As large-format additive manufacturing starts to gain momentum in the relevant industries of aerospace, defense, wind and marine, many companies are realizing the process is not as industrial as their needs. 3D printing fosters a hacker style and home-grown mentality that innovates at an incredible pace, though often at the expense of reliability and quality that aerospace and heavy industry cannot tolerate.
The presentation will offer a unique perspective on engineering both the equipment and processes for large format printing. The presentation will demonstrate a disciplined approach to rapid technology readiness that maintains an industrial pedigree. The presentation will also cover Ingersoll’s experience developing equipment ready for the challenges of tomorrow’s production needs while making sure the equipment and process thrives in today’s industrial factory.
- Large format polymer printing in an industrial setting
