Overview

With increasing emphasis on digital transformation and supply chain agility, many organizations are turning to additive manufacturing (AM) across the product life cycle - including for production and on-demand repair applications.  Additive manufacturing of metals and other advanced materials is growing rapidly, and is being adopted across the globe.

Interested in learning more? Join MIT Professor of Mechanical Engineering, John Hart, for this one-hour webinar, where you’ll:

  • Discover how AM of metals is driving innovation, from materials design to the factory floor.
  • Learn key considerations when selecting an AM process for metals, including quality, cost, and throughput.
  • Identify applications of AM in aviation, medical, tooling, and other industries.
  • Learn how computational design and can accelerate new innovations using AM.

Following the presentation, you can ask your own questions during a live Q&A session.
