Additive World ‘Industrial 3D Printing Conference’ 15-16 MARCH, 2017

0

The goal of our growing conference, targeted at industrial additive manufacturing only (so no consumer printing), is to exchange visions, knowledge, applications and experiences on industrial additive manufacturing. It has proven to be an exciting event to meet fellow AM professionals and be inspired. This year we will return to the Eindhoven High Tech Campus on March 15. On this 1st day of the Conference, the focus will be again on Technology and Applications. Topics which are going to be discussed will cover the complete additive manufacturing value chain like design for additive manufacturing, materials, equipment, post processing and the best business cases. The first day of the Conference will be closed by the Additive World Awards dinner. The 2nd day of the Conference (March 16) allows participants to have an exclusive view ‘Inside Additive Industries’. Additive Industries will open their doors and share ‘what’s cooking in their Labs’. Besides sharing our vision on the future, the participants will get a ‘live’ demonstration of the MetalFAB1, the first industrial metal 3D printing system for series production.

Opening by Additive Industries

Daan A.J. Kersten In 2012 Daan founded, together with Jonas Wintermans, Additive Industries, a high tech start-up company industrialising 3D printing for functional parts in various metals. The ambition of Additive Industries is to bring additive manufacturing and 3D printing from lab to fab and allow the high tech manufacturing industry to capitalise on the opportunities additive manufacturing has to offer in creating lighter, compact, integrated, more complex products & parts with better thermal performance/ characteristics. Daan has been at the helm of several companies, some of them from the start. His heart beats for the high tech manufacturing industry and open innovation in the supply chain. In the evening hours, Daan is a board member and initiator of NextOEM, an accelerator program for young high tech companies.
