Two Game-Changing Approaches for Manufacturers

Andrea Cookson | GSMI

 

3D printing and rapid prototyping have been present in the additive manufacturing industry since 1988 but overall, companies are still trying to catch up with emerging trends and new applications for design and development.  Additive manufacturing has evolved into a serious game-changing method of manufacturing over the years and ultimately the commercial technology involved has provided innovative approaches and advantages to overall product production. Nevertheless, premier companies struggle to measure how to effectively produce significant ROI with their technology and increase overall efficiency in development. Are you looking to radically improve your bottom-line by investing in commercial technology for cutting-edge manufacturing? Do you know the practical uses of this technology right now? For you? In your business? Here are two ideas to start understanding the strategic implications of additive manufacturing for your company:

 

Continue Your Education in Design, Development, and Innovation

One of the best places to rev up your company’s upper level engineering initiatives is to attend B2B conferences like the Additive Manufacturing Industry Summit held in Dayton, OH on September 20- 22, 2016.  At industry events, attendees have the opportunity to listen to over 25 presentations, participate in comprehensive workshops, and learn how other companies are tackling similar challenges in areas like prototyping and part validation.  If you are looking to tap into a wealth of knowledge and leverage the right instruction from industry peers, convince your boss to send you to a B2B conference for direct training in how to increase your company’s ROI.

“This event is the just the right mix of technical business, and legal subjects of Additive Manufacturing.” – Gerard Nanni, Manager of Supply Chain, Bell Helicopter Textron

 

Network with the Best Minds

Many organizations are successfully applying new technologies to the production of finished goods and their expert leaders gather at industry events and executive meetings to discuss emerging trends. By networking with other professionals and vendors in the industry, you will be able to take a pulse of the newest tools, technologies, and processes from the best minds to better understand the expanding revolution of the manufacturing industry.  The Additive Manufacturing Industry Summit offers the unique opportunity to meet the experts, but also witness the work being done first-hand. Join fellow additive manufacturing professionals to propel technology beyond prototyping and modeling and into actionable, production-ready applications.

“A great event to learn and become a part of a seemingly new technology! ” – Duane Kelly, Design Engineering Manager, Astronics Corporation

With these two proactive approaches, you can change your thinking pattern to leverage the full potential of additive manufacturing technologies and achieve the long term wins it promises for business.  To learn more about the Additive Manufacturing Industry Summit, please visit their website: www.amisummit.com/dayton-2016/

FASTSUITE - Focus on efficiency in Digital Factory

With two product lines, FASTSUITE for V5, which is seamlessly integrated with CATIA/DELMIA V5, and FASTSUITE Edition 2, a standalone platform, the areas of OLP (offline programming), manufacturing simulation and virtual commissioning are the core of our business activities. Our applications and solutions are not only focused on real customer needs, but they are also designed to improve efficiency and quality of our customers' manufacturing processes. No matter if the process is just about offline programming of a single robot at a small job-shop company or about the validation of a complete production line at an Automotive or Aerospace OEM. We strive to ensure a constant quality of our services and to provide the best possible support to our worldwide customers. Therefore we have established three digital manufacturing hubs around the world. All our teams have a proven expertise on manufacturing process integration and profound IT implementation skills.
