- Workflow Validation as Key to Success: Why True Additive Manufacturing Requires Unique Chemistries and Automated Post-processing: Leading chemical company Henkel will host this webinar examining the importance of post-processing in the next generation of 3D printing materials.
- Why Today’s FDM Must Evolve: Shifting from Rapid Prototyping to Rapid Production: Polish 3D printer manufacturer 3DGence is scheduled to hold this webinar on the pitfalls of moving from low to high volume manufacturing.
- Breaking Down Barriers to Additive’s Adoption: The User’s Perspective: A cross panel debate regarding the best steps to take, in order to encourage the wider adoption of 3D printing. Speakers from Ford, Google, Thermo Fisher and Fast Radius will feature alongside PostProcess.
What’s the schedule for Unlock AM LIVE?
PostProcess will begin proceedings on both days of the online conference, followed by a series of demonstrations, online classes, and group discussions by various contributors. Participants can either choose to register for the event’s full offering, or attend individual sessions depending on their area of interest and level of expertise.
Topics are set to be wide-ranging, with sections covering the advantages of adopting 3D printing, advanced materials, producing enhanced parts, prototyping, and more. The event has also been built around interactivity, with each presentation lasting for half an hour, and concluding with Q&A sessions to encourage audience participation.
PostProcess will chair both panels alongside Board Director of the Women in 3D Printing group, Sarah Goehrke. Lasting an hour each, the live discussions will aim to unpick some of the additive manufacturing industry’s hottest topics such as the pitfalls of launching with 3D printing and perfecting the FDM technique.
