Thought Leadership

An introduction to industrial-scale additive manufacturing

By ToniB

Our first Thought Leadership podcast series is coming to a close, and we want to thank everyone who has taken the time to listen to our series and to share your feedback with us. We appreciate it!

This series has covered industrial-scale additive manufacturing and highlighted the potential of taking your business’s additive capabilities to the next level. Dean Haehnel, director of program marketing for the Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network, and Robert Meshel, director of the Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network initiative, guide listeners through each topic with interesting conversations about what’s possible when you completely change your products and your processes.

The four podcast episodes cover the hype and reality, as well as the risks and opportunities, of industrial-scale additive manufacturing (ISAM), jumpstarting industrial-scale additive manufacturing with the new Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network, and three initial use cases for ISAM.

We hope you listen to these four episodes, but if you only have a few minutes to spare, you can listen to this introductory episode. In this 6 ½ minute introduction, Dean provides listeners an overview of what’s discussed in each episode and prepares you to jump into the full podcast series.
