Future Manufacturing Forum AM Seminar 3D Sourcing - CASiM2

Wednesday 30th April 2014

Manufacturers in the Midlands, thanks to the ERDF funded CASIM² project, will be among the first to embrace new 3D digital catalogues, which instantly and automatically match buyers with component suppliers. Simply by uploading a 3D model of an industrial part online, buyers can search globally for the exact and near exact components they need, based on their geometry.

Free to attend, the Future Manufacturing Forum Seminar on 30 April 2014 at the MTC, Ansty will demonstrate how companies would be able to benefit from creating 3D digital catalogues and becoming ‘3D Searchable' on the web. Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of Cadenas GmbH, Europe's leading industrial 3D cataloging firm, will be speaking alongside Seena Rejal, CEO of 3D Industries Ltd, the UK-based leader in 3D component search engines, to explain how cutting edge 3D visualisation and modelling tools are revolutionising the way the global manufacturing supply chain works, making the buying and selling of components more rapid, efficient and profitable.

"3D Sourcing is rapidly changing the way manufacturers do business overseas," explains Sam Clarke, CASiM² Business Engagement Manager at Coventry' Manufacturing Technology Centre, "so it's imperative that component manufacturers make sure their products are ‘3D Searchable' in order to access the global marketplace. In the Midlands we have a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises which could be eligible for funding to create 3D catalogue, making this an affordable and lucrative opportunity. That's why the CASIM² project is hosting a Future Manufacturing Forum Seminar on this topic in order to make sure our manufacturing community is the first in line to benefit."

Delegates will learn how to create a 3D catalogue and discover how they can help generate sales leads and reduce operating costs. Companies will also learn how to access CASiM² support and additional funding for cataloguing and have the opportunity to tour the Manufacturing Technology Centre's cutting edge workshops.
