Using Additive Manufacturing to Solve Supply Chain Disruptions
March 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Astoria Pacific ran into a critical supply chain issue for its neonatal fluorometer enclosure when their sheet metal supplier went out of business. With other suppliers turning down production of the enclosure, Whitney Menzel, Senior Engineer at Astoria Pacific, turned to additive manufacturing to design and produce the part.
Join this webinar to hear how:
- Using AM addressed the supply chain challenge
- They went from initial drawing to design, iteration, and production within 2 weeks
- 16 different enclosure parts were consolidated to one, for a better part overall part
- The final part was lighter and reduced manual assembly by 20X
Join Whitney as he discusses how new material advancements combined with the accuracy and repeatability of a 3D printing platform, enable the rapid and reliable production of such critical parts.
