Enterprise 3D Printing and Distributed Manufacturing
The terms 3D Printing and additive manufacturing (AM) both refer to the same technologies that take three-dimensional digital models and create a physical object or product. Many manufacturing companies currently use AM for prototyping, but companies have struggled to match the productivity and low cost of an automated assembly line in mass production with AM. Fortunately, AM does have current business use cases for complex manufacturing with many parts or intricate geometries, low-volume plastic parts, and highly customized parts, as well as replacement parts via distributed manufacturing platforms. Because of this, aerospace and defence, as well as medicine and dentistry, already see growth in AM use.Continue

Digital twins will minimize down-time, extend equipment’s useful life and help manufacturers meet new regulations. Early opportunities include monitoring of remote assets such as wind turbines, offshore drilling wellheads, jet engines and energy inverters as well as industrial equipment on the factory floor. When deployed successfully, these sorts of new technologies improve agility and decision-making, build in security and increase the exchanged of ideas between departments to simplify IIoT solutions and drive innovation. This webinar will cover an overview of what the Industrial Internet means today and the trends that will impact new business models and the deployment of new technologies such as digital twins in smart manufacturing.Register
