Action Mold and Machining’s Additive Manufacturing Manager Greg Nemecek and Matt Duffey, Marketing & Advanced Development for AM discuss AM education and ROI because they both strongly believe that education and ROI go hand in hand—without a solid understanding of additive manufacturing’s value, you cannot understand the true ROI of the new tooling. This episode is sponsored by Iscar USA.
This duo sets the stage by describing the team and technology that make up Action Mold & Machining’s additive capabilities, including their laser powder bed system and new young AM advocate in training.
Then we discuss the company’s AM goals, recommendations for getting the entire team to buy into adopting AM.
Next week I’ll share part two of this conversation that takes a look at the importance of having the capabilities to offer support to your customer beyond AM and how AM in moldmaking is quickest return on investment.
