3 Business Cases for Additive Manufacturing

Ken Burns  (Vice President, Commercial, Forecast 3D)

Date: Monday, November 30

Time: 1:00pm - 1:30pm

Track: 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing Innovation

Vault Recording: TBD

By going beyond use-cases we will explore how business-cases are driving the decision to manufacture with the 3D Printing. While it is exciting to see the impact of technologies like HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) it is equally important to understand its limitations. Identifying the correct applications will drive the success of additive manufacturing adoption. While adoption is not simply plug-and-play, there is a path to successful integration and it is not as difficult as some companies may believe. We will explore three business cases that are successful models for production with 3D Printing.
