This presentation will focus on 3D printing — also known as additive manufacturing (AM) — which has the potential to profoundly change the way companies design, manufacture and deliver products to market. A cornerstone of the 4th Industrial Revolution, AM is a key enabler that revolutionizes the entire product lifecycle — transforming designs, supply chains and even business models.
Ric will highlight the benefits of AM; historical challenges to broad adoption; recent advances in materials, processes, and software tools; and strategies and tactics for deploying AM in your organization. From the architecture and components to the performance and cost-per-part benefits, hear insights into the many ways companies are adopting AM to consolidate assembly lines, compress supply chains, and customize products at scale to remain competitive and profitable. Attendees will learn the strategies and tactics required to elevate their AM approach and prepare for Industry 4.0.
