To address growing supply chain pressures, manufacturers are turning to Additive Manufacturing (AM) to create quality, cost-efficient products faster. Plastic thermoforming companies like Duo Form have discovered how to leverage large-format extrusion 3D printing using low-cost plastic pellets to gain a competitive edge. They are producing medium-to-large-sized thermoforming molds in less than half the time, and at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional mold-making methods.
Join engineering and business experts from 3D Systems and Duo Form as we dive deep into the integration that has made pellet-extrusion AM so beneficial for Duo Form, and how you can reap the same benefits in your own thermoforming processes.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
Brad Mount is a 25-year veteran of additive manufacturing, including multiple plastic and metal AM solutions. Brad, as a technology sales and operations executive, has worked with hundreds of companies, enabling their successful adoption of additive manufacturing to address specific business, engineering, and manufacturing challenges. He now leads 3D Systems - Titan business development as Global Director.
Clay Guillory is a mechanical engineer with extensive experience in additive manufacturing, pellet extrusion 3D printing and CNC machining. Clay founded Titan Robotics in 2014, specializing in large-format 3D printer manufacturing and launching the Titan pellet extrusion and hybrid additive and subtractive systems. After the acquisition of Titan Robotics by 3D Systems in April 2022, Clay now leads the Titan branch of 3D Systems' Application Innovation Group, expanding and developing new solutions for production additive manufacturing for industrial customers.
Dave Rheinheimer has 40 years of experience in thermoforming, working in all aspects of the industry including sales, production, product design, operations management, mold shop management and more. Throughout his career, Dave’s focus has been on improving designs and processing of thermoformed tooling and parts. Dave started his own thermoforming company, Majestic Formed Plastics, which was acquired by Duo Form in 2009. Dave currently leads the development of new products and improved products at Duo Form.
Bernardino Pecina is a robotics programmer and CAD engineer at Duo Form with 10 years of experience in the thermoforming industry. With three years of experience working with 3D printers and five years in tool and mold making, Nino currently operates the Titan pellet extrusion 3D printer at Duo Form to 3D print large molds and other parts as part of Duo Form's manufacturing process.
