3D goes industrial: Accelerating the use of Additive Manufacturing across industries

-600+ experts from leading companies, academia and state officials expected at conference on October 10-11, 2018, at Technical University of Munich (TUM). -Hosts Oerlikon, TUM and Bayern Innovativ are supported by a strong industry partner network that includes Siemens, TÜV Süd, General Electric and Linde. -Keynote speakers will focus on Additive Manufacturing (AM) challenges and success stories, and will address ways to speed up the industrialization of AM. -Workshops with experts on second day will address topics such as AM transformation, hardware progresses and implementation of industrial AM for decision makers.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) - commonly referred to as 3D printing - is much talked about and celebrated as the key technology of the future. How can we speed up the industrialization of AM in order to improve industrial processes and the creation of new products? Which challenges have to be overcome, and how can we learn from market success stories? These and other questions will be discussed at the upcoming Munich Technology Conference (MTC2).

In this second annual conference, renowned experts from industry, academia and government will discuss the truly ground-breaking power of AM.

The interdisciplinary exchange about major challenges and opportunities posed by the broad industrialization of Additive Manufacturing is more relevant than ever. The consistent use of AM necessitates the complete rethinking of the manufacturing process at multiple levels. AM technology can be used to supplement or replace existing processes and can be used to improve upon weaknesses in others, for example in vehicle and aircraft construction.

More than 600 AM professionals from around the world are expected to participate in interactive sessions at the conference. On the first day, keynote speakers will address the key challenges and opportunities presented by AM. The second day will be dedicated to in-depth workshops, where participants will continue the first day's discussions and address specifics such as AM hardware or materials.
Don't miss it!
In addition to hearing from experts in Additive Manufacturing, MTC2 offers great networking opportunities - meet the pioneering practitioners of AM and company representatives who can you address your challenges. To register, visit munichtechconference.com
