at SAMPE Seattle 2017 Conference

South Windsor, CT, May 23, 2017 - Oxford Performance Materials, Inc. (OPM), a leader in advanced materials science and high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM™), today announced that its Chief Technology Officer, Tony DeCarmine, will participate on a panel discussion at the annual Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) Seattle 2017 Conference. 

The panel, titled “Additive Manufacturing of Composite Structures,” will review composite additive manufacturing methods with continuous and chopped fiber reinforcements.  Panelists will review current, state of the art, and future enhancements, as well as research on the topic.  Attendees will learn what can be done today and in the future to create composite structures in an automated way.  Anyone involved with the design, analysis, or manufacture of composite structures should attend with questions for the panel.  

The panel will take place on Wednesday, May 24th from 9:00 AM PST – 11:00 AM PST at the Washington State Convention Center, Level-3 – Tahoma-3.

DeCarmine will provide insight into how OPM’s OXFAB® technology is ideally suited for highly demanding end-market aerospace, satellite and defense applications where functional complexity and weight reduction can have a substantial and positive impact on performance, while also yielding cost and energy savings. OXFAB® structures offer significant weight, cost and time-to-market reductions that are defined in a set of specified performance attributes in the exhaustive OPM B-Basis database, developed in conjunction with NASA and Northrop Grumman. 

About Oxford Performance Materials, Inc.

A recognized leader in advanced materials science, Oxford Performance Materials Inc. (OPM) was founded in 2000 to exploit and commercialize the world’s highest performing thermoplastics, with a focus on poly-ether-ketone-ketone (PEKK).  OPM develops proprietary material, process and application technologies and applies high performance additive manufacturing (HPAM™) to produce fully functional end-use structural parts. The Company has three strategic business units: OPM Materials develops proprietary OXPEKK® thermoplastic products and other materials for biomedical, aerospace and industrial applications. OPM Aerospace & Industrial produces 3D printed OXFAB® production parts for highly demanding aerospace, satellite and defense applications. OXFAB® structures offer significant weight, cost and time-to-market reductions that are defined in a set of specified performance attributes in the exhaustive OPM B-Basis database, developed in conjunction with NASA and Northrop Grumman.  OPM Biomedical is a pioneer in personalized medicine, 3D printing OsteoFab® cranial and facial implants as an OEM, and its SpineFab® line on a contract manufacturing basis. OPM Biomedical is the first and only company to receive FDA 510(k) clearance to manufacture 3D printed patient-specific polymeric implants, and has a total of four 510(k) clearances in its portfolio.
