Advanced Polymers for Challenging Real-World Applications-Norm Stucker, General Manager at PADT
PADT is a globally recognized provider of Numerical Simulation, Product Development, and 3D Printing products and services. PADT will discuss using advanced polymers for challenging real-world applications like aircraft and space. This is based on PADT’s work with Lockheed, Honeywell, Northrop Grumman, Sierra Nevada, as well as both Sandia and Los Alamos. He will also provide a review of the newer engineered plastics and some real-world applications along with what the operators had to do from a facilities, process, and quality standpoint to make it happen.
Industrial 3D Thermoplastic Printing Made Safe and Easy-Tom Jackson, Southwest Territory Sales Manager at RIZE Inc.
Rize has overcome key challenges in the additive manufacturing arena, such as complex, costly and unsafe processes, insufficient material properties, lack of authenticity, and lack of high strength. Rize has identified and met the industry’s most pressing needs commendably using its patented Augmented Deposition technology. This award-winning technology is safe, cost-effective, improves productivity, and has been proven feasible to print a single part with varying material properties at the voxel level. This breakthrough has been well received across industries like automotive, aerospace, life sciences, consumer goods, building and construction, and retail.
Office-Friendly Metal 3D Printing Solution-Jay Murray, Sr. Channel Manager at Desktop Metal
Desktop Metal’s Studio System+ is the world’s first office-friendly metal 3D printing solution. The Studio System is designed for office use and eliminates lasers & loose powders often associated with metal 3D printing, making it safe to use in any facility. Unlike other systems, there is no third-party equipment or special facilities required—just power and an internet connection. The Studio System makes it easy to print metal parts in-house. Integrated software automates the process to take the guesswork out of achieving parts with good metallurgy. Typical applications include: functional prototyping, low volume production, tooling and Jigs & fixtures. Material include: 17-4 & 316L stainless steel, H13 tool steel, 4140 alloy steel, Alloy 625 and Copper.
