Early-bird deadline approaches for post-processing and integrated factory conferences

Two half-day Additive Manufacturing-related conferences, running consecutively on December 4, 2018, will be held at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands. Organised by Jakajima B.V., the 3D Printing Post Processing Conference will run in the morning followed by the AM Integrated Factory Conference in the afternoon.

3D Printing Post Processing Conference will encompass primary and secondary post-processing operations, including cleaning and support structure removal, and machining and plating. The conference programme will look at issues, solutions and future trends for the post-processing of additively manufactured components, as well as the impact of the post-processing phase on time, cost, quality, safety, etc., of AM operations.

AM Integrated Factory Conference will address the integration of AM into manufacturing processes, looking at key trends such as the use of hybrid manufacturing systems combining additive and subtractive technologies, the implementation of AM systems as part of an end-to-end production workflow, and the implementation of AM systems in traditional production processes (i.e. as part of a production chain with several state-of-the-art production technologies).

The conference programme will also look at the transition this integration requires at software level, with CAD/CAM/CAE software feeding into simulation, manufacturing execution systems and PLM software tools.

Registration for both conferences is currently available at discounted early-bird rates until October 24, 2018. Attendees can register for the conferences together or separately.
