“IMTS is an ideal venue to demonstrate how additive manufacturing fits in with existing subtractive technologies as part of a process chain,” said Andrew Snow, senior vice president, EOS of North America. 

“Events like the NAUD are instrumental in educating manufacturers about additive manufacturing and helping fast-track it onto the production floor alongside traditional processes,” added Ed Morris, director of America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute. “As organisations recognize the competitive advantage this technology offers – everything from optimised product designs to value optimization through streamlined supply chains and reduced inventories – we want to help them accelerate their implementation of this innovative technology.”
