3D Printing is not just a buzz phrase, but a true force in how the global supply chain is being restructured.  Cullen Hilkene, CEO of 3Diligent, will step through the evolution of manufacturing, with a particular emphasis on the step we are currently experiencing, Industry 4.0. Zooming in on the current state, he will explore the role 3D Printing currently has in the market and where it stands to have a bigger impact in the near future.  He’ll also highlight potential impacts of these developments on the lubricant manufacturing industry to better inform ILMA members and empower them to anticipate and profit from shifting industry dynamics.
