3D printing is revolutionizing the process of casting for parts by completely bypassing the requirements of hard tooling and the associated geometry constraints. 3D sand printing by ExOne provides 3D printed molds and mold components that can be poured with gray or ductile iron in ideal part geometry with tight tolerances. 3D printed molds do not require draft and can be printed with undercuts and other part geometry otherwise impossible with molds made from hard tooling.

It’s important for Oklahoma manufacturers* to understand the changing landscape of advanced production. Join us for this quick and informative overview with top international experts.

*Also Important for those that purchase casting and forging machined products.

Presenters Include

An Oklahoma native, Murphy attended Northern Oklahoma College for 3D Animation and Video Editing. He has been in rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing since 2002. Starting with Z Corporation, which was later purchased by 3D Systems and Linear Mold and Engineering, he now works for Moog Inc.’s Aircraft Group as an additive manufacturing operations coordinator. Having grown into an additive manufacturing expert he provides technical support, training, 3D design /CAD data, engineering/design support and model validation across a variety of industries including aerospace, defense, oil and gas, medical and industrial.

Rhett is a degreed mechanical engineer from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His career has spanned engineering technology including more than 30 years in MCAD, PLM and additive. In additive, Howard served roles in product manager for Z Corporation’s Z Cast product that was Z Corp’s non-ferrous foundry refractory material. At Stratasys, he was regional manager for East Coast pre and post sales operations including the Northeast Demo Center and applications team. At Viridis3D, he serves a multitude of roles for a technology that promises to advance additive in the sand casting foundry direct.

A native of New York, Fowler attended college at the Pennsylvania State University where he earned a degree in materials science and engineering. He was hired as a civilian engineer by Tinker Air Force Base and while working for the Air Force, he completed his master’s degree in metallurgical and materials engineering. He has worked in the Propulsion Maintenance Group and the Metallurgical Analysis Laboratory, where he was a lead engineer. Currently, he works in the Reverse Engineering and Critical Tooling (REACT) lab in the Commodities Maintenance Group. Established in 2014, Reverse Engineering and Critical Tooling acts as an engineering focal point for organic manufacturing, reverse engineering and additive manufacturing. REACT currently has various, cutting-edge 3D printing and scanning technologies, along with comprehensive software suites allowing the 16 engineers the ability to support the warfighter in a quick and cost-effective manner.

Greil is vice president for workforce development at Rose State College. He is a U.S. Air Force veteran and honorary AWACS Commander and played a pivotal role in the reinstatement of the Rose State College Small Business Development Center (SBDC.) Since its reinstatement in 2012, the Center has provided assistance to small businesses through programs and workshops such as the Rose State College SBDC Veterans’ Conference, a free event for veterans who are looking to start or grow a business. Greil maintains working relationships with Tinker Air Force Base by facilitating the Tinker Air Force Partnership in the Professional Training Center at Rose State College and advocating veteran-owned small businesses with the Tinker AFB Transition Assistance Program, in which those leaving the military can train for work after their service.
