Name: Industry 4.0 In Focus Episode 08: 3D Printing's Impact on the Supply Chain
Date: September 1, 2020
Time: 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM EDT
Event Description:

“It is my hope that when people look back on the Fourth Industrial Revolution 50 years from now, they are going to be talking less about the Internet of Things (IoT) and more about how we removed 30%-50% of material that we had in automobiles and how everything has become more efficient,” Ric Fulop, CEO and co-founder of Desktop Metal recently said. While additive manufacturing has not replaced traditional subtractive manufacturing methods, the technology has the potential to impact global production and supply chains in many ways, including reduced material waste, increased flexibility and the ability to decentralize production. On this episode of Industry 4.0 in Focus, we are joined by Dr. Peter Wawrow, director of applied research and development at St. Clair College, and contributor to Automation Alley’s 2020 Technology in Industry Report (available for digital download July 13) for a deep dive into the future of additive manufacturing and how it is making us rethink the way they deliver products to end users.
