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

The conference looked at the latest productivity solutions in the additive manufacturing (AM) market, especially for its industrialization. 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.

Our high-level speakers were:

  • David EWING, Renishaw
  • Philip ORIS, SLM Solutions
  • Harrison RAYBOULD, The MTC
  • Patrick MEHMERT, Simufact
  • Marco GÖBEL, Trumpf
  • Stewart LANE, Renishaw
  • Nick CRUCHLEY, The MTC
