Methods 3D, Inc., a subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc., based in Sudbury, Massachusetts, USA, has announced that 3D Application Engineer Chad Spark will speak at the upcoming Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference, to be held at the Hilton Chicago, USA, on March 19-23, 2017.
Spark is expected to discuss some of the ways in which manufacturers can seamlessly combine traditional and 3D technologies in order to complement each other, and achieve exponential benefits for manufacturers and customers.
The presentation, which will be held on March 20, 2017 from 4:00-4:30pm, will look at how to fully realise the advantages of advanced AM design and functional intent, via the seamless integration of Additive Manufacturing; how the transition from prototyping and development to full manufacturing is critical to the success of metal AM implementation; and why AM has moved into production in industries as technically demanding as aerospace, automotive, dental, medical and tooling.
Methods 3D, Inc. is comprised of a dedicated team of industry experienced, highly-skilled technical sales and applications engineers, fully integrated with, and leveraging the extensive machining and manufacturing experience of, Methods Machine Tools, Inc. The companies’ partnership enhances Methods’ portfolio of leading-edge precision machine tools and solutions for traditional manufacturing with advanced AM solutions, enabling their customers to enter new markets and expand their manufacturing capabilities.
“Transitioning from design and prototyping to full manufacturing production is a vital topic that many OEMs and contract manufacturers have not been exposed to, yet essential for successful metal AM solutions,” stated Benjamin Fisk, General Manager, Methods 3D, Inc. “Chad Spark’s presentation will fully explore this and provide valuable insight and practical guidance on the subject.”
