TIPE 3D Printing, the additive manufacturing industry’s first virtual event with an all-female panel of speakers is preparing to launch in just a few weeks. The online conference, which will run from January 27 to 28, already has a host of high profile sponsors, including GE Additive, HP, TRUMPF, MatterHackers and Dassault Systèmes. Most recently, metal solutions specialist H.C. Starck Solutions has announced it is also sponsoring the AM event.
The sponsorship is not the only way that H.C. Starck will be involved in the upcoming conference, which is powered by Women in 3D Printing. Faith Oehlerking, an additive manufacturing R&D engineer at H.C. Starck will be participating in TIPE 3D Printing’s “Material Innovations” session on January 28, 2020. Specifically, she will be giving a presentation entitled “Optimizing Refractory Metals for Additive Manufacturing,” in which she will discuss H.C. Starck Solutions’ materials, methods, markets and research in the additive sector.
Other speakers at the event include Michelle Bockman, CEO of 3DPrinterOS, Jenny Chen, Founder and CEO of 3DHEALS, Sherry Handel, Executive Director of the Additive Manufacturer Green Trade Association, Jill Christner, President and GM of SLM Solutions NA, Alena Folger, Head of R&D at DyeMansion, Njideka Harry, Founder of 3D Printing Academy for Girls, Victoria Holt, President and CEO of Protolabs as well as many others. The full list of speakers can be found on TIPE 3D Printing’s website.
The two-day event will comprise over 40 presentations from these women and others, looking at their various areas of expertise in AM, including aerospace, medical, consumer, automotive, industrial and more. The presentations will be organized into four expert-driven tracks, Technology, Industry, People and Economics. Oehlerking’s presentation in the Material Innovations session will be part of the Technology track.
