Interview Series: America Makes Future of the Supply Chain Expert Q&A

Discussion 4: Lowering Costs | How to Handle Bottlenecks

The fourth installment of the America Makes Future of the Supply Chain Q&A interview focuses on how to deal with bottlenecks after the 3D Printing process to lower the cost-per-part. Follow John Wilczynski (Executive Director, America Makes), Michael Shannon (Senior Manager, Hewlett-Packard), Lou Rassey (CEO, Fast Radius), Cullen Hilkene (CEO, 3Diligent), and Terry Wohlers (President, Wohlers Associates) on an in-depth discussion, and stay tuned for future videos in our series.

Talking Points

  1. Printing small parts in a cage, printing medium sized parts in a runner system, there’s tricks of the trade for tracking and stuff
  2. Companies should create standard work that is repeatable and reduce variability for a part by creating these standards, which is especially enabled now with our Industry 4.0 work taking place in the digital world.
  3. Innovations is taking place in this space like scanning tools that reviewed parts on a conveyer belt and, combined with A.I., identify the part and decide next steps for its path in the production process.
