3D Printing News Unpeeled

Our Executive Editor Joris Peels, who’s also the Vice President of Consulting at Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR), offers a news livestream one to two times a week called 3D Printing News Unpeeled at 9:30 am EST. For each episode, Peels gets on LinkedIn Live and tells us, in 20 minutes or less, what he considers to be the top news stories from the 3D printing industry that week, and why they’re important. Some of the stories in his roundup are ones we’ve covered at 3DPrint.com, and some are not, but they are all equally interesting and impactful!

June 11 – 12: Advanced Manufacturing for Defense

The third iteration of IDGA’s Advanced Manufacturing for Defense Summit, held in collaboration with ASTM International, will be held in Pasadena, California from June 11-12. Attendees will learn about strategic perspectives and industry trends from key decision-makers at organizations like the US Navy, Lockheed Martin, and others. Real adopters of AM will share their first-hand experiences, successes, and lessons learned with advanced manufacturing, and because the event is hosted in collaboration with ASTM International, crucial topics focused on qualifications and regulations will also be front and center.

“This gathering, conducted in collaboration with ASTM International, will serve as a nexus of defense primes, government leaders, industry leaders, technical vendors, and startup innovators, where collaborative discussions will unfold against the backdrop of recent investments, as well as program initiatives funded by the current administration and major defense and aerospace companies, adding a layer of timeliness and relevance to the discourse.”

June 12: TRX Webinar with America Makes & Skuld

The latest America Makes TRX webinar will be this Wednesday, June 12th, from 2-3 pm EST. Sarah Jordan, CEO of Skuld, LLC, will present “Roadmap to Achieving Low Cost Additive Manufacturing for Metal,” with a focus on a new hybrid process that her company is developing and commercializing. AMEC merges polymer 3D printing with lost foam investment casting, and Jordan will review a case study where AMEC was used to produce a part that was 1030 steel, weighed 85 lbs., sold for $4/lb., and was produced net shape in less than a day. The discussion will focus on the roadmap that shows where AMEC is going.

“Roadmaps tell you where you need to go to get where you’re going. However, they are predicated on what the end target is. Skuld’s focus is on developing the most efficient metal manufacturing processes possible. Within additive manufacturing (AM), we are focused on solving the key problems that limit adoption: namely cost and qualification.”
