Event Description:

Join SLM Solutions for a Tech Takeover presentation at Automation Alley focused on selective laser melting technology and the impact it's having on the manufacturing industry.

Did you know 3D printed metals are quickly moving into production applications? Ford made history recently when it created the largest metal 3D printed automotive part. When used for prototyping, the quality of the metal parts produced is of lesser importance, and material defects or inconsistencies can be largely tolerated or ignored. When used for manufacturing end-use metal components, it is the consistency, repeatability, reproducibility and reliability of the components that are of significant importance.

SLM Solutions will highlight some of the challenges overcome by OEMs and suppliers across many industries as they successfully work to qualify and certify laser technology to manufacture critical end-use parts.

Speaker:  Kyle Adams, Applications Specialist, SLM Solutions
