EWI’s Samant discusses impact of AM with The Fabricator magazine

Additive manufacturing (AM) is the hottest new technology in manufacturing. Over the last 20 years, AM has moved out of the phase of experimentation into the realm of prototyping, and now it is an option for part production. Research and development, often conducted jointly by manufacturers, government, educational institutions, and not-for-profit organizations, has put AM on a fast track to becoming a viable process for applications beyond the aerospace and medical industries, which have been championing its development.

Rutuja SamantRutuja Samant, Applications Engineer at EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works in NY, recently shared her vision of what’s next for AM and how it may impact manufacturing with thefabricator.com.

How to Reduce Risk and Save Time When Implementing New Production Processes

Accelerating time-to-market is a goal for manufacturers across industries. But not every organization has staff resources with the technical expertise—or time—to make sure that the implementation of their new technologies and processes
goes as efficiently as possible.

amc

  • When they don’t have the expertise, they scramble to find someone who does and lose time in the process.
  • When they do have the expertise, they sacrifice months of their engineers’ time sending them on-site to the integrator’s facility and then to the production environment to troubleshoot processes until the final launch.

That’s where EWI comes in. We provide the expertise to expedite decision making and equipment implementation and the know-how to work through issues that come up during installation and validation with the integrator.

To find out how your organization can leverage our team to reduce the risk of lengthy delays and improve your time-to-market, take a look at our new overview, 7 Ways EWI Helps Reduce Risk and Expedite New Process Implementation.

View the overview

EWI’s comprehensive engineering services help companies identify, develop, and implement the best options for their specific applications, empowering industry leaders to overcome complex technology challenges and bring products to market quickly and efficiently.
