Presentation Summary

Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been in the media for a certain time as breaking wave of technological change that is ending industrial production as we know it. While a lot of expectations are overinflated, there is an underlying reason for the excitement and investment wave across industries.
AM has been helping to produce components with nearly unlimited geometrical complexity, allows for vast customization, reduces the need for stock, increasing business agility for products smaller quantities and many other reasons.
This talk with Autodesk's Industry Manager Manufacturing, Karl Osti, will outline the possible applications as well as outline best practices when applying Additive Manufacturing. Process cost really become competitive when Subtractive and Additive is being combined and integrated - That's hybrid manufacturing establishing a new level of operational excellence. Please join us to learn more about:
• The latest on available technologies, processes, applications and challenges
• The economic reasoning behind the current fundamental expansion of the industry and other external forces even accelerating the pace of disruption in industries.
• Case studies and use cases that highlight the underlying transformative power that Additive Manufacturing is carrying with it.
