How Multi-Materials Will Transform Additive Manufacturing

Dr. Behrang Poorganji (Head of Materials Development, GE Additive)

Location: 208B

Date: Tuesday, February 5

Time: 10:15am - 11:00am

Track: 3D Printing Innovation Summit

Vault Recording: TBD

For additive manufacturing to maintain its status as an industry game-changer, it will need to print multiple materials cheaper, faster, and with greater efficiency. This session will explain why multi-material 3D printing — in the form of plastics, metals, powder, and even electronics — is valuable, as well as ways to successfully implement it. It will also answer the questions:

  • What are the design benefits of using multi-materials?
  • What are their capabilities?
  • What products can be produced using multi-materials?
  • And for which applications?
