AMUG conference to include discussion with stereolithography inventor Chuck Hull

February 16, 2015

The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has announced that its 2015 conference will feature a ‘fireside chat’ with Chuck Hull, the inventor of stereolithography and 3D Systems’ Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. The on-stage interview is billed as the highlight of the four day event taking place in Jacksonville, Florida, USA, April 19 – 23, 2015.

Chuck Hull, a recent inductee to the USA’s National Inventors Hall of Fame, will be interviewed during the conference’s Innovators Showcase on Wednesday, April 22nd. Hull will comment on the development of stereolithography and share his experiences overcoming the challenges that innovators face.

“We are ecstatic that Chuck Hull has agreed to join us for the first-ever Innovators Showcase. With the rapid expansion of the industry, few would have an opportunity to hear what’s on the mind of the father of stereolithography,” stated Mark Barfoot, AMUG President. “While this will be a highlight of the AMUG conference, it is just one of over 200 presentations and hands-on workshops that we will offer.”

Aimed at both novice and experienced Additive Manufacturing (AM) users, the conference agenda topics range from technology basics to advanced applications and business considerations. With up to 12 concurrent sessions each day, attendees will have a broad selection of topics from which to choose.

Featured keynote speakers at the conference have been announced as Lonnie Love (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Jason Lopes (Legacy Effects) and Todd Grimm (T A Grimm & Associates). “We have an exciting line-up of keynote speakers, including two returning favourites and one that has gained notoriety for the development of new Additive Manufacturing technologies and processes. These three keynote speakers are internationally recognised, but more importantly, they are passionate about Additive Manufacturing. That passion will jump start each day of our conference,” added Barfoot.

There will also be a wide range of hands-on workshops for applications such as post processing, hydrographic printing, urethane moulding and metal casting. To validate knowledge and be recognised for it, SME will offer its Additive Manufacturing Certificate Program.
