Home Events - Clarion Area Chamber Community Events How PSU DuBois’ LaunchBox is Solving Complex Manufacturing Problems

Come join Penn State DuBois and Cimquest for an event on how to leverage Reverse Engineering, Inspection and 3D Printing solutions for your manufacturing needs!

During this event, you will have the option to come and go as you please. There will be an opportunity to network, review parts from the various technologies Cimquest represents and witness live demonstrations of 3D Scanning. There will be tours of the LaunchBox as well as two presentations; one from Cimquest and the other from PSU DuBois. These presentations will be offered twice throughout the day:

  • Cimquest’s Manufacturing Solutions Presentation at 10:00 AM & 1:00 PM
  • “How to Leverage PSU’s Idea Lab” given by Brad Lashinsky at 11:00 AM & 2:00 PM

Cimquest’s experts will give a presentation showcasing multiple technologies and how they can all work together to solve complex manufacturing goals. These technologies include:

  • Mastercam for CNC Programming
  • 3D Scanning for Inspection
  • 3D Scanning for Reverse Engineering
  • Scan Processing
  • Metal 3D Printing
  • Plastic & Composite 3D Printing

Additionally, Brad Lashinsky, the Director of the NPCA Launchbox, will give a presentation on how Penn State DuBois is leveraging these technologies to make a difference in the local economy. These presentations will happen twice within the span of the event, so if you miss one because you were touring the LaunchBox, you’ll have the opportunity to see it later on!

Since Cimquest and Penn State DuBois partnered to develop the North Central PA LaunchBox Idea Lab, on your tour you will get to see technologies like 3D Scanning and Inspection on the FreeScan UE11, SLS on the Formlabs Fuse 1, FFF on the Makerbot METHOD series and UltiMaker; all of which are represented by Cimquest. Each technology has its own strength and allows the school’s LaunchBox to help entrepreneurs and local industries. Additionally, students learn about the modern state of manufacturing at the LaunchBox and obtain real, hands-on experience with technology that will shape their future.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, company owner, engineer, production manager, floor supervisor or student, the NCPA LaunchBox will demonstrate the technologies and equipment that many companies throughout the region have already utilized for solving simple and complex production problems.
