Event to highlight Additive Manufacturing opportunities for industry

This year marks the 12th annual International Conference on Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing and its 19-strong speaker roster confirms it will not disappoint. Speakers from academia, research and industry, including presentations from Airbus & Johnson Matthey, will share their views, expertise, developments and case studies over the two-day main conference sessions running from 12th-13th July at the Nottingham Belfry.

Topics range from creating an AM-capable workforce in the UK and the Gartner hype cycle to nano-particle jetting technology, mass-produced customised hearing aids, AM innovations in semiconductors and aerospace and design-led manufacturing to the ever-expanding AM applications in metals – for everything from Chris Froome’s Tour de France winning handlebars to parts of the International Space Station.

“Our conference prides itself on including a mix of speakers from research and industry roles to illustrate not only the current applications of AM technology, but to provide a platform for experts to share inroads they are making to improve the technology and expand its future uses for everyday life,” said conference chair, Prof. Richard Hague.

“We are very excited about this year’s speakers that hail from renowned research institutions, start-ups and emerging companies to established industry players and well-known brands. As always, we steer clear of the hype around 3DP and focus on the realities at every phase of technology development,” Hague continued.

It is this commitment that has resulted in the first-ever ‘Industrial Realities’ pre-conference event, which will be held on 11th July with Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network, kicking off the main conference and exhibition.
