2018 edition

On December 4, 2018, Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen hosted two half-day conferences focused on Additive Manufacturing.
In the morning, during 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, speakers from ION, AMT, Quintus Technologies, PostProcess Technologies and Fraunhofer IPT talked about various aspects related to the often overlooked third step in 3D printing: post-processing.

The talks covered issues, solutions and future trends. The presentation titles included: What kind of Surface Technology is asked for 3D-Metal-Printed items | Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts | Digitized 3D Post-Printing to Enable Additive Manufacturing at Scale | Shortening the post processing chain though use of high pressure heat treatment | Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow.

In the afternoon, AM Integrated Factory Conference focused on current developments in further integration of Additive Manufacturing in production processes. Speakers from Siemens Industry Software, Sirris, TNO, Authentise and AM-Flow talked about Industrial AM for functional parts, Industrializing Additive Manufacturing, Scaling up 3D printing production with automated sorting, to mention only a few presentation titles.

Below you can see the complete program of the day.
