Florida Companies Host 3D Printing Seminar

Aug. 11, 2015
Making 3D printing a part of your manufacturing process is the subject of a free seminar and follow-up webinar hosted by electronic components distributor Intercomp USA and aerospace metals supplier KAM Specialties.

Intercomp USA, an independent electronic parts distributor, and KAM Specialties, a parts prototyping service provider and raw materials distributor to the aerospace, electronics, industrial, and energy markets, will host a free seminar in conjunction with Becoming 3D and the South Florida Manufacturers Association aimed at additive manufacturing and 3D printing’s “game-changing impact on manufacturing,” according to seminar organizers.

The seminar takes place this Thursday, August 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Axis Space in Las Olas River House, 333 Las Olas Way, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

“What was only a vision is now a tangible reality within the manufacturing industry,” said Grant Sadowski, co-founder and Chief Print Strategist of Becoming 3D. “3D printing is increasingly being adopted by many large companies such as Ford, GE, Boeing, and other manufacturers, and they are now understanding the benefits of embracing this method as part of their manufacturing process.

The seminar includes the following sessions:

  • 3D Printing and Short Run Manufacturing, by Charlie Koch, President, 3Axis Development
  • Advancing Revenue Goals via Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, by David Sepanik, director of engineering and supply chain, KAM Specialties and Intercomp USA

“It is very interesting to know that there are many innovative companies right here in our own backyard,” said David Hofer, executive director and board member of KAM Specialties and Intercomp USA. “South Florida companies are gradually facilitating the access of 3D printing to manufacturers who are interested in reducing part prototyping timeframes, materials waste and costs while also customizing products to suit their customers’ needs.”

Registration is required for the seminar and seating is limited. The companies will offer a follow-up webinar of the event on September 1.
