ARC Group Worldwide, Inc., Deland, Florida, USA, has successfully hosted its first ‘Metal 3D Printing School’ at its Additive Manufacturing division, 3D Material Technologies (3DMT). According to the company, attendees from numerous leading aerospace and defense, power generation, and electronics manufacturers attended two days of in-depth instruction where they received a detailed overview on Additive Manufacturing technologies.
3DMT’s ‘Metal 3D Printing School’ aims to combine technical education and analysis with specific, real world applications, offering examples of how it says manufacturers can derive significant engineering and economic benefit through the use of the company’s AM expertise. Attendees were introduced to the company’s holistic AM solution, which provides the key to simplifying the supply chain, improving product performance and reducing product time-to-market.
“Customers continually see all the exciting things about 3D printing; they read all the press releases, but they are not certain how to make AM a reality within their own organisations,” stated Ashley Nichols, 3DMT General Manager. “Our vision of the 3D school is to teach technicians, engineers and purchasing agents how to practically use Additive Manufacturing to really take advantage of the technology and make their projects a success.
The next ‘Metal 3D Printing School’ will be held on September 20-22, 2017. For further information, prospective attendees should contact Stephanie McMenimen ([email protected]).
