3D Printing Event 2019 edition summary

On April 16 and 17, 2019, Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands, hosted a two-day 3D Printing Event covering the entire Additive Manufacturing value chain, from 3D Printing design to factory integration and post-processing.

The event included five dedicated conferences, where over 30 speakers from reputed companies and research institutions shared their views, and a two day-expo.

On April 16, 3D Printing Materials Conference and 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference took place. Speakers from DSM, Viscotec, CEAD, Brightlands Materials Center, Green Pac, Design 8, Quintus Technologies, Flanders Make, cards plm solutions, Sirris and UK National Centre for Additive Manufacturing talked about the latest developments in 3D printing materials and design for 3D Printing.

On April 17, 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, AM Integrated Factory Conference & 4D Printing & Meta Materials Conference took place. Among the topics that were discussed, we mention: Automated Surface Finishing for 3D-printed metal parts as enabler for serial production | Industrial Finishing Solutions for High-Volume AM Applications | Programmable Meta-materials Based on Multistable Meta-atoms | A DIY approach to Rapid Liquid Printing and more.
