Join us for a workshop in our Additive Manufacturing Series. This webinar will discuss why the Additive Manufacturing (AM) industry is interested in making larger parts faster, and look at a variety of case studies showing the possibilities with large-scale AM. As the technologies and equipment used in Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing continues to evolve, the ability to make large parts is growing. Additive technologies are being routinely adapted to large robotic and Cartesian systems to create end-use parts and manufacturing…Find out more »
Join CCAT and RAM Engineering Solutions, LLC. for a deeper dive into the specifics of how to setup Model Based Definition (MBD) for your organization. With some preparation, MBD can be a few clicks of the mouse. For simple models, nothing more may be necessary. For complex models with unique situations, proper set-up may capture most of the work with only minor adjustments required. Learning Objectives: • Paradigm shift of ‘defined’ / ‘fully-defined’ - too much, not enough, just right…Find out more »
NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) Additive Manufacturing Processes
This introductory workshop is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for the New England defense supply chain. For more information, please visit ccat.us/NERDIC. Valued at a $7.3-billion worldwide market value in 2017, additive manufacturing (AM) is disrupting multiple markets by enabling engineers to rapidly manufacture parts having substantial geometric freedom. Unfortunately, this geometric freedom is often realized with materials having insufficient properties (e.g., stiffness, strength, melting temperature) for production requirements. Addressing this problem, the rapidly-growing additive manufacturing…Find out more »
Join CCAT and ENDAQ for an overview of vibration predictive maintenance and learn the benefits of implementing such a program in your facility. You will also learn how to get started by identifying a proof of concept at your facility and how to begin acquiring data to demonstrate the value of an expanded program. Concrete examples with real data will be shared and a range of commercially available products will also be provided so you can end the webinar with…Find out more »
