This Week: 3Diligent Talks Metal 3D Printing at FABTECH in Chicago

Posted on Nov 07, 2017 by Cullen Hikene

It’s hard to believe that there are just under two months left in 2017! It’s been a busy year for 3Diligent and things aren’t slowing down as I head out this week to FABTECH in Chicago!

FABTECH is taking place November 6-9, at McCormick Place, where more than 1,700 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees come together to explore the latest industry products and developments related to metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing.

I’m excited to share that while at the show I’ll present “Making Sense of Metal 3D Printing” where I will compare the range of different metal printing technologies, offering my perspective on their pros, cons, and common applications. I’ll cover a range of technologies including laser melting, electron beam melting, binder jetting with metal infiltration, directed energy deposition, nanoparticle jetting, and metal plating of plastic or resin parts.

If you’re interested in attending, I’ll be speaking on Wednesday, November 8 at 10:30 am in room S402A. You can get more information on my speaking topic here. If you’re attending the conference, but not available to join my talk you can contact me here if you’d like to schedule a meeting.

Looking forward to seeing all of the innovation in metal at FABTECH and hope to see some of you at the show. If you won’t be attending, stay tuned for details on my quick drive south for my talk at Inside 3D Printing San Diego next month!
