Troy, MI (March 21, 2011
- FISHER/UNITECH, exclusive provider of Stratasys FDM 3D Production Systems, will exhibit in a Direct Part Manufacturing Workshop, March 29-30, 2011. The workshop is sponsored by the Midwest Chapter of SAMPE (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering,) and will be held at Wright State University, Fairborn, Ohio.
This two-day workshop will feature the latest trends and technologies for direct part manufacturing (DPM) for the military, aerospace and other high-performance industries. DPM is the process of going directly from an electronic representation of a part (CAD model) to the final product via additive manufacturing.
FISHER/UNITECH provides the full line of Stratasys FDM systems, offering advanced capabilities to produce very large complex parts for production. Companies using a Fortus FDM system for DPM save time making jigs, fixtures and production parts by reducing their assembly tool manufacturing time 50-85%. Fortus systems are used for DPM in low volume production, complex part design, and for bridge tooling or bridge-to-manufacturing scenarios. Companies like Akaishi, Digital Mechanics, BMW, Diebold, and ScriptPro save money manufacturing parts with a Fortus FDM machine.
Wright State University will host a tour of its Micro Air Vehicle Laboratory, which employs DPM to fabricate parts for its aircraft.
