Rapid Event Webinars
At the RAPID event in June, Optomec hosted a special event to discuss the state of 3D printing and additive manufacturing, with a particular focus on applying the technology to printed metals and 3D electronics. Joining the conversation was well known AM expert Bill Macy, former deputy director of America Makes. Bill talked about the economic and technical challenges that have traditionally stood in the way of widespread adoption of 3D printing in key sectors such as mil/aero, health, and electronics – challenges that are now being overcome with a new generation of printers and innovative methodologies. Optomec CEO Dave Ramahi then gave an overview of where he sees the industry heading and how products like the Optomec LENS and Aerosol Jet printers can help pave the way to greater efficiencies in a wide range of manufacturing areas.
