August 16: 3D Printing Insoles with Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W

On Wednesday, August 16th, at 11 am EST, Formlabs will hold its first webinar of the week, “Revolutionize Your Insole Production With Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W.” Featuring Gaurav Manchanda, Director, Medical Market Development for Formlabs, the webinar will explain how to save time and money, while still increasing insole production, with the Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W and Nylon 11 powder. Attendees will learn the benefits of a digital workflow for producing insole shells, associated scan and design workflows, how Nylon 11 powder performed in independent testing, success stories, and more.

“From grinding to milling, personalized insole production has traditionally been a labor-intensive process characterized by a lot of material waste. Many larger, high-volume insole production operations have already made the transition to digital manufacturing, but the historically high cost of industrial 3D printing has made that transition difficult for small to medium-sized insole companies and podiatry labs.

“With the lowest CapEx in the industry, Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W is the perfect solution to begin transitioning to digital manufacturing at a fraction of the cost. This compact, yet powerful technology was designed to fit into any workspace without worrying about special ventilation or power requirements. Best of all, you won’t need any specialized training and can begin running your first production within 24 hours of installation. It really is that easy.”
