semmelweis 3D Centre (SE3D) at Semmelweis University; Business Development Manager for the Synopsys Simpleware Product Group Kerim Genc; Senior Biomedical Engineer Thomas Haglund, who manages the APL at Nicklaus Children’s Health; and Dr. Stephen Ryan, Family Practice Physician at Eastern Health and the Co-Founder and CCO at PolyUnity Tech.

“In recent years, many hospitals have started making a shift, from using medical images primarily for diagnostic purposes, to integrating them in patient-specific surgical planning. This has created enormous advantages for hospitals and their patients and is largely supported by the clarifying regulatory landscape, increased governmental support, new public and private initiatives, and the expanding role of the radiologist as an imaging expert. As part of this, an increasing number of hospitals across the world have integrated the practice of 3D printing into their medical care. Hospitals are recognizing the added value it brings to personalized patient care and the countless possibilities that are becoming a reality, in creating better treatment options.”
