3DEO President Matt Sand to speak at MD&M West on metal 3D printing

Los Angeles, CA: February 7, 2020. With the explosive growth of medical device manufacturing, greater numbers of industry leaders are engaging more with metal additive manufacturing as a solution to gain speed to market and lower costs. 3DEO President Matt Sand has been invited to discuss how manufacturers can leverage metal 3D printing to bring products to market faster and for less at MD&M West – the world’s largest medical design & manufacturing event next week, February 11-13, 2020 in Anaheim, California.

A recognized expert in commercializing metal additive manufacturing (AM), Matt Sand will outline the key value and cost drivers for metal 3D printing, and share lessons and observations made during his career. He said customers consistently want to know three things about metal 3D printing: How much money it can save; the speed of development and production; and how much flexibility there is for making revisions quickly. Attendees will also hear how they can use their own experiences to successfully engage 3D printing for high-volume production.

“3D Printing will revolutionize the entire development and production cycle in the medical device arena. My goal for this seminar is to help manufacturers understand the pros and cons of this cutting-edge technology so they can make fully informed decisions on how to successfully implement metal AM,” Sand said.

In this session, highlights will include:

  • Current applications that are made possible with 3D printing
  • How to get started with metal 3D printing and avoid costly mistakes
  • Near-future possibilities — how to gain a competitive advantage
  • Long-term possibilities — why you need to be investing in 3D printing now or be left behind

Sand’s seminar titled, 3D Printing with Metal: Everything you ever Wanted to Know, will be held at MD&M in Booth #209B, Wednesday, February 11, at 2:05 – 3:00 PM. The session will be recorded and available for use after the conference.

3DEO is also an exhibitor at MD&M West, Booth #3183. The company sells high-precision metal 3D printed parts (but not printers). 3DEO’s breakthrough technology in metal 3D printing technology is ideal for serial production in the medical industry. Customers have reported 30-50% savings over parts made with CNC machining and metal injection molding (MIM).

3DEO’s breakthrough technology in metal 3D printing technology is ideal for serial production in the medical industry. Approximately 30% of their business is medical-oriented, with clients in medical devices, surgical robotics, and instrumentation. 3DEO seeks to help customers reimagine manufacturing with multiple advantages within small metal parts, including high levels of customization, on-demand manufacturing, no tooling costs, and extremely complex geometries.

About Additive Manufacturing

As stated above, additive manufacturing is becoming more and more common. As machines decrease in cost, they are more readily attainable. The scope of materials ­– from plastics to metals to ceramics – is also increasing, making additive manufacturing a highly sought-after technology. But despite the gains being made in the industry, adoption by many accounts has been slow but steady.

MD&M Panel to discuss the future of Additive Manufacturing

Looking at where the industry is heading, 3DEO’s president Matt Sand Sands joins experts from Stratasys and OffWhite Co., in a three-person Tech Talk Panel: Additive Manufacturing: The Slow & Steady March to Production, on Wednesday, February 12, 8:30 – 9:30 AM, at Booth 209B.

Topics in this session include:

  • How companies are breaking new ground
  • What role does BAAM (big area additive manufacturing) play in the industry?
  • How can the industry continue to move forward?
