Workshop: 3D Printing & Powder Metallurgy

Wednesday 11:30 a.m

Moderator: Alain Honnart, Metalvalue, France

3D printing is entering the mainstream, not only in the manufacture of consumer products, but also in the production of demanding industrial applications.
Riding on the wave of recent technological advances and facilitated by the proliferation of powder metallurgy on which it relies for feedstock, 3D printing with metals is no longer science fiction, but reality.
Some industries, such as aerospace, biomedical and automotive, are already fully exploiting the advantages which this novel manufacturing method affords (customisation, minimal scrap, etc.), while others are slowly but steadily understanding and realising its potentials.

This discussion-based workshop will open with a broad ‘state of the art’ overview of recent developments in additive manufacturing processes for metals, followed by three short presentations revealing some of the opportunities that await to be seized upon across the industrial landscape.

Join us to discover how 3D printing could revolutionise your business.
