AM for Production: AM breaks through in the (high-tech) production chain

AM is in the grand finale to break through in the high-tech and manufacturing industry. During AM for Production on 29 March in the Brabanthallen in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, everything revolves around the breakthrough of this layer-by-layer production technology in the high-tech and manufacturing industry. The programme offers extensive coverage of how OEMs and the supply industry can integrate this fast-establishing technology at this stage.

Knowledge sharing plays an essential role for AM technology to break through within the high-tech and manufacturing industry. AM for Production therefore focuses on a solid knowledge programme with prominent speakers, use cases and best practices. It is the place where the entire chain comes together and where knowledge and experiences are shared to tackle challenges around integration in, among others, existing production environments, product development and engineering processes.

On 29 March, a selection of companies will showcase the state-of-the-art capabilities of AM machines, peripherals, support services, software for AM implementation and delivering high-quality end products. Visitors can also learn from the experiences of others who have gone before them on the road to implementing AM technology.

Inspiring lectures

In a varied lecture program, speakers from leading players in AM will talk about implementing AM in manufacturing companies. For example, Prof Dr Ian Gibson of Fraunhofer Innovation Platform for Advanced Manufacturing at the University of Twente, talks about how his institution helps manufacturing companies overcome the barriers to successful implementation of AM manufacturing.

Hessel Maalderink of ASML talks about the growing number of AM parts in an increasing number of systems being produced. He will also highlight the evolution of AM processes, materials and finishing technologies and how they ensure part quality for this growing demand.

Further in the lecture programme, best practices and use cases will be discussed in the areas of metal 3D printing, applications in the mechanical engineering and food sectors and the importance of smart design. Several Flam3D members will contribute with some exciting presentations: Grindosonic, Bühlmann NV, Guaranteed, Hogeschool Windesheim, 4CCCC, Metal Technics 3D, Amnovis, Fontys and Parts On Demand

The AM knowledge and networking event for high-tech and manufacturing companies

With a strong focus on connection, substantive knowledge transfer, practical cases and supply chain integration, AM for Production is the annual AM networking event for high-tech and manufacturing industries. Here, visitors will come into low-threshold contact with high-end AM machine builders, component suppliers, raw material suppliers, system integrators, peripherals, software and firmware suppliers, startups and knowledge and networking organisations.

Flam3D will also be present at the fair to provide neutral and independent advice to anyone who wants it. Looking for tailored advice for your AM challenge or want to get in touch with the right organisations within the industry? Then be sure to drop by the Flam3D stand with stand number 150.
