Smart Manufacturing Experience April Webinar

The last webinar on Wednesday, April 20th, from 3 to 4 pm EST, is by SME, focused on “Workforce Development Support for Smart Manufacturing.” It’s one of the nonprofit’s monthly webinar offerings leading up to the Smart Manufacturing Experience event in Pittsburgh this June. Moderated by Dan Sloan, Strategic Partnerships Director for Tooling U-SME, panelists Conrad Leiva, Director of Ecosystem and Workforce Development for CESMII, and Lisa Masciantonio Chief, Workforce Officer at the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute, will have a live discussion on some of the unique workforce challenges for the Smart Manufacturing workforce transformation, the tools and programs available to help upskill the incumbent workforce, and more.

“As the manufacturing industry continues to evolve, employers will need to recruit, hire, and develop a smart manufacturing workforce capable of working with modern cyber-physical systems and embrace data-driven business models. Previous workforce investments with community partners and internal incumbent employee programs will now need to address a new spectrum of emerging Smart and Cyber job roles. Understanding the important advantages of a Smart Manufacturing business model and the emerging skills and competencies that will be valued by the Smart Manufacturing industry will help employers build the necessary programs and produce the skills for their organization.”

ASTM: Build Orientation & Supports for PBF-LB

At 10 am EST on Thursday, April 21st, ASTM’s AM Center of Excellence (AMCOE) is holding a webinar on “Metal PBF-LB Build Orientation and Supports Considerations.” Instructor Mark Kirby, with the University of Waterloo’s Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing (MSAM) lab, will teach attendees about the importance of supports, evaluating build layouts, and decision-making workflows, all in terms of metal PBF-LB technology. Topics will include support strategies for medical devices, the interaction between supports and orientation, support removal, neglected parameters, and more.

“Love them or loathe them, supports are literally the foundation of most LPBF builds. Getting this part of the process right is critical to success.  Unfortunately it seems that recipes for good supports are often learnt the hard way, and may not be formally documented. This is the definition of art vs science.  The webinar will attempt to shed light on the science of supports, by exploring many practical examples of both success and failure.”

You can register for the webinar for $49 here.

Stratasys on the Holistic Approach to AM

Continuing its webinar series, Stratasys will present “A Holistic Approach to Additive Manufacturing” on Thursday at 12 pm EST. During this brief webinar, attendees will hear live customer testimonials of the company’s products from James Page, CTO of Riven; Oqton Application Engineer Robin Huizing; and Mark McGarry, Oqton Senior Sales Director. These speakers will explain what value they’re bringing to the Stratasys platform.

“As the rise in additive manufacturing and its uses become more apparent, the need for a trusted, end-to-end solution becomes increasingly necessary for early adopters. The GRABCAD additive manufacturing platform and its software partners offer just that.”

Improving Engineering Efficiency with ASME & Onshape

ASME is holding a webinar on “Improving Engineering Efficiency: Top 5 Improvements Teams are Making Now” at 1 pm EST on the 21st. Mike LaFleche, Principal Technical Services Engineer for Onshape, will present the “top five” critical steps that product teams are taking to improve their performance in the future. Attendees will learn how to maximize their productivity by getting rid of CAD crashes and file corruption, version control confusion, and more.

“In today’s competitive environment, small process improvements in product development processes can improve productivity and drive innovation. Whether a small startup or a multi-national, process optimization can often yield long term benefits in efficiency, time to market and profitability.

“So, how do you begin to review your current tools, workflows and data management capabilities?”

3D Printing in Prosthetics with 3DHEALS

3DHEALS will focus on “3D Printed Prosthetics” in its latest webinar, at 2 pm EST this Thursday the 21st. Sponsored by HP, the webinar will be moderated by Dr. Jenny Chen, the Founder and CEO of 3DHEALS, and panelists will be Founder of PPprint GmbH Professor Hans-Werner Schmidt, with the Universität Bayreuth; Samer Moussa, MS, CPO, Product Manager – Strategy & Incubation, 3D Printing, for HP; CEO of the Victoria Hand Project Michael Peirone; Albert Shih, Professor in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Michigan; and Bryan Craft, Application Specialist with Spentys.

“Over the years, the images of disabled children with colorful prosthetic limbs inspired impactful movements like the ENABLE community and Victoria Hand Project, as well as enumerable passionate innovators who have pushed the boundaries to increase accessibility and lower the cost of orthotics and prosthetics. However, the field of 3D printed prosthetics has advanced significantly since the days of ENABLE hands. These advancements include not just hardware, materials, but also software, designs, 3D scanning, and lately completely digitalized workflow at the point of care, often leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence. More importantly, technologists are now working more closely with clinicians to create a more efficient and more evidence-based patient-centered clinical solution. In this highly anticipated webinar, we invited experts with decades of technical, business, and clinical experiences and diverse perspectives to give the attendees a 360-degree view of the current and future status of the industry.”

End-to-End AM Solutions by NAMIC & SMF

At 2 am EST, which is 2 pm SGT, “An Overview of the End-to-End Additive Manufacturing Solutions” will be presented in a webinar co-organized by NAMIC and the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF). Spare Parts 3D will share how manufacturers can digitize their parts inventory and identify parts for 3D printing, while AM service bureau ELH Tech will present successful case studies to show the feasibility of adopting technology like AM. Attendees will also learn what kinds of support are offered to lower the barriers to AM adoption, including funding from NAMIC and training programs from Singapore Polytechnic.

“The adoption of additive manufacturing is seeing continuous growth in Singapore and the government has invested significantly into public additive manufacturing (AM) infrastructure in the recent years.

“Discover with AM experts the end-to-end solutions that AM can provide, from design to fabrication and post-processing, and how the technology can be utilised to improve your business workflow.”
