Inside 3D Printing 2016: Metal printing in the aerospace, automobile, and tool industries

Expert conference for additive manufacturing methods at the METAV in Düsseldorf on the 24/25 February 2016

Simply print in metal instead of casting,

machining or rolling! Inside 3D Printing, the most important expert conference on
3D printing will be taking place next year on February 24 and 25 at the Düsseldorf
trade fair grounds together with the METAV, the international trade fair for
technologies in metal processing. Inside 3D Printing offers a conference on
additive manufacturing covering metals and plastic components. The focus
industries of the next conference are aerospace, automobile, tool manufacturing,
and medical technology. Through a cooperation with METAV, Inside 3D Printing
will deliver educational synergies for the participants while greatly increase the
number of visitors to the accompanying exhibition.
Other planned highlights of the event are wearables, i.e. wearable devices connected to
the Internet and a range of topics on Industry 4.0 and the "Internet of Things". Dr. Eric
Klemp, Commercial Director of the Direct Manufacturing Research Center (DMRC) of
the Universität Paderborn and program coordinator of the conference says: "The factory
of the future will be much more networked than today and additive manufacturing will be
an increasingly important method of manufacture. It will facilitate the integration of an
unimaginable intelligence even into the smallest of components. Thanks to 3D printing,
even 'smart' products -- from fashionable accessories, to technical tools and aids for the
workplace or nursing care -- can be created with a degree of individualisation and
personalisation never before possible. We are presenting fascinating, technical
presentations and application examples."
Forum for professional exchange on additive manufacturing processes
Inside 3D Printing was created by Mecklermedia and Rising Media to serve as a forum
for professional exchange on a range of topics about additive manufacturing and drew
over 3,000 visitors at its premier in 2013 in New York. Since then, the event has been
held in nine different cities including New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Santa Clara, Mumbai,
and Shanghai. Being presented will be new business opportunities though 3D printing,
case examples from companies and the current state of research on the technology. The
event producers agreed to a cooperation between Inside 3D Printing and METAV for the
German conference last November. All METAV visitors will have access to Inside 3D
Printing and the new "Additive Manufacturing Area", an exhibition area, including forum
on additive manufacturing processes, which is also being organised by Rising Media.
Inside 3D Printing is aimed at experts, researchers, service providers, manufacturers,
merchants, and investors, as well as experts from various industries who want to expand
their knowledge about the professional use of 3D printing technologies. The roughly 60
conference sessions will present business opportunities, case examples, and the current
state of research on the technology. The companies sharing their experiences at the last
event in March included Airbus, Boeing, Cassidian, EDAG, EOS, Fraunhofer-
Gesellschaft, Hermle, HP, Materialise, Phoenix Contact and SLM. Over 1,000
participants flocked to the expert presentations each day and exchanged ideas and
experiences at the accompanying exhibition with forty exhibitors, sponsors, and
conference partners.
Higher exposure for exhibitors
Through the integration into the METAV, exhibitors and sponsors of Inside 3D Printing
can expect an even greater number of professional visitors and additional attention in
the metal-processing industry. They will receive both presence in the technical
conference as well as in the Additive Manufacturing Area within the METAV.
Dr. Eric Klemp: "Visitors to Inside 3D Printing are users of additive manufacturing
processes, who no longer need an explanation of the basics. Rather, they want to
explore both the technical and commercial possibilities that the 3D printing methods
have to offer. As the leading technical conference, we are also offering in-depth
information on strategies, the latest developments and application of the leading
companies and prestigious national and international experts."
Tickets for the Inside 3D Printing 2016 in Düsseldorf are available now. Conference
visitors who register before October 2, 2015 will benefit from greatly discounted prices.
