Look who's signed up already!

submitted by  Jill Kenik

The APMM Seattle 2020 Conference is quickly proving to be a very exciting event - so exciting that we have already had six Vendors take advantage our Advance Reservation offer: Aves, B9 Creations, Camera Graphics, McCausey Specialty Products, Silicones, Inc. and Silpak have already committed to being part of Seattle 2020.


B9 Creations, a manufacturer of affordable, high-resolution 3D printing equipment will be returning for their third APMM conference.  Dani Mason, Sales & Marketing Director for B9 says, "APMM is an invaluable show for us as a manufacturer. Unlike large trade shows where it can be difficult to have meaningful conversations with potential customers, the atmosphere is intimate and educational with plenty of opportunity for meaningful exchanges. Plus it’s a great community – one of constant learning and sharing knowledge. I can’t overstate the impact that APMM, the conference and member association itself, has had on B9Creations."


Long time APMM member McCausey Specialty Products has been a preferred supplier of model, pattern and prototyping materials for more than 30 years. They offer pattern grade lumber, laminated pattern plank, and a wide variety of composite tooling board materials, specifically designed for precise fixture fabrication. McCausey folks Heleen Roach-Heaton and Blair Wollenzin are familiar faces at our events.


Don and Jerry Galarneau are nearly an APMM conference fixture!  Silpak, Inc., established in 1984, is a leading industrial manufacturer and supplier of liquid rubber and liquid plastic polymer systems used in a variety of mold making and casting applications. Silpak is a long-time APMM Vendor and we always look forward to seeing their offerings at the Conference.


Another conference regular is David Brummel of Aves Studio.  David was quick to commit to the upcoming APMM Conference, commenting that APMM Conferences provide networking opportunities and the ability to work with people that who, like himself, are looking to the future of our industry.  Aves Studio manufactures fine clays and maches and their products enable artists to design, create, build and restore at extraordinary levels.  Aves self-hardening, synthetic clays & maches offer the highest quality and performance available. 


Myra Bumgardner of Silicones, Inc. has also exhibited at our Conferences before. Silicones, Inc. has the formulating and manufacturing expertise to produce custom RTV-2 silicones for a variety of applications.  They have earned a sterling reputation for innovation, quality and consistency in a wide range of industries. 



John and Christy Zell of Camera Graphics in Portland will also be joining us again. Their dry transfers are a unique tool for applying graphics to a wide variety of substrates. Their uses and applications are limited only to your imagination. They allow you to apply graphics quickly and easily on a limited or smaller production scale as needed.
