In-Person Conference Tracks
The emergence of additive manufacturing, augmented reality and virtual reality and sophisticated CAD/CAM software give designers and manufacturers a deeper insight into how to turn ideas into products. A modern, connected plant requires the individual components to deliver a single vision of the operation. This requires a network that connects innovative technologies such as 3D printers, CAD/CAM software and sensors. It also allows designers to optimize their designs and shorten the time to market. Produced by Machine Design.
