Here at PADT we help people who make products, stuff that gets manufactured. So we focused our open house yesterday on advanced manufacturing and invited the community to come out and network, learn, and share. Even though it was a busy week for technology events in Arizona, we had a great turnout on a surprisingly cloudy Wednesday evening.
October is Manufacturing month and this open house was part of the Arizona Commerce Authority’s coordinated events to highlight manufacturing in Arizona. You can learn more about other events in the state here.
This event was a bit more casual and less structured then past PADT open houses, letting attendees spend more time one-on-one with various experts and dig deep in to technologies like metal 3D Printing, urethane casting, topological optimization, and scanning.
What struck all of us here was the keen interest in and knowledge about the various tools we were showing across a wide range of attendees. From students with home built 3D Printers to managers from local aerospace companies that are on the forefront of Additive Manufacturing, the questions that were asks and comments that were made with insightful and show a transition of this technology from hype to real world application.
Below are some more quick snapshot taken during the event.
A big thanks to everyone who made it out and we hope to see more of you next time.
