February 22: 3D Printing Jigs & Fixtures with Formlabs

Jigs, fixtures, and other manufacturing aids are used internally by businesses to make assembly and manufacturing more reliable and simple by improving operator safety and reducing cycle times, which in turn can reduce production costs and streamline operations. To hear more, sign up for this Formlabs webinar at 11 am EST on the 22nd to learn how to “3D Print Jigs and Fixtures to Boost Manufacturing Efficiency.” Juliette Combe, Application Engineer, Product Team, will teach attendees how 3D printed jigs and fixtures can lower costs, and guide them through the workflow of quickly 3D printing strong, lasting tools and replacement parts for the factory floor with both SLS and SLA printers. Real-life case studies from each stage of production will also be presented.

“With new advances in additive manufacturing technologies and materials you can now replace the standard expensive machined metal jigs and fixtures with lightweight, ergonomic, and part-specific 3D printed tools, with a wide range of materials to enable functional applications. In-house 3D printing enables you to build manufacturing aids rapidly and at a low cost to improve the speed, quality, and efficiency of production. It increases design freedom to build complex, custom tools and encourages continuous improvement. With 3D printed replacement parts, you can grow operational agility, solve day-to-day production issues and reduce machine downtime.”

February 22: Metal 3D Printing for Food Processing

Also at 11 am EST on Wednesday, Desktop Metal will be joined by Elliði Hreinsson, founder of Curio, which produces seafood processing machines for heading, filleting, skinning and sharpening. In a webinar on “Metal 3D Printing for Food Processing Industry,” Hreinsson will share his experience using five DM Studio Systems and two ETEC Envision One 3D printers to design and optimize food equipment, all the way from rapid prototyping to batch production in 316L stainless steel with Bound Metal Deposition. His latest filleting machine uses over 100 metal 3D printed parts, and the technology enabled him to reduce time to market by a whole year. Attendees will learn how to combine metal 3D printing with other methods for more efficient production, applications from filleting machines that highlight the challenges of traditional manufacturing and the benefits of additive, and more.

“Designing and manufacturing the complex mechanical assemblies of food processing equipment can be challenging. 3D printing offers value-added solutions to overcome hurdles like long lead times and expensive tooling. Building parts layer-by-layer eliminates many limitations of CNC machining and other traditional manufacturing approaches with benefits like increased design flexibility.”

February 23: 3DHEALS Hosts World Community Managers Festival

3DHEALS will wrap up things on the medical front, but not in the way you might think. Also on the 23rd, from 9-10 am PST (12-1 pm EST) and 4-5 pm PST (7-8 pm EST), the organization invites its entire healthcare 3D printing and bioprinting ecosystem to meet its global community managers via Zoom during its World Community Managers Festival, as a way to say hello and learn about what the various communities have been up to during the pandemic; 3DHEALS anticipates a “revival of in-person events,” as well as hybrid events, later in 2023. After updates from community managers and local partner organizations, attendees are free to visit community “booths” and connect in small groups. The first session will welcome community managers from New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Detroit, and Eastern Europe / Budapest, while the second welcomes managers from Munich, Chicago, India, Vancouver, Melbourne, Brazil, Singapore, and San Francisco again.

“Since 2018, 3DHEALS has decentralized its community activities from San Francisco, California, USA, to more than twenty cities throughout the world. This growth was mostly organic by motivated and special individuals, 3DHEALS Community Managers, who came from all walks of life ranging from techies, and designers, to entrepreneurs, doctors, and investors. The goal of these local groups and events aims to bridge the knowledge and experience gap between 3D printing, an emerging technology, and the established healthcare and life science innovation ecosystem. It takes a village to make things happen!”

February 23: Scaling Metal AM Production with 3DPrint.com & Velo3D

The first of three webinars at 2 pm EST on the 23rd will be co-hosted by 3DPrint.com and Velo3D, about “Unlocking the Potential of Metal AM: Strategies for Scaling Production with Velo3D.” Moderated by Joris Peels, the discussion will focus on the roadblocks to scaling metal AM, and how you can use Velo3D’s fully integrated metal AM solution to overcome these challenges by mitigating variation through standardization. Velo3D’s Technical Sales Engineer Sid Raje and Technical Business Development Account Manager Matt Karesh will discuss the importance of standardized print parameters, the role of fleet-level calibration in combating print variability, how a universal set of instructions allows for consistency across a global network of 3D printers, and more.

“Metal additive manufacturing (3D printing) is quickly becoming a vital technology used in the aerospace, energy, and tooling industries to manufacture complex parts more efficiently than they could using traditional manufacturing methods. But while conventional metal AM excels at producing one-off and low volume parts, many of the same conventional systems lack the repeatability required to bring parts production to scale.”
