There is a tendency to think small when it comes to the capabilities of additive manufacturing. It’s good to step back and look at how long the industry has been here. Look beyond what you think can be accomplished.
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
Solid Concepts will be showcasing advanced manufacturing solutions at the UTARI Symposium this week in order to discuss the capabilities of custom manufacturing, specifically additive manufacturing, which provides countless solutions to development and manufacturing challenges. It is the company’s first year contributing to the symposium. Solid Concepts is dedicated to presenting innovative technology solutions which improve upon previous manufacturing processes, significantly shorten time to production and manufacturing costs, and expand production capabilities.
“There is a tendency to think small when it comes to the capabilities of additive manufacturing,” says Scott McGowan, Vice President of Marketing at Solid Concepts. “It’s good to step back and look at how long the industry has been here. Look beyond what you think can be accomplished.”
Solid Concepts will be available to discuss PolyJet, Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), 3D Color Printing, and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). Each of these additive manufacturing technologies present unique solutions to rapid prototyping and low volume production in industries ranging from medical and aerospace to toys and consumer goods. The company will also showcase their QuantumCast™ Advanced Cast Urethane capabilities as a viable solution to medical products, customized low volume production, housings ready for market, and high quality anatomical models. The solutions the company offers also include higher volume productions with Tooling and Injection Molding, a traditional manufacturing method that has greatly benefited from preliminary prototyping with additive manufacturing. Solid Concepts will help visitors understand the kinds of manufacturing or design problems that will most benefit from each advanced technology.
Solid Concepts works to educate and further advance these manufacturing technologies in order to propel the possibilities of creation and invention in the minds of students and the next generation of engineers, designers, researchers and inventors.
