This panel discussion, presented by EWI Advisory Services, will examine two emerging technology innovations in manufacturing, the Internet of Things and advanced automation. Dominic Myers, EWI Innovation Advisory Director, and Dhaval Sahija, Enterprise Solutions Manager for Softweb Solutions (an Avnet Company), will discuss how these game-changing forces will come together to form the factories of the future.
- Evaluating the Feasibility of 3D-printed Parts for Medical Pressure-related Devices
Wednesday, February 24, 2021, 12:00-12:45pm EST
Early in the COVID pandemic, critical life support machines were in high demand and short supply. Hospitals, especially in remote locations, had difficulty obtaining needed parts for ventilators. To help address this crisis, EWI conducted a rapid project to determine the feasibility of using 3D-printed parts to meet demand in the short term near the point of care. EWI Senior Technology Leader Jeff Ellis and ASTM AM Center of Excellence Director Dan Kowalik will share EWI’s successful results and other potential applications. Lewis Crenhsaw, an FDA EUA submission specialist from TC Medical, will also share tips on requirements and emergency filings.
