Join us on March 22 for an exclusive webinar with advanced metal additive manufacturing specialist Velo3D and its client Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Technology GmbH (SBOT), one of the oil and gas industry’s leading contractors. 3dpbm co-founder and CEO Davide Sher will host a discussion and presentation by executives and engineers from Velo3D and SBOT.
The Challenges Contractors Face Today
Contract Manufacturers (CMs) face a unique hurdle when trying to expand their business and enter new markets. This is because CMs tend to be equipped to meet the needs of their existing customers for the production of specific parts. Expansion is therefore usually driven by growing customer needs, which does not encourage CMs to enter new markets and customer bases on their own.
Advanced metal additive manufacturing could change all that. As we will see in the next webinar, Velo3D’s end-to-end metal additive manufacturing solution and unique selling model, tailored to CMs and OEMs, enables customers like SBOT to grow and pursue new industries. , such as space, aviation and emerging energies. Specifically, the California-based AM company works closely with contract manufacturers, creating some of the demand for their networks for free. Velo3D’s sales engineers are also on hand to provide CMs and OEMs with training and support to get the most out of their metal additive manufacturing and capabilities.
