Your educational needs are paramount to SAMPE and we have valuable workshops that  address your learning objectives.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Additive Manufacturing -- more than just "3D Printing", provides attendees with a broader understanding 
  • SAMPE "hands-on" workshops provide more than just listening to lectures
  • Technologies covered in this course by leaders in the field from "metals-to-polymers-to-composites"
  • Networking with a broad group of attendees, speakers and researchers available nowhere else
  • Nothing like a "hands-on" experience working with real AM equipment and materials to lock it down
  • Small class sizes provide individual and team learning experiences
  • On-site and off-site tours expand the experience to real manufacturing shops
  • Design and print your own part -- learn from your success or failure in performing a unique AM process


DAY 1: 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

  • General State-of-the-Art overview of "Additive Manufacturing" -- metals, polymers, etc.
  • Hands-on examples of Additive Manufacturing for tooling where costs are significantly reduced
  • Examples of tooling for vacuum forming, plastic injection and metal forming -- improved cost, delivery time
  • DLP Additive Manufacturing technology and Figure Four machine capability
  • GE's Additive perspective within the industry today and into the future
  • 1:45 - 4:30 PM - Tour of BasTech AM facility
  • Summary discussions of day's events and plans for DAY 2 "hands-on workshop" activities

What Attendees are Saying about SAMPE Workshops

The SAMPE workshop was a real winner. For me, the combination of expert advice and hands-on activities just can’t be beat. If you’re involved in composites manufacturing, it’s money very well spent.”

- Daren Davis, Tarleton State University

“Being able to come and see what different products are out there as well as gaining hands on experience is very beneficial. It allows me to understand what people on the shop floor are going to be dealing with and how I can design parts and processes to better help them.”

- Ryan Dick, Lockheed Martin

“Thank you very much for the informative sessions.. There were many positive takeaways that I will be able to draw from in the course of my career going forward and it is professionals such as yourself that contribute favorably to successes in the composites industry.”

- Dennis Williams, Axson Technologies and Sika Corporation
