Metal Additive Manufacturing: Case Studies, Success Stories & Getting to Production

Tue. February 5| 8:30 AM - 9:15 AM | 208B

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Focus: 3D Printing, Materials

Badge Type: Paid

Production with metal additive manufacturing is a completely different ballgame than prototyping. If you're interested in getting into production with metal 3D printing, there is a lot you should be aware of before you make the leap. In this session, Matt Sand will cover everything it takes to transition your product to production with metal additive manufacturing, including:

  • Choosing great candidate applications for AM production
  • Identifying the hidden costs of AM production
  • Calculating infrastructure requirements based on throughput
  • Understanding true ROI of end-to-end production in AM
  • Working with service bureaus to smooth your transition to AM

The material will be discussed in the context of real-world case studies from Matt's experience in metal AM production at 3DEO and publicly available success stories such as medical implants and aerospace components. In addition, the economics of metal additive manufacturing will be covered so you can understand what it takes to build a winning business case.
