Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space Conference set to take place next month

January 16, 2020

The Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space Conference, organised by IQPC Ltd in partnership with Defence iQ, is set to take place at the Vox Conference Centre, Birmingham, UK, from February 25–27, 2020. 

The conference will feature presentations by nineteen keynote speakers. Key themes on the agenda will include:

  • Certification and standardisation strategies delivering critical assurance for defence and aerospace applications
  • Space, air, land and sea applications for Additive Manufacturing processes
  • Complete production cycle evaluation and assessment of through-life costs
  • Training engineers to ‘think in Additive Manufacturing’ terms to utilise AM’s full potential
  • Innovation and new technologies developing Additive Manufacturing for defence & aerospace
  • Commercialisation of research and developing short-term Additive Manufacturing strategies
  • The National Additive Manufacturing Strategy and its consequences for the defence & aerospace agency

Ahead of the Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space Conference, Defence iQ has compiled a report titled The Road to Serial Additive Manufacturing Production for Aerospace and Space which focuses on the progress and key milestones needed to achieve serial Additive Manufacturing production, with insight from Thales, Trumpf and the European Space Agency. 

In the report, the three companies discuss key priorities, challenges and what they believe needs to be done in order to achieve large-scale AM production in the aerospace and space industries. The full report is available to download from the conference website.
