If integrating or optimizing additive manufacturing processes in your company’s operations is important to you, then you want to spend some time with Frank Medina, Additive Manufacturing Technology Leader at EWI. Frank directs a team of solution-focused AM experts who work to help manufacturers with technical and innovation challenges in six primary areas: material/process development, process sensing and control, post process inspection, advancing additive manufacturing processes/machines, supporting property database generation, and design for additive manufacturing. Frank’s – and EWI’s – goal is to help your organization benefit from broader adoption of metals additive manufacturing by industry through the development, demonstration, and innovation of critical technologies along the AM process chain.
Finding Frank in your part of the country is going to be easy this spring, as he will be speaking and teaching at several professional conferences and meetings. Look for his presentations at the following events:
