“When you gather a group of manufacturing experts, professionals, technology and service providers at an event to discuss additive manufacturing it’s going to get interesting—and full of heartfelt stories that shaped careers.
The half day event took place on March 7th at the Michigan State University Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan near Fisher Unitech’s headquarters. This was the first in a series of ten Driving Manufacturing Innovation events taking place in multiple cities.
The inherent desire to innovate was common among the guest speakers, which included additive manufacturing experts from Ford Motor Company, Catalysis Additive Tooling and Stratasys. Also common is that they were “car guys” who had grown up tinkering with machinery and working in the automotive industry. Finding new and innovative applications for additive manufacturing with 3D printing is a natural progression. If there is a better, cheaper, faster way to manufacture parts or tooling fixtures they will prove it.”
