Additive Manufacturing Conference Announces Program at Detroit Auto Show
The inaugural Additive Manufacturing Automotive Workshop at the North American Industry Auto Show (NAIAS) features presentations from major automotive OEMs. Register today.
The Additive Manufacturing Workshop Series, presented by Modern Machine Shop and sister publication Additive Manufacturing magazine, offers focused, technical content on the industrial applications of additive technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts in your shop.
The inaugural workshop series will kick off at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) January 16 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, Michigan. The workshop will cover technical content on how 3D-printing technology is shaking up auto manufacturing.
Presenters include Ford, Hackrod, Sodick, Siemens, Carbon, Desktop Metal and Renishaw. Topics focus on end-use part manufacture, production at scale, AM integration and more. Each session will feature case studies that demonstrate the successes and obstacles of 3D printing for production.
Registration includes access to the NAIAS Industry Preview, a $110 value. This unique networking and professional development opportunity brings together nearly 40,000 automotive professionals and analysts representing over 2,200 companies from around the world. They represent the key individuals responsible for the cutting-edge products, technologies and services on display at NAIAS.
“3D printing is becoming a larger part of the conversation on automotive production than ever before,” says Peter Zelinski, Editor-in-Chief of Additive Manufacturing magazine. “The Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Automotive at NAIAS is the best place to explore how additive manufacturing will affect the future of the car industry.”

When Precision Metal Products purchased its first 3D printer last year, the company hoped to collapse both tooling costs and lead times. But the technology’s impact is reaching core business operations, enabling the shop to focus on higher-margin, lower-volume production.
