Businesses from across the North East region are invited to find out more about the benefits of 3D printing and how they can be applied to their companies.
The event is hosted by CPI, the KTN and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, of which CPI is a member, for companies of all sizes to learn more about the game-changing potential of additive manufacturing (AM) processes.
Additive manufacturing, often referred to as 3D printing, is a technique by which components or complete products are built in layers directly from digital data. It enables the precise control of active components used in product manufacture and is a highly flexible technique, with short lead times and lower manufacturing costs than traditional manufacturing. The technique has applications in a wide variety of markets and can be used for both prototyping and production projects.
The event will include case studies presented by end-users of the technology, allowing attendees to gain a better understanding of the technology’s applications in their markets. The advantages of the process over traditional methods will be discussed, as well the perceived barriers to adoption.
Attendees will also hear about the funding support available to eligible SMEs, through the ERDF IMPACT project. This allows SMEs to apply for funded technical support to develop innovative new products and processes suitable for 3D printing or precision layering technologies.
The event, on Friday 14th February at CPI in Darlington, is aimed at AM adopters across the whole AM supply chain and is relevant for companies of all sizes.
