FREE WEBINAR: 5 Things to Consider When Evaluating Additive Manufacturing
This webinar will look at five keys areas that are vital to placing additive on the manufacturing floor right next to your injection molding production lines.
“Additive is such a great technology, but when you start to talk about manufacturing, there are many challenges to consider before a company makes the switch to a new process like additive manufacturing,” Bruce Bradshaw of Evolve Additive Solutions says.
So, to follow up my June issue feature with Evolve on how to calculate the full cost of additive manufacturing and to tease our upcoming AM in Plastics Workshop at Amerimold, Bradshaw is going to present a free webinar that digs a little deeper into the five keys areas that a company should look into if it wants to place additive on the manufacturing floor right next to its injection molding production lines.
Those five areas are materials, speed, quality, scalability and cost.
Often companies limit their additive technology options for manufacturing because they are unable to address these five crucial factors when calculating the full cost (and benefit) of additive manufacturing for each process considered. Tune in to this webinar to learn more about these critical criteria.
Bradshaw will also provide a peek under the hood of Evolve Additive’s new STEP technology and how it can produce injection molding quality parts for quantities of up to 1M parts annually.
