Velo3D’s “Proof is in the Printing” roadshow to reach eight US cities
The 2023 additive manufacturing tour will highlight how engineers can achieve repeatable outcomes in real-world environments and qualify parts for production
Velo3D has announced the details for its 2023 roadshow, the Proof is in the Printing Additive Manufacturing Tour, which will visit eight cities across the US. The tour builds on Velo3D’s previous roadshow series that brought together more than 400 engineers around the US to learn about how metal additive manufacturing can help them transform their businesses.
“Over the past year, we’ve heard a lot of scepticism about whether metal additive manufacturing can truly deliver consistency at scale across different machines without extensive requalification,” said Renette Youssef, Chief Marketing Officer at Velo3D. “This year’s roadshows will focus on sharing real-world examples of companies that have qualified parts for production use cases and achieved scalability across different 3D printers to create distributed supply chains. The events are a great way to learn about 3D printing and network with other engineers who are exploring the same technology.”
Velo3D piloted its roadshow program in 2021. Each roadshow is a half-day event that includes presentations from Velo3D leadership team members, partners, and customers.
Attendees can hear how engineers are utilizing metal additive manufacturing to produce parts and qualify them for use by utilizing the Velo3D fully integrated additive manufacturing solution. Presentations will also discuss how to optimize the additive manufacturing process to produce more performant parts and increase throughput.
Tour dates for “Proof is in the Printing” have been scheduled for the following cities: Phoenix, AZ (March 29, 2023); Denver, CO (April 27, 2023); Houston, TX (May 17, 2023); Jupiter, FL (June 15, 2023); Long Beach, CA (August 17, 2023); Detroit, MI (September 20, 2023); Fremont, CA (October 19, 2023); Cincinnati, OH (November 2023).
Dates will be announced for roadshow events in Europe and Asia. Velo3D’s distribution partner GoEngineer will also host a roadshow in Albuquerque, NM.
“If you have struggled to go into production with high-quality, additively manufactured metal parts, this roadshow lays down the groundwork to speed up and simplify the process,” said Josh Brown, Director of Metal AM at GoEngineer. “Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to utilize metal additive manufacturing for their mission-critical parts and qualify them for production use.”
