Croft Additive Manufacturing launches new industry workshop

July 20, 2017

Croft Additive Manufacturing (CAM), Warrington, UK, has launched a new industry workshop to support those wanting to find out more about metal Additive Manufacturing and its benefits. According to the company, attendees will be given a detailed introduction to the fundamentals of metal AM as well as the opportunity for ‘hands-on’  experience with the production process, from the initial concept stage through to the finishing of components.

CAM will deliver its workshop from the company’s Warrington headquarters, within its metal Additive Manufacturing production facility. The Company Directors, Neil Burns MBA and Louise Geekie PhD, will run the course in person, sharing their advice on how AM technology can benefit businesses within a range of sectors.

“Additive Manufacturing has the potential to revolutionise how products and machines are designed and built,” stated Geekie. “But with so much information out there, it can be disconcerting for anyone who wants to find out how they can use the technology themselves. Our new course will offer a jargon-free, non-academic introduction to the design and manufacturing processes that will be accessible to those with even the most basic understanding of the technology.”

“Croft was an early adopter of Additive Manufacturing technology and having amassed a considerable amount of expertise, it’s now time to spill the beans and help other businesses realise its potential,” added Croft. “This technology is the future of industry, and we want to help introduce as many people as possible to it.”

As a specialist AM company, Croft provides metal AM opportunities to a range of industries in the UK and overseas. Its in-house team offers innovative, flexible product design and manufacturing services. Course attendees will see metal components being additively manufactured on the company’s Realizer SLM-250 metal AM machine and gain insight into how SLM technology can reduce labour and production costs.
