Croft Additive Manufacturing (CAM)—a UK-based provider of metal product design and additive manufacturing (AM) services—is running a Let’s Spill the Beans about Metal 3D Printing workshop at its headquarters and AM production facility in Warrington, Cheshire, on August 9, August 24, September 8 and September 19, 2017.
The workshop is aimed at those individuals with little or no prior knowledge of 3D printing. Attendees are to be given a detailed introduction to AM, covering all seven of the AM technology categories, as well as hands-on experience of the production process, from initial concept stage through to finishing of components.
In particular, they will be able to see metal parts being produced on the company’s Realizer SLM 250 3D printer and learn how selective laser melting (SLM) technology can reduce labor and production costs.
CAM's directors Neil Burns, MBA, and Louise Geekie, PhD, will present the workshop and advise on the advantages that 3D printing technologies are able to offer businesses in a range of sectors.
‘Croft was an early adopter of additive manufacturing technology and having amassed a considerable amount of expertise, it’s now time to spill the beans and help other businesses realize its potential,' commented Burns. 'This technology is the future of industry, and we want to help introduce as many people as possible to it.’
Geekie added: ‘Additive manufacturing has the potential to revolutionize how products and machines are designed and built, but with so much information out there, it can be disconcerting for anyone who wants to find out how they can use the technology themselves. Our new course will offer a jargon-free, non-academic introduction to the design and manufacturing processes that will be accessible to those with even the most basic understanding of the technology.’
The cost of the workshop is 249.00 GBP + VAT (322 USD) per person and includes lunch and coffee breaks.
