The Barnes Group Advisors agreement makes AM training available in Spain and Portugal

July 1, 2019

The Barnes Group Advisors (TBGA), headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, has signed a license agreement with ADDvance Manufacturing Technologies which gives it access to TBGA’s AM training materials to facilitate on-site training workshops for customers located in Spain and Portugal.

The agreement is expected to enable TBGA and ADDvance to work together to support the growth of AM in the countries, using organised and acknowledged training materials built from TGBA’s experience managing, qualifying, and inserting technology into aerospace, medical and other demanding fields.

TBGA’s training portfolio is said to be highly applicable to C-Suite executives, design engineers, and programme managers. It is modular and includes: a broad overview and history of AM,  a breakdown of the seven forms of technology and AM materials, Design for AM (DfAM), and an analysis of the business and economics of the AM industry.

John Barnes, Managing Director of TBGA, stated, “AM is getting more and more traction in mainstream manufacturing, so we love the mission to educate and train but we also recognise that delivery needs to be tailored to the environment. This is where we take our high-quality content and match it with a high-quality partner to deliver it in the language of the student. The ADDvance team has requisite technical experience and a strong local network. Learning about AM is one thing, hearing it in your own language is another.”

Elvira Leon, Managing Director of ADDvance, commented, “We accompany our clients in all stages of the industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing, from the exploration of the benefits that AM can bring to their business, to the real and efficient integration in their productive system. The Barnes Group Advisors offer training courses based on customer requirements and totally independent of technologies, covering technological, economic and business aspects necessary to tackle any internal project for the implementation of new technologies. It makes TBGA the logical option to use.”

“This agreement expands on our mission to build effective partnerships for sustainable AM development,” added Barnes. “I’m personally excited to help another entrepreneurial team.”
