SPECIAL OFFER: Join the 3D Printing Technology Revolution
In recent years, 3D printing technology has taken off on a global level, with the potential to change the face of manufacturing as we know it.
Using an additive manufacturing process, 3D printing technology is able to create 3D objects by adding layer-upon-layer of material, no matter how intricate, even moving parts. It is being used to manufacture almost anything you can think of, from high-tech specialised parts for aviation and end-use parts for the automotive industry to custom-made biomedical prostheses such as hip joints.
What do local tool manufacturing companies want from TASA Gauteng?
To answer that question, TASA Gauteng is embarking on a new venture to gain valuable insight into the current challenges and opportunities of the tooling industry and in so doing, understand how we can better serve our members and effect positive change in their business. The initiative will take on the form of designated Focus Group Sessions in which toolmakers will be able to share their thoughts, opinions and needs, thereby allowing us to gather qualitative information and actionable insights.
