July 18: CASTOR & Materialise Optimizing AM Processes
At 10 am EST on the 18th, CASTOR and Materialise will hold a webinar, titled “From identifying AM parts to streamlining production: How to optimize AM processes and accelerate time to market.” Experts from CASTOR and Materialise CO-AM will explain to attendees how they can overcome challenges encountered when qualifying parts for AM, and how they can earn success on the factory floor by streamlining operations across supply chain partners and internal teams, while also reducing costs, material usage, and time. They’ll learn how to automatically choose the optimal parts for 3D printing with CASTOR’s integrated software, how to enhance collaboration and communication through data transfer and real-time tracking with the CO-AM software platform, and more.
“The qualification of additive manufacturing (AM) parts can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Evaluating which parts can be profitable and selecting the most suitable materials require expertise and extensive analysis, involving both design and financial considerations. Once parts have been identified for 3D printing, a collaboration between internal customers, supply chain teams, and AM champions can become complex. Without a proper AM operating system, streamlining requirements definition and getting visibility of the concept-to-production cycle may lead to delays and miscommunication.”
You can register for the webinar here.
July 18: Automated PolyJet Post-Processing
PostProcess Technologies will hold one of its ‘How it Works’ webinars at 10 am EST on the 18th. This one will focus on “Automated PolyJet Post-Processing,” and includes a demonstration of the company’s automated PolyJet support removal solutions, with the solutions running on its proprietary AUTOMAT3D platform. Plus, attendees can engage with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
“Conducted by one of our engineering experts broadcasting from our lab, you will get a close-up view of how software, hardware, and chemistry work together for transformative end part results.”

July 20: Rapid Material Characterization with Exum
Also at 2 pm EST on the 20th, Exum Instruments will hold a webinar about “Rapid Material Characterization Outside the Traditional Lab Environment.” Using rapid chemical characterization can help speed up new material development, final part failure analysis, and quality control processes for virgin and reused feedstock, and Exum’s new instrument combines dual-laser ionization source (laser ablation laser ionization) with time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometry. Exum’s CEO/CTO Jeff Williams will present the company’s new analytical technique, demonstrate its intuitive user interface, discuss the results of several case studies for metal powder quality control and build failure analysis
“Full chemical characterization for most additive manufacturing (AM) metals requires at least three different analytical techniques, specialized skills and significant time and lab space to properly execute. Instead, a new desktop instrument rapidly quantifies the metallic, trace and light elements in a matter of minutes. Its user interface is as easy as a smartphone so it does not require chemistry expertise to prepare a sample, analyze its components or create chemical maps.”
