Additive Manufacturing for Defence and Aerospace – 17th – 19th February 2015, London UK

Revolutionising 3D innovation in Aerospace and Defence

Aerospace and Defence currently represents over 10% of the global Additive Manufacturing (AM) market, also known as 3D printing. The metal Additive Manufacturing sector alone has grown by over 70% in the last 15 years. Industry primes widely acknowledge that AM will usher in a new era of design innovation and be pivotal in reducing production costs and simplifying logistics in the future.

An Additive Manufacturing patent is produced every 6 hours in the United States, therefore the potential for AM within the Aerospace and Defence industry in Europe cannot be underestimated as 3D printing is likely to spearhead a manufacturing revolution that will transform military supply chains.
Additive Manufacturing Europe pushes academics and industry to break their technological boundaries by focusing on final part production as a key element in changing the dynamic of AM in Aerospace and Defence.

Key topics to be addressed:
• Multi-material development and methodology
• Multi-functional additive manufacturing and associated case studies
• Industrial qualification issues including feasibility studies, testing and certification methods and cost-benefit analysis
• Academic future concepts and case study discussion

Why you should attend:
• Learn from industry and academic case studies of AM methods and best practice to maximise your output and minimise cost
• Assess how Additive Manufacturing products can be used for mass and final part production and how they will be utilised in future service and operations
• Gain an understanding of the challenges your peers face in the pursue of industrial qualification and discussion in to how you will be affected in the future
• Network with academics and peers in an informal environment to exchange information and know-how to keep up to date with industry trends and developments
