Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016 to showcase latest 3D printing innovations
Final preparations are underway for the first edition of Additive Manufacturing Europe. The event takes place 28-30 June at RAI Amsterdam. This pan-European show will cover all business applications for 3D printing / AM, from prototyping to manufacturing. There will be a particular focus on the medical, aerospace and automotive industries.
Exhibitors include BigRep, EnvisionTEC, Formlabs, Höganäs, Leapfrog, Mcor / AGA 3D Color Solutions, Prodways, Smit Röntgen (Philips), Trumpf, UL, Ultimaker and many more. The full ecosystem of AM / 3D printing technologies will be on display, including additive manufacturing systems, 3D printers for design / prototyping, materials, finishing solutions and inspection, metrology, scanning and digitizing equipment.
A three-day conference will run alongside the exhibition, featuring the latest trends and technologies. Each day will be focused on a different sector – healthcare (28 June), aerospace (29 June) and automotive (30 June).
Healthcare topics include customized medical devices, prosthetics and dentistry presented by speakers from Stryker, King’s College Hospital and Dentbay. Other notable speakers include Fokker-GKN Aerospace, Local Motors and the Centre for Advanced Additive Manufacturing (University of Sheffield).
UL AM workshops
In addition to the conference program, UL will present three separate one-day workshops during the show. This training will cover some of the most important topics in the industry, from understanding the benefits and limitations of different 3D printing technologies and materials through to advanced design and testing.
- Fundamentals of additive manufacturing designs (28 June)
- Design strategies for additive manufacturing (29 June)
- Managing quality and safety in additive manufacturing (30 June)
UL is a leading provider of AM training programs and these workshops have been specially adapted for the show. Each workshop will run from 9:00 to 18:00 and course fees include lunch and refreshments. In order to encourage interaction, seating will be very limited, so delegates are advised to book their places soon. The full program, including pricing, is available at www.amshow-europe.com.
During the show, exhibitors will also present some of their innovations in a dedicated area of the show floor, sponsored by Ultimaker. These sessions are free of charge to attend for show visitors and seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
