2017 Additive Manufacturing Conference Program Announced

The conference covers industrial uses of additive manufacturing, including 3D-printed mold tooling, spare-parts manufacturing and more.

Additive Manufacturing Conference 2016

Nearly 500 manufacturing professionals attended the 2016 edition of the conference, representing well-known OEMS down to the small firms that serve them.

Taking place October 10-12 in Knoxville, Tennessee, this year’s Additive Manufacturing Conference highlights not just additive manufacturing (AM) technology, but also the systems, processes and strategies that make it viable. Technical sessions will address design, materials, equipment and applications for industrial AM, as well as supporting technologies ranging from process control to hybrid CNC machining.

Speakers represent OEMS, AM job shops, machinery suppliers and research organizations. Specific presentation topics include:

  • 3D-printed mold tooling;
  • Practical applications for hybrid AM;
  • How to incorporate AM into an existing business; and
  • Additive manufacturing of spare parts on demand.

Other highlights of the program include networking opportunities; more than 25 exhibitors; and tours of the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (ORNL MDF), Local Motors Microfactory and metal additive service bureau Volunteer Aerospace.
