3D Printing Materials Conference welcomes Interreg project “Accelerate3” as Exhibitor

About Interreg project “Accelerate3”
In Accelerate3, project partners Chemelot Research Facilities BV, Centexbel, KU Leuven Campus Kulak Kortrijk and TUA West join forces in the development of bio-based materials for Additive Manufacturing. In this way, the project wants to strengthen the specific expertise and test infrastructure with regard to 3D printing from Dutch Limburg and West Flanders. Both regions have a similar economic mix, the majority of which are small and medium-sized enterprises. In addition, they face similar challenges and are active in the field of Additive Manufacturing, with complementary specializations, from polymer formulations to processing to material characterization. Cross-border clustering allows SMEs and SMEs active in Additive Manufacturing to grow in both regions; thanks to Accelerate3, they can count on an extensive and complementary range of test and research infrastructure.

3D Printing Materials Conference 2018About 3D Printing Materials Conference
The 3D Printing Materials Conference [April 17, 2018, Geleen, The Netherlands] The 3D Printing Materials Conference is a platform and information interface enabling an exchange of informations on market requirements, research interests and current results, skills and resources as well as facilitating the building of future partnerships. Academics, engineers, designers, and managers are invited to lecture on their state-of-the-art developments and future prospects or display their products and offers as exhibitor.

The conference focuses on Polymers (new materials), application of polymers in 3D Printing and multi material 3D Printing.
