Stark Entrepreneurship Alliance is pleased to announce a joint meeting with Canton Joint Engineering Council (CJEC) societies. The evening will consist of a brief overview of SEA and a presentation on 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping by Tim Seifert, President of Seifert Technologies, Inc. In addition, we will have live demonstrations showing the 3D printing process and stations displaying solid modeling software used in this industry.

3D printing is the ultimate just-in-time method of manufacturing. Shifting from the 2D world to physical parts accelerates product development and lowers cost. 3D parts that you can touch and feel improve design communication, so you can make better decisions faster. Applications include design visualization, prototyping/CAD, metal casting, architecture, education, geospatial, healthcare and entertainment/retail. Besides rapid prototyping, 3D printing is also used for rapid manufacturing. Rapid manufacturing is a new method where companies are using 3D printers for short run custom parts. In this way of manufacturing, the printed objects are not prototypes but the actual end-user product.

Co-founder of Seifert Technologies, Tim Seifert holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Technology from the University of Akron. Tim is registered in the State of Ohio as a Professional Mechanical Engineer. He has served on many advisory boards including the Massillon Development Foundation, Stark Development Board, Society of Manufacturing Engineers Canton Chapter (SME), Stark State College of Technology, and the Massillon Chamber of Commerce and is also a member of ASME and AIST

This event is part of an ongoing speakers’ program by the Stark Entrepreneurship Alliance.
