August 10, 2018

The Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace (AMA) Conference and Exhibition 2018 will be held at the Bremenhalle, Bremen, Germany, September 19-20, 2018. Organised by the Airbus-endowed Chair for Integrative Simulation and Engineering of Materials and Processes (ISEMP) of the University of Bremen, AMA aims to represent the newest developments in Additive Manufacturing in the aircraft industry, while promoting networking and knowledge sharing between different industries, such as automotive and power, as well as research institutes.

The focus of the 2018 conference will be on the challenges posed by the series production of metal AM parts. The programme will be divided into six sessions addressing key topics in this area, and will also feature a panel discussion between  experts from Premium Aerotec, Airbus, Ariane Group, APWorks and Hensoldt Sensors:

Wednesday, September 19

  • Process Chain for AM Serial Production
  • AM Related Lightweight Design
  • Part Testing and Quality Assurance
  • Panel Discussion – Challenges of AM Serial Production

Thursday, September 20

  • High Production Rate AM Technologies
  • Oral Poster Presentations
  • Data Handling and Simulation-driven Solutions

These sessions will incorporate discussions of series production using well-established metal Additive Manufacturing technologies such as Powder Bed Fusion (PBF), as well as emerging technologies such as direct metal deposition.

Registration for AMA 2018 is available at a discounted early-bird rate until August 31, 2018. Further details and the full programme are available via the conference website.
