EWI’s Barfoot Discusses Metal AM on Public Radio

September 19, 2019

Recently EWI Director of Additive Manufacturing Programs, Mark Barfoot, was featured on Exploradio, a program about scientific innovation produced at Kent State University’s WKSU. The conversation was broadcast following the Additive Manufacturing Cluster of Ohio 2019 conference held late last month near Cleveland, OH.

The program segment examined the impact of AM as a manufacturing technology and the ways in which it is changing the way products are made. Barfoot shared his views on how far the industry has come, and how new AM techniques are tipping the scales toward broader adoption of use in industrial fabrication. With metal AM, he said, “we’re moving into the meat and potatoes of actually making production parts.”
