about

Conference on additive manufacturng maturity

The 3D-Print Conference

The maturity of 3D-Printing is finally on the horizon. If you are not investigating or implementing the possibilities of additive manufacturing (AM) as of now, you have missed something. Investments are going up, software platforms get integrated, standards are well underway, machines are getting faster and better and industrial material providers are entering the marketplace. But above all, business cases are easier to find. Large corporate companies like BMW, Adidas, Airbus and Starbucks have a complete digital supply chain strategy and many organisations are starting with a spare part digitisation project.

What to expect on 3D-Print Conference: Additive Manufacturing Maturity

Introduction of 3D-Print Conference: Additive Manufacturing Maturity

Location: Main Hall

Phil Reeves is currently leading a project sponsored by the UK government and the British Standards Institute (BSI) looking at how senior business leaders and decision makers in industry and finance should approach the development and assessment of business cases for using 3D Printing. This will be published as a formal BSI standard later in the year. The project looks at the management factors of AM/3DP such as assessing risk, change management, technology evaluation, raising finance, supply chain development and skills.

Deutsche Bahn has already manufactured 7,000 components via 3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing, with over 120 applications in their trains and Infrastructure. The service and maintenance divisions of DB has to deal with rare components that are not always available on the market. In order to reduce costly stocks and improve quality and delivery times of these components, DB has adopted AM and 3D Printing in their service and maintenance operations. A true front runner in Europe. Stefanie will share examples of 3D printing, as well as her view on how this technology can be applied in other sectors since she knows from her network members what they realize and expect from the technology. Not only for rail...

The Royal Dutch Navy installed 3D printers on board all large marine vessels in order to manufacture plastic non crucial components right there were they are needed. Wanningen shares unexpected applications of 3D printing with us, and his views on being self sufficient and independent out there at sea in harsh conditions.

Leading companies have already made the switch to optical metrology in the more traditional manufacturing processes such as plastic injection moulding, sheet metal forming and casting. As the additive manufacturing technologies are maturing, more and more companies introduce optical metrology in their processes. Using optical techniques for functional testing, process control and quality control offers many benefits, especially for 3D printed parts which are often complex, have free forms and are highly customized. The results of the different applications presented will show how and why optical metrology is implemented throughout the process and how it contributes to the maturity of additive manufacturing.

Meeting safety and industry standards is crucial for 3D Printed (spare) parts to be used in industry. Next to quality requirements, the 3D Printed parts also need to bring economic benefits. Berenschot and DNV-GL teamed up and manage a joint industry project in the Oil, Gas and Maritime sectors to develop an industry supported quideline to ensure that parts meet stated quality and are manufactured in a safe and repeatable manner. At the same time the economics of the demonstrator parts produced in the project are translated into a Business Impact Model. In the presentation Onno will share learnings and results on both aspects
