A select group of Colorado manufacturing design engineers are benefitting this week from a special additive manufacturing course sponsored by Key Equipment Finance and KeyBank, with support from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade and other partners.
The Denver event, as part of Manufacturing Month, is presented to 50 manufacturing professionals by H2 Manufacturing Solutions and GE Additive. It is part of the outreach commitment by Manufacturer's Edge, a statewide manufacturing assistance center that made an outreach commitment to advance knowledge of additive manufacturing in the Rocky Mountain West.
Taking place today and tomorrow, GE Additive's Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) course is providing the manufacturing professionals with cutting-edge information on creating and manufacturing high-value parts using optimized designs and materials. The course would normally cost $3,000 per seat but is fee to participants.
Topics covered include an introduction to additive manufacturing, design for additive manufacturing, additive material characteristics and selection, additive part selection, machine and part qualification, as well as break-out exercises and open discussion.
GE expects industrial 3D printing to forever change the manufacturing world as we know it. The 2-day course is one step Colorado design engineers are taking to prepare for that change. For more information on the event, visit here.
