Cost-Effective Metal Part Production: Metal 3D Printing Cost Comparison.
Regional Technical Manager
Metal 3D printing is no longer a novel technology, yet how it compares to traditional manufacturing processes—especially on cost—can still be an ambiguous equation.
It has a reputation for being expensive, but is that a true apples-to-apples comparison? And how does the equation change if metal 3D printing is being evaluated as a complementary (instead of competitive) method?
During this session, we will explore how metal 3D printing compares to traditional manufacturing methods through a detailed comparison of metal injection molding and metal binder jetting. Products addressed: Desktop Metal Studio System, Shop System, Exone Innovent X

Apply, Communicate, and Evaluate Product Tolerances
Model-Based Enterprises (MBE) take advantage of Model-Based Definitions (MBD) to improve communication about product design intent across all functions and operations.
Improve implementation of your product tolerances across your enterprise
Accelerate design to volume manufacturing processes
Retain the integrity of the design intent
Protect the value of intellectual property
We will present how the OGP EVOLVE suite addressed the following examples:
A designer is struggling with the proper application of GD&T on a part
A manufacturing engineer is trying to understand why a machine operation is reaching an out-of-tolerance condition
A quality person is trying to validate that a part is within specifications
