Display and education on Additive Manufacturing /3D printing. Learn how this technology can
1) Reduce cycle time of a new product launch,
2) Reduce cost to manufacture the product by supplying high precision (+/- .005 inch) production quality plastic components as initial prototypes.
3) Produce low volume parts which do not yet provide a ROI for dedicated tooling, for example - replacement parts for obsolete equipment.

Attend our Open House, view the 3D Printer in action, visit with representatives of our company, along with AdvanceTek – resellers of Fortus equipment, and attend one of the presentations “How 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing can be used for Tooling, Jigs & Fixtures” by the Stratasys Corporate Applications Engineer at 10:30AM, 12:30PM and 2:30 PM.
