The Panel will be part of the McGill AM event “Top Business Applications for Additive Manufacturing” February 27, 2019
This coming February 27 is the additive manufacturing event “Top Business Applications of Additive Manufacturing” at McGill in Montreal. Réseau Québec-3D (RQ3D), Canada Makes and McGill University partner for this industry focused event designed to help companies adopt one of the main pillars of Industry 4.0: 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing.
Last week we discussed one of the featured panels “3D Printing and Lightweight Robotic End Of Arm Tooling (EOAT),” and how it is now being used in a number of fields for manufacturing of end devices. This week we’ll have a look at the other featured panel for the day “Machining Challenges in an Additive World.”
Once again we bring in some of Canada’s leading experts on the topic metal additive and machining, the panel will be moderated by Moderator Fabian Sanchez of Siemens and includes panelists; Christian Desravines, Usinage Multiconcept, Éric Thibault, Bell Helicopter and Jared Kozub of Precision ADM.
This panel will be a good opportunity learn about best practices, the advantages and challenges companies are facing in adopting AM.
Discussion will focus on what impacts is AM having on machining and how do the technologies complement each other.
Panelist intend to talk about the importance of the design in the integration of AM through machining and offer a better knowledge of the technology and understand how we can design for AM.
Design for AM is an item that companies are struggling with (Topology optimization, part growth vs shape and loads, distortion due to metal shrinkage, surface finish, etc). Be ready to hear questions about what help AM companies can provide to end-users and the challenges to certify an aircraft part and more.
Join us on February 27 at McGill for this great opportunity to meet and learn from leading practitioners of 3D Printing and join the 4th Industrial revolution. View the agenda
