Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo Announces Complete Program
The agenda for this annual event on additive manufacturing includes technical presentations, networking, equipment demos and facility tours.
Presented by Modern Machine Shop and sister publication Additive Manufacturing, the Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo is a three-day technical conference, exhibit hall and business networking event focused on the industrial applications of additive technologies for production.
The complete agenda for the 2019 Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo (AMC) has been announced. The three day event will take place in Austin, Texas, on August 27-29 and will offer attendees ways to connect with leading suppliers, end-users and researchers of industrial applications for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies.The interactive event includes demonstrations, technical tours, networking and presentations, all held against the backdrop of one of the nation’s most tech forward cities.
“Expanding the show for Austin allows us to dig deeper into all aspects of 3D printing technology for production,” says Dave Necessary, event manager. “Attendees will get to see equipment on the show floor, hear presentations on the latest in industrial 3D printing technology, visit two top notch facilities and experience everything Austin has to offer.”
The AMC program includes technical sessions that delve deep into design, materials, machinery and applications technology used in additive manufacturing for production. Specific topics include automation, aerospace, generative design, postprocessing, metrology, machine learning, injection molds and more.
Technical presenters include OEMs, additive manufacturing service bureaus and machinery suppliers, such as GE Additive, EOS, Formalloy, ZEISS and more. Visitors will also be able to see the technologies in action with tours of EOS North America’s headquarters and the Essentium metal and polymer AM labs.

An engineering modification that would have been impractical or cost-prohibitive in the past is realized on a machine tool performing metal 3D printing and machining in the same cycle.
A new metal AM system for batches of end-use parts was designed to permit productivity and machine pricing comparable to a CNC machine tool.
Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.
