Presentation Establishes Convergence of Additive Manufacturing and Industrial IoT Applications
Albuquerque, New Mexico. 24 May 2017: Optomec, a leading global supplier of production grade additive manufacturing systems for 3D printed metals and 3D printed electronics, today announced that its President and CEO, Dave Ramahi, will give a presentation titled “Printing 3D Sensors and Antennas Directly onto Products” at the LiveWorx Technology conference in Boston, MA. Optomec additive manufacturing solutions are used in production today to print strain gauges that collect mechanical deformation data for condition based maintenance, establishing the convergence of 3D printing and IoT applications. LiveWorx 2017, a global technology conference driving solutions engineered for a smart connected world, will introduce an unbeatable lineup of the world’s most inspiring leaders, thinkers and industry trailblazers.
Mr. Ramahi’s presentation will take place at 11:30 am on May 25, in the Internet of Things track. Ramahi will discuss how Optomec’s Aerosol Jet system can directly print sensors and antennas onto existing 3D structures, or be used to more tightly package traditional discrete sensors and antenna in a 3D setting. This enables production of Smart Products that are an essential building block for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet applications. Optomec’s Direct Write 3D printing technology improves upon legacy discrete sensor & antenna production methods, which are generally 2D, and fail to optimize for cost, size, weight and performance when adapted to 3D products. Mr. Ramahi will also share how Optomec is developing sets of generic sensor and antenna reference libraries to help speed the adoption of Smart Product solutions.
The LiveWorx premier technology conference offers a year’s worth of knowledge and skill-building content in less than a week. State-of-the-art companies will have leading product experts on-hand to help solve technical issues and showcase hundreds of software applications as well as solutions. LiveWorx will feature 200+ breakouts covering critical industry topics. The conference also offers cutting-edge use cases, live demonstrations and deep-dive technical lectures. The event will equip attendees with the capacity to enhance professional expertise and outthink the needs of the competition. For more information on the conference, click here.
