Divergent Technologies to Speak, Showcase Blade at 3D Printing USA 2015

CEO Kevin Czinger to Speak on ‘Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing’ at Annual Conference that Focuses on 3D Printing Innovation

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--Divergent Technologies today announced Founder and CEO Kevin Czinger is a featured speaker at the 3D Printing USA 2015 conference and exhibition being held November 18 & 19 in Santa Clara, California. Mr. Czinger will speak on "Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing" and offer an innovative alternative to traditional auto manufacturing that dramatically reduces pollution and capital costs through a proprietary platform that incorporates 3D printing. In addition, Divergent Technologies' widely acclaimed supercar built upon this technology, the Blade, will be on display for conference attendees on the 18th. The "Dematerializing Auto Manufacturing" presentation will be held on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 4:45PM in Great America Meeting Room 3.

"3D printing is ushering in a 21st century industrial revolution aimed at encouraging innovation in manufacturing while reducing its harmful environmental impacts," said Kevin Czinger, founder & CEO, Divergent Technologies. "In our case, we are taking aim at the automotive industry. 80 to 90 percent of the environmental and health damage caused by cars comes from the manufacturing, not the tailpipe emissions. That simply is not sustainable: we've produced two billion cars total to date, which will rise to six billion over the next 35 years. We've developed a better way to make incredible cars and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 70 percent. I look forward to sharing our vision of a sustainable path forward for auto manufacturing at 3D Printing USA 2015."

The centerpiece of Divergent Technologies' innovative approach to car manufacturing is the Blade, the world's first 3D-printed supercar. The Blade's chassis is constructed from its unique and proprietary 3D metal printed connectors called Nodes, which join aerospace carbon fiber into an incredibly light (102 pounds) and strong frame. The Blade is also equipped with a 700-horsepower bi-fuel engine that goes from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, faster than a Tesla Model S, making it one of the greenest and most powerful cars ever created.

The Blade will be showcased both November 18 & 19 as part of 3D Printing USA 2015, an annual conference and exhibition that covers the current and future markets and technologies of 3D printing. This year's theme is "The Next Step for Additive Manufacturing."
