uofu-mep-uammiIn partnership with Utah Technical Colleges, the University of Utah Manufacturing Extension Partnership (UUMEP) Center will bring free Metal Additive Manufacturing training to Utah.

Also known as Metal 3D Printing, this technology has been labeled as “disruptive” by many industry experts, and many local companies have reported that their competitors are investing in this technology, and see a great need to learn more about its benefits.

Developed by the University of Utah Mechanical Engineering Department in collaboration with the UUMEP Center and University of Utah Professional Education, the workshops will cover the importance of this technology, available equipment types, processes, and methods, challenges and benefits when adopting this technology, and discuss successful business cases associated with Metal 3D Printing.

Upon workshop completion, participants will have a better understanding of Metal 3D Printing and how they might use it to pivot their businesses, strengthen their position in the supply chain, and promote their company’s economic diversity and workforce resilience.

Workshops are scheduled throughout the next few months in various areas of the state:

  • June 21 at Ogden-Weber Technical College, Ogden, UT
  • June 29 at USTAR, Clearfield, UT
  • July 11 at University of Utah Sandy Center, Sandy, UT
