Revolutionising 3D innovation in Aerospace and Defence
Coming up this week is a London conference looking at Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace and Defence
17 - 19 February, 2015 - Hilton London Kensington, London, United Kingdom
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. It is widely acknowledged that AM will usher in a new era of design innovation and be pivotal in reducing production costs and simplifying logistics in the future.
Amazingly, an Additive Manufacturing patent is produced every six hours in the United States, therefore the potential for AM within the Aerospace and Defence industry in Europe cannot be underestimated - 3D printing is likely to spearhead a manufacturing revolution that will transform military supply chains.
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
There is still time to attend, but pricing
is not for the fainthearted!
