Additive Manufacturing - Challenge the constraints of traditional manufacturing

Traditional approaches to manufacturing are no longer the only way for you to bring your product to market. It's time to think differently about manufacturing. In the era of Industry 4.0, manufacturing with additive opens new doors to be more competitive than ever before. In this session you will learn how Canadian companies are using industrial-grade Additive Manufacturing to:

> Dramatically decrease Lead Time
> Significantly reduce Costs
> Improve Production Quality
> Remove complexity from final assembly

The session will focus on the following Additive Manufacturing applications and include examples of 3D printed tools.

> High Performance Prototypes
> Surrogate Parts
> Jigs, Fixtures, Assembly Aids
> End-of-Arm Effectors
> Trim Tools
> Masking Tools
> Forming Tools
> Bridge to Tooling
> End Use Part Production
