Testing and Inspecting 3D-Printed Parts

Available On Demand Until March 28, 2020

This one-hour Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International and Tech Briefs Media focuses on additive manufacturing technology and the 3D printing of production parts for industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, and medical.

As 3D printing becomes more commonplace, parts will require more advanced inspection, processing, and testing to ensure they meet requirements for structural strength and stability. Whether plastic or metal, 3D-printed production parts will be tasked with performing comparably to traditionally manufactured parts in certain applications.

Webinar topics include quality control measures, post-processing techniques, and recommendations for ensuring the safe and reliable performance of parts.

An audience Q&A is included.
