Unpeeling the 3D Printing News

Joris Peels, our Executive Editor who also dons the hat of Vice President of Consulting at Additive Manufacturing Research (AMR), hosts a news livestream called ‘3D Printing News Unpeeled’ one or two times a week at 9:30 am EST. He uses each session, which lasts less than 20 minutes, to discuss what he regards as the top news stories of the week in the 3D printing industry, and why they matter. The stories he discusses are an intriguing mix of those covered by us at and other significant ones not featured by us. But they are all equally interesting and hold major implications.

March 25 – 28: An Encounter with Global Industrie Paris

This week in France, Global Industrie Paris will be held from March 25-28, with 40,000 visitors expected to attend this “meeting place for the whole industrial ecosystem.” 3,000 machines are expected to be operating on the show floor, with an expected 2,300 exhibitors, including Materialise, Quickparts, ABB, 3D Industries, and Dassault Systèmes. There are 15 zones of exhibition space, starting with additive manufacturing and 3D printing, as well as machining and material removal, robotics, electronics, and more.

“As a cornerstone in reindustrialization, Global Industrie symbolizes the commitment and pride of industrial players. A Showcase for Regions, know-how and the essential presence of industry in our everyday lives, it is above all a place to meet and do business for those who are shaping today’s and tomorrow’s industry, and an opportunity to show their fighting spirit.”

March 25: AM Coalition Members-Only Roundtable

On March 25th, a virtual roundtable organized by the AM Coalition will take place at 3 pm EST. The topic of discussion will be “Accelerate the Procurement and Fielding of Innovative Technologies (APFIT).” Initiated by the National Defense Authorization Act of FY22 via the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)), this pilot is a competitive, merit-based initiative for crucial yet underfunded warfighter-aimed products and technologies. Unlike the SBIR program, it is focused on procurement funding rather than research financing. At this event, attendees will learn about the APFIT program directly from Department of Defense employees involved in the procurement and acquisition process.

The APFIT pilot program aims to swiftly transition technologies into production and expedite the delivery of necessary technologies to the warfighter, with emphasis on those developed by small businesses and nontraditional defense contractors.

To join the exclusive roundtable, please RSVP here.
