CECIMO organises on 17 September 2019 during EMO Hannover 2019 the “International Conference on Additive Manufacturing”.

The conference will look at the latest productivity solutions in the additive manufacturing (AM) market, especially for its industrialization. On stage you will listen to industry key leaders, who will share their views on where industrial AM stands today.

Productivity has indeed become one of the trendiest topics in the AM industry. Now that the technology has moved beyond prototyping and found its first serial production applications, businesses are analysing aspects such as efficiency, repeatability and speed. Any advancement on any of these will undoubtedly unlock a myriad of opportunities. The race to push the industrial boundaries of the technology has truly begun.
