Decentralizing production through additive manufacturing can bring numerous benefits, but these can only be realized through trust. VeriTX is building a platform to secure a trusted digital supply chain for aerospace and beyond.
The widespread outsourcing of large machine castings led a collaborative team at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to tackle the machine tool supply chain. The first step? 3D print the largest cast component.

Succeeding with additive manufacturing requires enterprise-wide buy-in and change. EOS describes tactics including a two-team structure: transformation team and implementation team.
Join HP to learn how 3D printing will impact supply chain transformation and realign values within ecosystems for years after the pandemic. Watch AM In-Depth, Sept. 30 at 1:00 p.m. EDT. (Add to MySpark Planner.)
TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is the key tool to objectively compare alternative sources to determine which items can be most profitably sourced domestically and which to offshore. Register today!
In the second webinar in this series, Harry will, in detail, demonstrate that shorter supply chains are also more profitable for OEMs for 20 to 40% of products. Register today!
Additive manufacturing promises to affect far more than manufacturing alone. When evaluating AM, the perspective needed is the view that sees the impacts all across the enterprise.
