BURLINGTON, Mass. - Z Corporation will spotlight designers' and engineers' increasing ability to create more innovative products with 3D printing next week at TCT Live 2011, Stand #D12. The premier event for product development and additive manufacturing in Europe, the TCT Live exhibition and conference takes place Sept. 27-29 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.

Z Corporation will lead two sessions that document how ZPrinting is improving the product development process, saving time and money, and enhancing communication for its customers.

Sessions include:

"Additive Manufacturing Tech Briefs"
Z Corporation Vice President of Product Management Joe Titlow will provide a technical overview of the company's latest product and material advancements.
Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 1:15 p.m.

"In-House Prototyping a Breakthrough for Time-Honored Shoe Industry"
Ross Authers of Clarks International UK, another Z Corporation customer, will detail how this leading, global footwear manufacturer has transformed its development process to release better, more stylish shoes earlier in the fashion life cycle. Clarks has removed weeks - and in some cases, months - from the design process with Z Corporation 3D printing technology.
Thursday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m.

"These sessions will give TCT Live attendees an invaluable firsthand look at how far rapid prototyping has come," said Z Corporation Vice President of Marketing Kevin Lach.
