Giving the growing increase in interest in additive manufacturing in the auto industry, our sibling publication Additive Manufacturing held a conference dedicated to that subject (i.e., additive manufacturing in the auto industry) at the 2019 North American International Auto Show.

In the event that you didn’t make it or if you did make it and you find yourself wanting to revisit some aspect of the program, here’s a way that you can do it, thanks to our colleagues at AM.

Ford Advanced Manufacturing Center

Here’s an example of where additive is coming into its own: At the $45-million Ford Advanced Manufacturing Center in Redford, Michigan, there are 23 3D printers. Eric Kouba, additive manufacturing operations supervisor at the facility, is checking out progress in one of those machines.

If you go here and provide a little bit of info there’s a whole lot of video that provides a breadth and depth of information regarding the aforementioned subject that you’re unlikely (and the odds are indeed quite small) to get anywhere else.

Presentations are made by folks from Ford, Carbon, Renishaw, Sodick, Siemens PLM, Hackrod, and Desktop Metal—clearly a solid range of people who are deeply involved in the technology.
