Rapid + TCT 2019 will host more than 350 exhibitors at the Cobo Center, Detroit

 

Rapid + TCT 2019 will be held at the Cobo Center, Detroit, Michigan, USA, from May 20–23, 2019. The exhibition and conference, organised by SME, Dearborn, Michigan, USA, and Rapid News Publications Ltd, Chester, UK, is the largest and longest-running Additive Manufacturing exhibition in North America. In 2018, it was held Fort Worth, Texas, USA, where it was attended by over 6,000 visitors and hosted more than 300 exhibitors.

This year’s show will be the second iteration of the event to be held in Detroit, where the first ever Rapid exhibition was held almost thirty years ago. The city, historically the centre of the US automotive industry, has in recent years has experienced a resurgence in new developments and tech startups, seeing $13 billion in new investments across more than two-hundred projects since 2006.

More than 350 exhibitors will showcase their latest AM solutions and innovations at Rapid + TCT 2019, including Additive Manufacturing systems and materials, 3D scanning technology, design and process management software, solutions for metrology & inspection, and other related technologies. On the 2019 conference schedule, over 150 speakers will detail their research and developments on the latest processes, applications, materials and more.

Thirty-six conference sessions will be held on the topic of metal Additive Manufacturing, including a keynote session presented by Naomi Murray, PhD, Director of Advanced Operations, Additive Technology Solutions at medical device manufacturer Stryker. To kick off day two of the conference, Murray’s session ‘Additive Manufacturing: Leveraging Design Capabilities for Production of Devices that Make Healthcare Better’ will give insight into her experiences of Stryker’s approach to implant creation by metal AM technology, resulting in several FDA-cleared orthopaedic implants.
