Presentation: 3D Printing & Optics

The experts at PADT are often asked to speak at conferences around the country, even around the world. This is a great opportunity for us to present what we do and share what we know. The downside is that we only reach the people in the room. The solve this, we are going back and presenting past live seminars at our desks and recording them on BrightTalk. This is the third of those recordings. To find others go to our BrightTalk Channel

The world of optical systems is a subset of mechanical engineering with unique needs and requirements. Those unique needs also make it an ideal area to apply Additive Manufacturing, also known as 3D Printing.

This is a presentation that we gave at Photonics Days, held at the University of Arizona in Tucson Arizona from January 30th through February 1st of 2019.

May Events in Review

We attended a lot of events in May where we learned a ton, and continued to grow our network.


iot-world-picPatrick Barnett and Eric Miller ventured out to the heart of the Silicon Valley to attend Internet of Things World 2016.  We learned a ton and met a couple of potential suppliers. Learn more about what we learned on our IoT page: www.padtinc.com/iot


 


rapid-2016The big, huge, important event for the month was RAPID in Orlando, FL.   PADT’s Rey Chu and Dhruv Bhate attended, and Dhruv presented.  The highlight of the show was seeing all the new products that were introduced, especially from Stratasys. We were also able to catch up with old friends and make some new ones.



sbir-conf-2016-picThe most informative event of the month was the National SBIR/STTR Conference.  PADT’s Rob Rowan flew to our nation’s capital and was able to meet with many of the people who are in charge of the SBIR projects we are bidding on.  Rob felt that the best part was getting to better know what our customers are really looking for.
