The Second Munich Technology Conference (MTC2) on Additive Manufacturing will be held at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) on October 10–11, 2018. Hosted by Oerlikon, TUM and Bayern Innovativ, the conference is supported by an industry partner network including Siemens, TÜV Süd, GE and Linde.

The programme features a range of speakers from industry, academia and government, who will focus on challenges and success stories for Additive Manufacturing and address ways in which the technology’s adoption can be accelerated across industries. According to the organisers, this interdisciplinary exchange is extremely relevant at this point in the technology’s development, as its consistent use necessitates a rethinking of the manufacturing process at multiple levels.

In addition to a number of keynote speakers on the first day of the conference, more than six-hundred AM professionals are expected to participate in interactive sessions, with the second day to be dedicated to in-depth workshops continuing the first day’s discussions and addressing specifics such as AM hardware and materials.

Prof Dr Michael Süss, Chairman of the Board of Oerlikon, commented, “Additive Manufacturing is the ‘physical arm’ of digitalisation. The full potential of this technology can only unfold in an ecosystem comprised of strong partners at every step of the value creation chain. The Munich Technology Conference offers an ideal platform for the exchange of ideas among these partners.”
