Brett Register

R&D Technical Service Manager, DSM Functional Materials (Somos and Fiber Optical Materials)

ABSTRACT: Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing have been in the news more and more over the past few years. It is often referred to by everyone from design engineers and medical professionals right down to elementary school students. Even with all the talk, there is still a line between hobbyist using the lower cost 3D printing technologies and true additive platforms in real manufacturing applications. In this presentation, DSM will demonstrate many of the applications where true additive manufacturing makes a significant impact in industries like aerospace, automotive and medical.
