WEBINAR: Mass production in additive manufacturing
Additive manufacturing applications are rapidly evolving. Manufacturers are moving from rapid prototyping to small or even large series production. Their objective is to leverage the benefits of additive manufacturing such as the ability to design custom-made, complex and durable parts thanks to high-performance materials and industrial machines. Therefore, they are moving from using additive manufacturing to rapid prototype to producing end-use parts at scale. What are the challenges companies face when adopting additive manufacturing for mass production? Do current supply chains allow for this type of production? How can manufacturers overcome these challenges?
On the 7th of July, we will be joined by advanced materials company Arkema, who develops 3D printing materials for various processes (extrusion, photopolymerization, powder bed fusion), and who also works closely with many professionals and manufacturers in the sector to produce quality parts. The company is focused on unlocking new opportunities by developing valuable partnerships with leaders of the market such as EOS and ERPRO. 3D Printing Solutions by Arkema is the business dedicated to forming these valuable partnerships and developing materials that fit the needs of manufacturers in AM. As you may know, additive manufacturing materials need the correct specifications to work on AM systems and provide repeatability, accuracy and precision. This is why it is key to start by developing the correct materials for manufacturers’ needs.
One of Arkema’s projects was carried out in collaboration EOS and Erpro Group, enabling the production of millions of 3D printed mascara brushes every week for CHANEL. EOS is the world’s leading technology supplier in the field of industrial 3D printing for metals and polymers. Additionally, Erpro Group has been providing a full range of services for the manufacture and finishing of AM projects, from prototype to small and large volume since 1997.During this webinar, we will also be joined by these two companies to discuss mass production.
