Register for our webinar and our metal AM experts will share their valuable insights based on their extensive additive subtractive manufacturing knowhow. Insights include:

• How are gases used in metal additive manufacturing
• How proper gas selection and supply affect your costs
• Impact of gas purity on part oxygen uptake and part quality
• How part build costs can be lowered in your manufacturing operation
• Lower cost by recycling and reusing Argon gas
• Why DED produces higher quality repairs than other techniques
• Why processes with controlled atmospheres produce better metallurgy
• How hybrid DED can drastically reduce repair cost and processing time 
• See examples of real DED repair applications in production



Rick Kowey: Executive Vice President, Matheson

As Executive Vice President, Advanced Technologies Group (ATG) & Corporate Liaison for MATHESON, Rick Kowey currently has business leadership responsibility for advanced gas-based technologies and innovations.  A primary focus of ATG is the metal additive manufacturing application in which MATHESON and its parent company Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation (TNSC), are actively working to lower metal AM build cost and improve part quality using their decades of knowhow in metal welding and fabrication technology.

Tom Cobbs: LENS Product Manager, Optomec

Tom Cobbs is the LENS Product Manager at Optomec in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received his B.S. in Welding Engineering from the Ohio State University in 2005. Tom’s early career was as a welding engineer in subsea exploration and production in the upstream oil and gas industry. He has now turned his focus and interests on metal additive manufacturing with Optomec whose systems utilize the LENS (laser engineered net shaping) process, also known as directed energy deposition.
