Additive Manufacturing Association announces two-day AM symposium at Hannover Messe 2017

March 28, 2017

The Additive Manufacturing Association (AMA) within VDMA has announced a two-day symposium to take place on April 27-28 at Hannover Messe 2017, Hannover, Germany. The symposium will focus on the industrial application of Additive Manufacturing technologies.

The symposium, titled ‘Additive Manufacturing in Everyday Production’, will incorporate two presentations: ‘Modern Production Processes with Additive Manufacturing’ and ‘Creating Added Value with Additive Manufacturing’.

On April 27, a keynote speech is to be delivered by Professor Stephan Reimelt, CEO of GE Germany Holding GmbH. In his speech, Reimelt will explore the meaning of additive technologies in increasingly digital production chains in aviation and the potential of the technology to the sector’s further digital transformation. Following Reimelt’s speech will be presentations of strategies for the integration of AM technologies into modern mechanical engineering production chains.

On April 28, the symposium will continue by looking at the prospects of digital AM use in the factories of the future, as well as an overview of the current applications of AM to add value for users. Speakers will reflect on the profitability and reliability of AM technologies over the potential of indirect AM application for optimising injection moulding tools.

“On both days, we will forge a bridge from best-practice in today’s applications to visions of a fully interlinked and completely automated additive production in the future,” stated Dr Rainer Gebhardt, AMA.

Due to limited seating capacity, early registration for the symposium has been advised.
