On Wednesday, February 22nd, from 03.30 pm to 04.30 pm CET/ 09.30 am to 10.30 am New York Time, we sat down with Martin Stevens, Mechanical Engineering Manager at DB ESG and Anthony Mott, Global Additive Manufacturing Leader at Wabtec Corporation to discuss how their respective company goes beyond AM misconceptions and reshape their business with current advances in AM.
The panel marked the kick-off of the third season of the Additive Talks session, a series of panels we launched three years ago, to provide industrials and professionals across industries with insights that may help them better understand the technologies, its limitations as well as its opportunities in specific vertical industries.
Key questions discussed as part of this panel
This panel dedicated to AM in the railway industry discussed the current business model of Wabtec and DB ESG and the applications they are currently achieving with AM technologies. Stevens and Mott also exchanged on the different ways to foster “new AM processes” such as DED, WAAM; software solutions powered by AI that are currently making a lot of headlines and the cost consideration and the possible role they could play as final users.
Questions from the audience were related to AM Electronics in applications, certification of 3D printed parts as well as the respective goal of each company in terms of number of parts already printed.
