AppliedAM Conference Features Industrial 3D-Printing Applications
Presenters at the AppliedAM Conference at IMTS 2018 speak about real-world 3D-printing applications for a variety of industries.
The AppliedAM conference, hosted by EOS North America, features presentations about 3D-printing applications and how they are used by organizations in the medical, aerospace, industrial, electronics and automotive industries. The conference, which is located in the West Building, Level 1, Room W183, kicks off Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. with a box lunch. Sessions begin at 12:15 p.m.
“AppliedAM is designed as an application-focused symposium for industrial 3D printing, tailored to share real stories of how organizations are employing and maturing their AM programs today,” says Patrick Boyd, marketing director at EOS North America. “The event shies away from futuristic animations and unrealistic models. It shares the ideas being used now to grow additive manufacturing programs and focuses on how AM is being leveraged in the modern manufacturing environment.”
Speakers from EOS, Boeing, Arconic, Siemens, Under Armor and more are speaking on topics such as how industrial 3D printing is being employed, Industry 4.0, transformation of design and production processes due to 3D-printed parts, best practices for successful additive manufacturing adoption and more.
“Additive Manufacturing is now becoming more integrated into the production environment,” Boyd says. “Processes are maturing, materials are becoming more widely available, and true serial production is now possible with AM. Industrial 3D printing is tailor-made as the tip of the spear for the migration toward Industry 4.0 and the digitalization of manufacturing.”
This conference marks the 10th AppliedAM event since 2009, and the third show to be co-located at IMTS.
