    • Cost Justification and ROI for Metal Additive Manufacturing

      Session Time:
      Wednesday, March 28, 2018
      3:30 pm - 4:00 pm
      Room 103A

      Bryan Hodgson
      Aerospace Applications Leader
      3D Systems

      Session Description:
      Bryan is going to discuss the conversation that should happen between engineering and manufacturing in part selection. This would include the design process changes that need to happen when you’re designing for additive manufacturing. With 3D printing, designers can create the parts to do live testing before they can fully analyze them, disrupting current internal processes for the design cycle. He’ll also discuss how to focus your design efforts after part selection, targeting specific joining operations/special processes to reduce total cost of ownership and improved part lifing.

      • Part selection
      • Design process disruption
      • Understanding total cost of ownership
    • Technology Breakthroughs: Ensuring Repeatability, Quality Control & Reliability

      Session Time:
      Thursday, March 29, 2018
      8:45 am - 9:15 am
      Room 102C

      Neal Orringer
      Defense Alliances & Partnerships
      3D Systems

      Session Description:
      A new technology is being developed to accelerate quality control for aerospace production systems that includes not only cameras and sensors embedded in metal additive manufacturing solutions, but also next generation software that will help operators predict and mitigate potential defects before they occur. The presenter will discuss current research in process, leading aerospace companies, America Makes and the Department of Defense as backdrop that helps develop the solutions that are important for accelerating the quality control in aerospace production systems.

      • Next generation tools for building air-worthy/flight critical components
      • Challenges for qualifying additive manufacturing parts for the aerospace industry
      • Technology trends in the metal additive manufacturing industry
