SEMINAR - Improving Tooling Profitability with Additive Manufacturing (AM) (March 21st, 2019)


For decades voestalpine through our industry-leading brands has worked to combine a thorough understanding of manufacturing challenges with a forward-thinking embrace of innovation. In the manufacturing community it is rare that a day goes by when we do not hear or read about the transformational opportunities offered to manufacturers by Additive Manufacturing (AM).  However, a challenge faced by many is cutting through the hype and struggling to ask the right questions: how do I identify the good opportunities for AM? Who to partner with? Where should I start – new part or existing parts?  In this seminar, we will address these questions so attendees walk away more informed in how to start or continue in exploiting the potential of AM.
