Revolutionary technologies industrialize 3D printing

Don’t miss Siemens PLM at IPC APEX EXPO 2018 , Tuesday, February 27 through Thursday, March 1, at the San Diego Convention Center, Exhibit Hall B2, Booth #2621.  Meet with Siemens experts and learn about new advancements in digital manufacturing technology.  Siemens PLM and Mentor help companies digitalize manufacturing and the process of turning innovative product ideas and raw materials into real products.

Visitors at IPC APEX EXPO will learn about the innovative technologies that we have to help electronics manufacturers digitalize manufacturing and realize innovation.

The 3D printing revolution is combining existing technologies with new innovations to modernize manufacturing. The result is that 3D printing technology is allowing companies to change not just what they make and how they make it, but also how they do business.
