Gareth Dykes - FI Innovations
Let's be honest, Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) is a kind of Witchcraft and fully understanding where the fit is alongside traditional manufacturing can be difficult. Let Gareth and Derek guide you through how polymer Additive Manufacturing has gone from prototyping to production. The technologies that we will focus on will be Select Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA) and Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM).
