“With the rapid increase in the adoption of metals based additive manufacturing equipment, companies are struggling to find personnel familiar with the equipment and the process,” the AMUG said. “Recognizing the need for additional training, the metals track will be all-encompassing.” 

The metals part of the conference will feature:

Overview of the various additive metals machines and materials available on the market today

Set-up, preparation, optimization and post-processing with additive metals machines, including suggestions for support design, part orientation, and support structure impact

Applications, case studies, comparisons and success stories.

The metals track will also include technical presentations and hands-on sessions. Anyone interested in participating as a technical presenter for the metals conference should contact Bob Zubrickie at info@pictureitonthis.com.
