London, England – January 23, 2020 – Senvol President Zach Simkin, along with other additive manufacturing (AM) industry experts, was recently asked to predict what the upcoming year (2020) will hold for the industry. Those interviewed for the exclusive 3D Printing Industry article include Simkin, Marie Langer (CEO, EOS), Terry Wohlers (President, Wohlers Associates), Naresh Shanker (CTO, Xerox), Vyomesh Joshi (President & CEO, 3D Systems), and Bart Van der Schueren (CTO, Materialise), among others.
In the article, Simkin states, “In 2020, I predict that the use of in-situ monitoring data will start to become more prevalent. We are already starting to see more sensors being deployed within machines, which is great. In 2020, I expect that organizations will start to make better use of the increasing amounts of sensor data to assist in areas such as qualification and certification, quality control, and feedback/feed-forward controls.”
Simkin continues, “I also hope that a common data dictionary for additive manufacturing will be published in 2020. NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology), along with Penn State University, are currently leading a very productive and active working group focused on this topic. It is an area of great need, and one that I hope will see much progress in 2020.”
Simkin was also asked to make his predictions for the upcoming decade, which was published in a separate article.
3D Printing Industry, referred to as the “Authority on 3D Printing,” is a global media company providing a dedicated resource for anyone interested in additive manufacturing.
