3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing Global Summit 2013
There has been much hype recently around the transformational potential of 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies, which now seem to be gaining critical mass and momentum in their applications.
Yet for businesses to justify investment, clarity is required on what these new technologies really mean in terms of commercial opportunities for industrial production - specifically the costs, limitations and identification of where these processes could generate new value alongside traditional manufacturing methods.
With this in mind, we are delighted to bring you the 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing Industrial Applications Summit 2013 - the world's first industry-driven additive manufacturing event designed specifically to identify the real business benefits and new opportunities AM technologies present.
Hosting a cross-section of industry leaders and pioneering experts, you will be able to gain first hand insights on successful commercial applications, state-of-the-art machine and material developments, costs and intellectual property challenges.
Key Themes Include:
INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS: Lessons from early adopters and case studies of additive manufacturing technologies in application today: Where does the rubber meet the road?
MATERIAL DEVELOPMENTS: Understanding what is possible today and the latest advances with the use of metals & polymers
STATE OF THE ART: Assessing the latest innovations in additive manufacturing: Which technologies are receiving attention in terms of investment and research?
DESIGNING FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURE: Examining practical applications of new design processes and shapes to overcome limitations of traditional manufacturing processes and create new functionality
EQUIPMENT & MATERIAL COSTS: Understanding current capital cost limitations as a function of size and fidelity: What should a financial balance sheet look like to justify investment?
POTENTIAL FOR MASS PRODUCTION: Assessing scalability barriers to producing reliable, reproducible products at high quality
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: Exploring solutions for addressing challenges around intellectual property, data security and product authenticity
Building on our reputation for addressing the hottest industry issues, this groundbreaking summit will not only provide you with the opportunity to network with key industry players but critically, arm you with the knowledge you need to fully evaluate opportunities for your business.
