3D Printing's Impact on Manufacturing

Track: Knowledge Theatre Sessions

Session Number: 170394
Date: Wed, May 10th, 2017
Time: 9:30 AM - 9:50 AM
Room: Knowledge Theater 1

Description:

As manufacturers begin to align for Industry 4.0, many struggle with removing legacy barriers associated with part performance and production efficiency. To answer this challenge, companies are seeking to build fully-integrated, automated processes across increasingly complex production environments. 3D printing is the key to eliminating legacy barriers and better preparing the industry to shape what’s next.

In this presentation, attendees will witness how 3D printing is already the foundation upon which next-generation manufacturing is built - improving operational efficiency through rapid and cost-effective creation, on-demand development, and integrated workflows. Powering more efficient manufacturing today, it also creates a framework for transforming business models, accelerating innovation, and improving manufacturing supply chains. And this transformation is not a future vision – it’s happening TODAY.

During the session, we’ll explore how noted leaders in aerospace and automotive are capitalizing on 3D printing to addresses unique requirements for large, lightweight and fuel-efficient thermoplastic parts with repeatable mechanical properties. With technology specifically designed to change how aerospace and automotive parts are built, this session will reflect how next-generation manufacturing is happening now via 3D Printing – breaking barriers and accelerating success across the entire business value chain.
