The Additive Manufacturing Workshop Series, presented by Modern Machine Shop and sister publication Additive Manufacturing magazine, offers focused, technical content on the industrial applications of additive technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts in your shop.

The inaugural workshop series will kick off at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) January 16 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. The workshop will cover technical content on how 3D-printing technology is shaking up auto manufacturing.

Presenters include Ford, Hackrod, Sodick, Siemens, Carbon, Desktop Metal and Renishaw. Topics focus on end-use part manufacture, production at scale, AM integration and more. Each session will feature case studies that demonstrate the successes and obstacles of 3D printing for production.

Registration includes access to the NAIAS Industry Preview, a $110 value. This unique networking and professional development opportunity brings together nearly 40,000 automotive professionals and analysts representing over 2,200 companies from around the world. They represent the key individuals responsible for the cutting-edge products, technologies and services on display at NAIAS.

“3D printing is becoming a larger part of the conversation on automotive production than ever before,” says Peter Zelinski, Editor-in-Chief of Additive Manufacturing magazine. “The Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Automotive at NAIAS is the best place to explore how additive manufacturing will affect the future of the car industry.”

  • Metal AM in a Machine Shop? Ask the Marines

    A hybrid system combining metal 3D printing with machining gives the Marine Corps perhaps its most effective resource yet for obtaining needed hardware in the field. It also offers an extreme version of the experience a machine shop might have in adding metal AM to its capabilities.

  • Conformal Cooling: A Tool in the Toolbox to Build a Better Mold

    Moldmakers are just starting to scratch the surface of what can be done with conformal cooling, which involves an additive approach.

  • The New Pattern for Prototyping

    Ford is building engineering confidence through nearly production-ready prototype parts, which provide reliable test data—all thanks to additive manufacturing.
