  • The Highest Standards, The Happiest Customers

    "Support throughout"
    From meeting Revathi who listened to my requirements, to then being introduced to Richard, discussing technical capabilities of various 3D printing technologies. The professional service and experience was seamless throughout.
    Rob Ellis | Director | Carbotech
    "Invaluable training"
    The training was well delivered and easy to understand. At the end I was provided with the tools necessary to not allow me to operate the machines safely but produce great parts.

What is Introduction to Additive Manufacturing training?

If you are looking to delve in to the world of Additive Manufacturing we understand that it can be quite daunting, especially with so many different technologies out there. This course will give you a basic understanding of each of the main technologies on the market with their pros and cons, as well as what materials you can use and typical applications for each of the technologies.


What are the benefits of Introduction to Additive Manufacturing training?

This course will give delegates an overall understanding of lots of different Additive Manufacturing technologies, rather than honing in on just the one. This gives you the broader knowledge when making important AM decisions for your business such as the right technology/3D printer fit for the job, or what materials to use in a certain application e.g metal form tooling. Although just a one day course, you will still come away with in-depth knowledge on the history of 3D printing and the 21st century reality of it too.
