Why You Should Attend The Military Additive Manufacturing Summit
The Department of Defense is exploring innovative ways to provide Warfighters with the parts and supplies they need during an era of budget constraints, aging equipment, and growing international complexity. To further reduce acquisition and production costs, the US Government has invested a substantial amount of time, effort, and money into developing a potentially game-changing new industrial technology, known as additive manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing, or 3D Printing, has the potential to provide the US Military with the ability to drastically reduce the maintenance and sustainment costs of equipment, improve overall mission readiness, decrease the amount of storage needed for spare parts, and deliver increased operational flexibility to Warfighters in the deployed environment. Providing the US Military with the ability to manufacture parts on-demand not only strengthens military units’ ability to become more self-sufficient, it fundamentally transforms the defense industrial complex as we know it.
Join us for this year's Military Additive Manufacturing Summit as we discuss the opportunities and challenges that the DoD faces as it expands the role of additive manufacturing within the defense industrial enterprise.
