About this Event

ABSTRACT:

Additive manufacturing (AM) represents a group of technologies and applications that are changing the way organizations think about design and manufacturing. Why should companies in New Zealand care about AM? Industry consultant, author, and speaker Terry Wohlers will address why you may want to consider the technology. AM products and services worldwide grew by 33.5% last year, according to Wohlers Report 2019, an annual study that many refer to as the “bible” of AM and has been published 24 consecutive years. Adoption of the technology continues to pick up steam, but is New Zealand prepared for its impact?
