POSTPONED – Just Because You “CAN” 3D Print Something, Doesn’t Mean You “SHOULD”
September 9, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
NOTE: This event has been temporarily POSTPONED – a new date will be announced soon.
With the widespread use of very clever marketing, it would seem that 3D printing can solve all of your problems…The reality of industrial Additive Manufacturing (3D printing for real parts) is that learning how to leverage any new technology requires investment in people, equipment and new tools.
Understanding the levers that make 3D printing valuable is the key to a successful ROI. Let’s dive into the reality of 3D printing.
PRESENTER: Tim Bell is the Head of the CoC for Additive Manufacturing for Siemens Digital Industries USA and is a seasoned Manufacturing veteran and Cincinnati Ohio native.
He has spent more than 35 years in manufacturing and was trained as a Journeymen Toolmaker in the 1980’s. He spent the next 20 years as a machinist, programmer, designer, and entrepreneur of small contract manufacturing companies. The last 15 plus years have been focused on Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) of components and assemblies supporting the aerospace, defense, and medical industries.
He has successfully launched four US companies, two of which were foreign owned/ joint ventures, taking them from ground zero to profitability and becoming leaders in their respective fields.
