Pre Conference

Tuesday 11th July

 

Industrial Realities of
Additive Manufacturing

Grasping the opportunities, understanding the challenges, navigating the pitfalls.

In collaboration with the Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Network, Added Scientific hosted a pre-conference event namely the “Industrial Realities of Additive Manufacturing”. This one-day event was designed for companies who are looking to grasp the opportunities offered by Additive Manufacturing, whilst also helping them to avoid the pitfalls. Steering clear of sales pitches and hype, we selected speakers who brought extensive experience in implementing AM and who could provide clear insights into the industrial realities of the technology. 


This event focused on the hidden challenges of Additive Manufacturing, covering a range of issues such as quality assurance, facility development, training and funding. The speakers discussed the challenges that they have faced and shared the lessons learned.


The day also included a session dedicated to the UK's National Strategy for Additive Manufacturing, led by Innovate UK. This provided insight into the work being done to support UK industry and gave details of opportunities available to UK companies.


In addition, delegates had the opportunity to visit the exhibition, which showcased leading companies in Additive Manufacturing. Drinks and a buffet reception followed the event. 
Below are the speakers for this event.


This event was sponsored by Innovate UK - Knowledge Transfer Network - www.ktn-uk.co.uk
