Member Event: Fibre Reinforced Additive Manufacturing

January 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) has evolved beyond non-functional prototypes and now many users are producing end use parts by utilising advanced printing materials, such as those offered by MarkForged, to create parts with sufficient strength and accuracy to replace parts that would have typically machined from metal.

Join the SAM Team and experts from Additive-X for an event that explores 3D printing with parts reinforced with Carbon Fibre, Kevlar and Glass Fibre. These reinforced parts have a strength approaching that of aluminium however, are produced without any complex machining or human oversight. This webinar will look at what separates Markforged 3D printers from other brands, included will be a slicing software demo that is used for fibre placement along with an applications overview linking to case studies, cost of ownership and ROI.

The SAM Project is an ERDF funded project that supports SME advanced manufactures in the North East of England. During this webinar, a member of the SAM team will discuss how the team can support your company with a range of support areas. Further details here: www.samprojectuos.co.uk
