SLM Solutions North America has signed a memorandum of understanding with The Barnes Group Advisors. The agreement includes the consultancy and the company working together to offer AM training and help potential customers feel more confident about investing in AM hardware.

SLM Solutions’ goal is to equip potential customers with the ability to make better informed purchasing decisions by ensuring that comprehensive training is available during the sales process, according to the company.

“Increasingly, we see the need to help contacts not only develop their application for the machine, but first develop their entire internal business case to take the investment leap into metal AM. By partnering our machine expertise with the industry leaders at The Barnes Group Advisors, we are able to lower the barrier to entry and shorten the learning curve for success with selective laser melting for our customers,” says Aaron LaLonde, director of applications engineering at SLM Solutions North America.

The Barnes Group Advisors will deliver AM training courses designed around key industry standards to SLM Solutions’ customers and contacts. The courses include: Discover AM, an essentials course; Focus AM, a technology and materials course; Accelerate AM, a design course; and Empower AM, a business and economics course. Custom class offerings on topics, including CT inspection and specialized metal powder training, will also be available for SLM Solutions’ current customers to offer an increased return on their investment and to further accelerate the adoption of new AM applications.
