Additive manufacturing is changing the nature of product development and manufacturing in emerging industries. As three-dimensional (3D) printing and rapid prototyping - just two of a host of technologies known as additive manufacturing - become more capable and functional with a broader range of materials, these machines are increasingly being used to make final products.

During this session you will:

  • Hear why a regional cluster model can enable rapid adoption of additive manufacturing
     
  • Find out how additive manufacturing can help companies in emerging industries create better products
     
  • Learn why additive manufacturing gets products to market faster and cheaper in emerging industries
     
  • Encounter real-world applications of additive manufacturing technology
     
  • Discover what is in store for additive manufacturing in Northeast Ohio


Who should attend:

Decision makers in the industrial value chain from CTOs and COOs of OEMs to management of high-tech suppliers and subcontractors, entrepreneurs, business development specialists, procurement management, system integrators, design and engineering experts, machinists, and all other professionals eager to learn what additive manufacturing has to offer.
