“After the course, I presented a business case to my leadership on how Additive Tooling can save us time and money while adding complexity to our tools… Your course was a pivotal moment in my career"
PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) January 27, 2020
The Barnes Group Advisors (TBGA) is offering their industry leading Additive Manufacturing (AM) Certificate for the first time in an open enrollment format. Learners will gain a solid understanding of all critical aspects of AM and how to implement and generate value using AM in their own organization. Past learners have realized a 40:1 return on investment in identified company savings using AM.
The TBGA Activate AM Training is geared to professionals who want to upskill their AM knowledge and earn an AM Certificate. TBGA instructors are AM engineers who bring the real world production experience of developing processes and qualifying AM hardware for flight and other demanding industries to an interactive, applied learning setting.
To earn the TBGA Activate AM Certificate, learners apply their new knowledge in a team-based exercise to develop a business case for AM adoption for a real-world application. The training is constructed of the following:
- Discover AM – Gain a working knowledge of AM
- AM Technology & Materials – Understand the 7 ASTM AM technologies and key material and manufacturing applications
- Design for AM – Apply Design for AM in multiple technologies and understand design for manufacturing
- AM Business Case Economics – Evaluate process economics and cost drivers of AM to build a business case to support implementation
The training is unique as it provides learners with tangible next steps for AM adoption, as evidenced by a current TBGA AM Certificate earner’s feedback, “After the course, I presented a business case to my leadership on how Additive Tooling can save us time and money while adding complexity to our tools… Your course was a pivotal moment in my career…now I get to use this powerful technology to open up many eyes of (previously) non-believers of AM!”
TBGA Founder and Managing Director, John Barnes, shared his motivation for the open enrollment offering, “Our AM Training has successfully reached big groups of learners at large manufacturers and identified more than $3M worth of AM savings. Now we want to also reach the small to medium size business that needs to upskill 1 to 5 people.”
Presenting sponsor Neighborhood 91, the world’s first end-to-end AM production campus, is offering a scholarship for this unique training; the deserving recipient will be announced in the next few weeks. Additional sponsors include Tooling U-SME and Carnegie Mellon University’s Next Manufacturing Center. The workshop will be held at the brand-new Mill 91 facility in Pittsburgh.
