Workshops are customized with the following topics based on an assessment of experience and needs of the group. Each topic is available in both basic and advanced levels.
› Part selection – Understand how to identify parts that can benefit from AM and which criteria to consider when doing so
› Drivers – Learn which values drive your AM projects and how to identify and analyze them, supplemented with case studies
› Cases – Analyze different AM cases from various industries to gain insight and inspiration
› Technology overview framework – Discover AM technologies and materials, their pros and cons, and their suitable fields. Evaluate and compare various AM production processes
› Overcoming limitations with smart design – Find out which aspects to consider during the design phase and how to turn them into advantages. Discover new design possibilities with AM, like integrated functionality and lattice structures
› Technology-specific course design – Expect each topic to be customized to the technologies you’ll use most and their limitations and advantages
"After the re-engineering work, we managed to bring the assembly time down by about 25%. We saw around a 20% reduction on the cost of parts, and more if you factor in the time saved on assembly."
