Considerations When Integrating Additive Manufacturing into Aerospace and Ground Vehicle Development and Production Environments

Thu, Aug 16, 2018 1:03 PM EDT{LOCAL_TZ}, 58 mins

Join SAE International, Lockheed Martin, MIT, and LAI International to discuss integrating additive manufacturing into aerospace and ground vehicle applications:

  • Key business and technical considerations on adopting additive manufacturing into development or production.
  • Considerations when supplying additive manufactured products to the ground vehicle and aerospace industries.
  • Newly released aerospace standards on additive manufacturing and why they matter.

Audra Ziegenfuss

SAE International
Audra Ziegenfuss started her career in bioimaging doing research in light microscopy and image analysis at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School at the Center for Biologic Imaging with Dr. Simon Watkins, PhD.  Following her tenure at the Center for Biologic Imaging, Audra then led the imaging group at the Diabetes Institute, part of Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, under the guidance of Dr. Massimo Trucco, M.D., PhD.  She then applied her imaging background in the development and commercialization of high throughput imaging instrumentation and software for the pharmaceutical, consumer goods, and research industries during her tenure at Thermo Fisher Scientific.Today, Ms. Ziegenfuss applies her technology background and commercialization of emerging technologies in the aerospace industry as she develops novel approaches to integrating aerospace standards and information products into customer workflows.
