Velo3D, Inc. (NYSE: VLD), a leading metal additive manufacturing technology company for mission-critical parts, today announced its 2023 roadshow, the Proof is in the Printing Additive Manufacturing Tour, which will visit eight cities across the U.S. The tour builds on Velo3D’s previous roadshow series that brought together more than 400 engineers around the U.S. to learn about how metal additive manufacturing can help them transform their businesses.
“Over the past year, we’ve heard a lot of skepticism about whether metal additive manufacturing can truly deliver consistency at scale across different machines without extensive requalification,” said Renette Youssef, Velo3D Chief Marketing Officer. “This year’s roadshows will focus on sharing real-world examples of companies that have qualified parts for production use-cases and achieved scalability across different 3D printers to create distributed supply chains. The events are a great way to learn about 3D printing and network with other engineers who are exploring the same technology.”
Velo3D piloted its roadshow program in 2021. Each roadshow is a half-day event that includes presentations from Velo3D leadership team members, partners, and customers.
By attending, engineers can hear how their peers are utilizing metal additive manufacturing to produce parts and qualify them for use by utilizing the Velo3D fully integrated additive manufacturing solution. Presentations will also discuss how to optimize the additive manufacturing process to produce more performant parts and increase throughput.
Tour dates have been scheduled for the following cities:
· Phoenix, AZ: March 29, 2023
· Denver, CO: April 27, 2023
· Houston, TX: May 17, 2023
· Jupiter, FL: June 15, 2023
· Long Beach, CA: August 17, 2023
· Detroit, MI: September 20, 2023
· Fremont, CA: October 19, 2023
· Cincinnati, OH: November 2023
Dates will be announced for roadshow events in Europe and Asia. Velo3D’s distribution partner GoEngineer will also host a roadshow in Albuquerque, NM.
“If you have struggled to go into production with high- quality, additively manufactured metal parts, this roadshow lays down the groundwork to speed up and simplify the process,” said Josh Brown, GoEngineer Director of Metal AM. “Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to utilize metal additive manufacturing for their mission-critical parts and qualify them for production use.”
Velo3D is a metal 3D printing technology company. 3D printing—also known as additive manufacturing (AM)—has a unique ability to improve the way high-value metal parts are built. However, legacy metal AM has been greatly limited in its capabilities since its invention almost 30 years ago. This has prevented the technology from being used to create the most valuable and impactful parts, restricting its use to specific niches where the limitations were acceptable.
Velo3D has overcome these limitations so engineers can design and print the parts they want. The company’s solution unlocks a wide breadth of design freedom and enables customers in space exploration, aviation, power generation, energy, and semiconductor to innovate the future in their respective industries. Using Velo3D, these customers can now build mission-critical metal parts that were previously impossible to manufacture.
