Growth Opportunites in Additive Manufacturing Throughout Northeast Ohio

Published in: Education
  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐.

  4. 4. Growth Opportunity for NE Ohio: Tooling & Fixtures is Key Short Term Opportunity  Interviewed 20+ parts & tooling manufacturers in NE Ohio  Prototyping remains the most common use of AM for design visualization  Identified 14 use cases where AM can provide significant economic value creation  Tooling & fixture examples in NE Ohio: • Production of mold inserts for tire molding to enable design complexity • Blow molding tooling to reduce design cost • Fixtures for window profile welding to reduce reject rate • Thermoset mold inserts for redesign cost reductions • Low cost thermoset mold tooling to allow capture of low volume production • Lower cost inspection fixtures for pumps • Low cost fixtures for metal stamping • Low cost FDM printed inserts for low volume trial of thermoplastic injection mold redesign 4 Barriers to Adoption  Many clients see the value in 3DP, but cannot sustain the technology internally for a variety of reason • Operationalizing 3DP requires investment in development • Lack of understanding • Capital investment in immature systems • Technical issues remain
  5. 5. NE Ohio Market Opportunity for Tooling and Part Production is Substantial  Tooling is the near term for growth opportunity, and parts production as a longer term opportunity  NEO’s strength in plastics and metals fabrication provides significant economic opportunity from adoption of AM for tooling applications in the short term and part production longer term 3 Costs and Effectiveness of Additive Manufacturing, NIST, Dec. 2014 4 Data from FirstResearch 5,6Data from Mergent Intellect 7 Data from Congressional Research Service $730B4 $63B5 $17B6 Obtainable Market Total U.S. Market for plastics manufacturing, metal fabrication and polymer materials industries NEO Total Addressable Market for plastics manufacturing, metal fabrication and polymer materials industries NEO Available Market: Specific segments of the NEO plastics manufacturing, metal fabrication and polymer materials industries identified by the Project Team as having a good opportunity for economic impact Portion of the Available Market that can realistically be penetrated by additive manufacturing. A recent study sized the US AM tooling opportunity at $8.8B in 2020. Ohio is 2nd in the US in tool, die & mold output with ~12% share7. We estimate a market potential of >$1B for AM tooling production in Ohio by 2020 5
  6. 6. Growth Opportunity for NE Ohio: Direct Part Production Holds Promise for Long Term Growth  60% growth rate in direct production compared to 30% overall growth rate  Two fastest growing market segments globally are aerospace and biomedical devices • Boeing and Airbus using hundreds of parts for weight reduction, design complexity, cost savings • Custom hearing aid ear molds and custom fit cases/ Invisalign molds for dental braces  Tech Belt use cases in aerospace: • Alcoa and GE both produce laser sintered aerospace components • Alcoa reported to us wide use in soft tooling, fixtures, prototype tooling for mold core casting, and even steel tooling that enabled significant part consolidation  Regional use cases in biomedical: • QED uses FDM in production of low volume MRI coil enclosures • Osteosymbionics produces cranio-facial implants via AM • Cleveland Clinic uses AM for patient-specific tissue modeling and pre- surgical planning 6 Barriers to Adoption • Aerospace Tier 1s cannot afford to risk use of subs for mission critical parts • AM has too much variation to allow use of service bureaus • Customers do not understand AM design rules – unrealistic expectations • Closed material models by system suppliers stifle design growth • Material availability limits growth in biomedical uses • Use in large volume markets like automotive requires improvements in cost and productivity
  7. 7. Materials is a “Legacy Strength” in Northeast Ohio • 4X the Concentration of Materials Suppliers than US Average • More than 50% of Ohio’s Materials Jobs Located in the Region World Class Research Institutes including • Case Western Reserve University – Macromolecular Science • University of Akron – Polymer Science & Engineering • Youngstown State University - Materials Science NE Ohio AM materials capability is mostly in polymers • Village Plastics (Norton) acquired by 3D Systems to produce filament • Other filament makers in Chesterland, Youngstown, Brecksville (Lubrizol) • New open source machines may provide more potential for market entry AM metal powder capacity in Tech Belt • Alcoa, Carpenter, Puris, Additive Metal Alloys Growth Opportunity for NE Ohio: Materials Global Addressable Market $768M in 2015, up 20% from 2014  Polymers represent $550M, up 20% over 2014  Metals reached $88M, an 80% growth rate over 2014  Growth was largely driven by aerospace and bioscience 7 Market Barriers  “Closed Systems” between OEMs and Suppliers  Market Knowledge  Existing Patent Restrictions Wohlers
  8. 8. 8 Growth Opportunity for NE Ohio: R&D and Engineering Design Assets  Understanding of design and engineering strategies for AM was identified as one of the most critically needed skill sets for industry  NE Ohio is home to strong design assets  The region has a history of creating strong engineering talent and currently is well- positioned to support the specialized skills required for AM.  Emphasis should be placed on attraction/retention of industrial design centers to keep NEO-trained talent in the region NE Ohio is home to some of the nation’s leading programs supporting research and education in AM:  YSU  America Makes  Case Western Reserve University  University of Akron NE Ohio is home to strong AM workforce development programs:  Cuyahoga Community College  Lorain County Community College  Stark State  Cleveland State The broader TechBelt region boasts the additional strength of Carnegie Mellon, Pitt, Penn State and Robert Morris Universities
