3D Printing Materials Conference on 17 and 18 April
3D printing is still growing rapidly. In recent years, the production method has grown into a production technology with a thousand applications spread over a very diverse user audience. The further development of new materials not only influences the quality of the 3D printed end product, but also opens up new markets and has a positive influence on the price level of the materials used.
The successful implementation of 3D printing in different sectors will depend on materials tailored to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process includes the type, quality, strength and cost of materials, but also, for example, the selection of marketing channels relating to the packaging of the final product.
Since each user group and application needs its own specific materials, the market has enormous potential: it seems that hardly a day goes by without new materials being added to the 3D-printing palette.
At the same time, however, it raises many related questions: what developments can we expect in the near future? Which markets are affected in the short term? How can materials be produced cost-effectively?
The 5th edition of the 3D Printing Materials Conference will be held on April 17th and 18th at the Bightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen. It is an initiative of Jakajima.
The event is a platform for the exchange of information on market requirements, research interests and current results, skills and resources. The aim is to facilitate the establishment of future partnerships. Academics, engineers, designers and managers are invited to give lectures on their state-of-the-art developments and future perspectives or to show their products and offers as exhibitors.
Polymers and new materials, the application of polymers in 3D printing and multi-material 3D printing are just some of the topics that will be covered.
