The AIAA-RM 6th Annual Technical Symposium
Date: November 17, 2017
Location: Metropolitan State University of Denver
As part of the 6th Annual Technical Symposium, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is hosting a panel on Additive Manufacturing at the upcoming AIAA symposium in Denver. The title of the panel is “The Effects of Advanced Additive Manufacturing Techniques on the Engineering Life-cycle”, and will be led by Mike Gazarik the VP of Engineering for Ball Aerospace. We hope to generate discussion on the benefits of additive manufacturing, in design, breadboards, and final products. Experts will discuss developments to come and current needs for improvement to help Additive Manufacturing grow in the aerospace community.
Heidi Hostetter of H2 Manufacturing Solutions and Faustson Tool will be a featured speaker on the panel. Heidi Hostetter has over 23 years of experience in technical sales, marketing and operations. Her expertise spans many different industries and commodities, although, for more than a decade now, her business development interests have remained focused on mechanical commodities and the support/emerging manufacturing technologies that accompany this particular industry. She has deep roots with many of the nation’s leading OEMs as well as within academia and the community. Career highlights include 2016 Manufacturer Innovation Award, 2014 Ball Platinum Supplier of the Year, White House Supply Chain roundtable discussion in 2015, 2014 Floyd King Entrepreneurial Spirit Award, 2000 Datex-Omeda Sales Rep of the Year, and 1999 top-performing sales rep for Utah and Colorado. Heidi is a board member for Northern Colorado Manufacturers (NOCO). She serves on various committees and was the visionary behind what is now known today as the Adapt Center at Colorado School of Mines.
