RAPID + TCT West is an organic extension of the RAPID + TCT brand and addresses the growing need for true coast-to-coast coverage of the latest additive manufacturing technologies, applications, and equipment options.
RAPID + TCT West will take place on the west coast annually, allowing the original RAPID + TCT event cater to the larger U.S. market. The first edition of RAPID + TCT West will take place in Santa Clara, Oct. 8-10, 2019. The biannual RAPID + TCT events will allow easier access to state-of-the-art additive manufacturing knowledge for East, West and Midwest communities alike.
In California alone, additive manufacturing is growing at a rate of approximately 25 percent per year, according to the 2018 Wohlers report. Increased awareness of the real benefits of using advanced manufacturing technologies will encourage more companies to adopt these technologies, which will improve their ability to compete on the global stage.
