September 21: 3D Systems on AM Agility & Efficiency

Wednesday, September 21st will be a busy day of webinars, starting at 7 am EST with 3D Systems on “Production Agility & Efficiency with Additive Manufacturing.” Sam Green, Principal, Product Marketing for 3D Systems, will discuss how the latest advances in AM contribute to agility and efficiency in manufacturing, how a new generation of materials is influencing AM production outcomes, and more.

“Driven by consumer demand, the life of many of the products we use is constantly shrinking. The effect on upstream manufacturers is to place more emphasis on a shorter time to market and a compressed product development cycle. Additive Manufacturing helps by digitizing one of the least automated parts of the product development process – traditionally prototyping, but which today also includes low-run production and tooling. Where in the last 20 years the power of 3D printing has been brought to bear on the ‘product definition’ and ‘product creation’ stages of the product cycle, it is now also positively impacting the ‘industrialization’ stage. When additive manufacturing is able to deliver both high productivity and required part mechanical performance, the end result is the ability to churn out thousands or tens of thousands of repeatable, production parts at a cost that makes sense for short series or batch run production.”

September 21: Why You Should Leverage Simulation in AM

The final webinar on Wednesday the 21st is by America Makes, and this TRX webinar on the “Top 3 reasons to leverage simulation in additive manufacturing,” held at 2 pm EST, will be presented by Christopher Robinson from Ansys. Attendees will learn why additive simulation should be considered and the basic terminology, how it can help reduce long-term costs, when to use it, and more.

“Imagine 3D printing a part and hearing ‘oops’ from your operator or engineer. What’s the first thing that goes through your mind?…How much is this going to cost us? Whether you’re producing parts out of plastic, resin, or metal, the cost fluctuates, especially with metal additive printing.

“Why Ansys? A leader in simulation technology, our software helps digitally predict your ‘oops’ in your manufacturing processes, essentially giving you back money. Think of it like a ‘rebate’. Predicting fail before it happens, and end up with a nice surprise of no additional costs.”
