These services are also very helpful for comparing materials and parts produced by 3D technologies with those manufactured by traditional methods. Materials Testing can provide crucial information about the following:

- Material composition; trace elements and impurities
- Measure of apparent density
- Mechanical properties and results of heat treat upgrade
- Microscopic product features
- Flaws and discontinuities
- Corrosion susceptibility

Eric Baum, Business Development Manager, said, “We had a great experience last year attending Rapid 2016 and are looking forward to this year’s event in Pittsburgh. With our strong reputation and roots in the Aerospace, Automotive and Medical markets, LTI is well-equipped and positioned to grow with the technological and capacity demands of the Additive Manufacturing industry.”

The Rapid + TCT Conference & Exposition will feature a three-day trade show, workshops, tech briefings, student tours and networking. The newest products, technologies, and materials in 3D printing, additive manufacturing, 3D scanning, CAD/CAE, metrology and inspection technologies will be showcased. Attendees have the opportunity to engage with nearly 200 exhibitors and explore the future of the industry through interactive experiences and keynotes from industry leaders. The event has been held for over 25 years and is being produced this year by SME and The TCT Group.
