March 9, 2020

Organised by Materialise Materialise NV, headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, the Materialise World Summit (MWS) will take place in Brussels, Belgium, on November 5–6, 2020, after its original date of May 14–15 was postponed due to travel restrictions caused by the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

The two-day conference will feature a dedicated AM Track which will examine the relationship between Additive Manufacturing and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), looking specifically at how a sustainable industry can be built for the decades to come. 

The following relevant topics will be explored on the AM track:

Applications contributing to the SDGs

Highlighting applications in AM that make substantial contributions to sustainable manufacturing. From on-demand manufacturing as a responsible counterpoint to fast fashion, to enabling lightweight design that ultimately results in fuel savings.

Chains that change the world

The digitalisation of supply chains and the rise of distributed manufacturing networks are two areas in which AM can help meet sustainability demands and benefit the environment. This track will look at some successful examples of how supply chains powered by AM are establishing sustainable operations.

Processes and software for people, planet, and profit

What role do Additive Manufacturing processes and software play in making AM future-proof? These two elements are key in minimising waste, maximising productivity, and empowering creative minds, ultimately enabling sustainable AM for the planet, profit, and our people.

Anchoring commitment to a better world

Additive Manufacturing is said to play a crucial role in anchoring corporate commitment to a better world. Industry leaders from aerospace to eyewear will showcase how their corporate vision for AM shapes their contribution to sustainability.

Further information and registration details are available via the event website.
