3D Printing Post Processing Conference: Integration of Additive Manufacturing into your manufacturing process

There are many manufacturers who would like to be able to offer more individualization of the products they manufacture. With the growth of Additive Manufacturing, more and more organisations are starting to look at the possibilities to integrate this technology in their manufacturing processes. One of the core advantages that AM has is that its digital technology. It is completely CAD/CAM-based.

Trends in AM Growth

Three trends are visible, which overlap each other as well :

  • Use of Hybrid manufacturing (systems where additive and subtractive manufacturing are combined in the same machine)
  • Implementation of AM systems as part of an end-to-end production workflow (including: material handling systems, multiple additive manufacturing systems, part handling systems, part cleaning systems, curing/heat treatment systems, support/powder removal and recycling systems, part inspection systems and part finishing systems)
  • Implementation of AM systems in the ‘traditional’ production processes (in other words, building a complete production chain with several state-of-the-art production technologies like milling, robots, welding, Additive Manufacturing and more).

The integration of AM requires a transition at software level as well with CAD/CAM/CAE software feeding into Simulation, MES and PLM software tools.

 

The conference covers the developments going on in further integration of AM in production processes, and how to act upon.

Program & Conferences

For an overview of the half a day conference program, please click here. The AM Integrated Factory Conference (13:30 hrs – 17:00 hrs) takes place at the same location and date as the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference (09:00 hrs – 12:30 hrs), you can register for one or both of these two half-day conferences.
