More 3D Printing Events

Below you will find an overview of all  the 3D Printing Events (and related) organised by Jakajima.


Medical

3D Bioprinting is the utilization of 3D printing and 3D printing–like techniques to combine cells, growth factors, and biomaterials to fabricate biomedical parts that maximally imitate natural tissue characteristics.
3D printing is taking its place with 3D printing solutions for dental, orthodontic, and maxillofacial applications. Advances in 3D printing technology are constantly improving. Whereas manual creation of implants, crowns and prosthetics required a high degree of specialization, 3D printing can quickly and easily create highly accurate models. This provides better fitting, more personalized appliances improving both comfort and efficacy of prosthetics.
3D MedTech printing market can be categorized as medical implants, surgical guides, surgical instruments and hearing aids. The medical implant segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all applications in the coming years.
3D printing is making a name for itself in medicine manufacturing. While it’s hard to foresee the wholesale replacement of current tablet manufacturing processes, 3D printing is expected to find a place in certain niche medications and in personalised tablets.
3D Medical Expo offers a unique platform bringing together European and global companies from the entire 3D Medical supply chain, customers, end-users, developers and researchers.
3D printing is becoming increasingly implemented in medical professions, from surgeons to pharmacists and from dentists to Biomedical engineers. Several uses of the technology are already generating revenue as viable medical businesses, like dental applications, prosthetics and hearing devices.

Food / Agriculture

The 3D printing technology will be fundamental to the way people interact with food in the future. Supermarkets are already testing to 3D print customized cakes, caterers / restaurants are offering printed desserts. However, much research is required to change the hype into reality. Which industries will be influenced by the technology? Which food components can be printed in the near future? And which aspects should be taken into account to ensure safety and maintainability of 3D printed food?
As with every 3D printing application, there is a lot of hype going on with 3D Food printing. Statements like ‘a 3D Food Printer in every home in 2 years time’ can be heard all the time. Also many start-ups introduce 3D Food printers and people can already now eat 3D printed dinners in restaurants, as it happened during the 2016 European edition of the 3D Food Printing Conference. The reality is that a lot of research and development needs to be done. The promises however are huge, both for professional and consumer markets.

Electronics / Sensors

As the world of 3D-printing is evolving, electronics is quickly becoming a new key player. Functional elements such as sensors and switches are now being integrated into 3D-printed products, paving the way for exciting new markets, applications and opportunities. Thought leaders of this emerging market are converging during this conference to share their knowledge and expertise. Learn about 3D-printed embedded electronics in cars, pended optics and the 3D-manufacturing of smartphone antenna’s.

3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing Value Chain

The 3DDE Conference offers design and engineering professionals the chance to learn and to look at design challenges from different perspectives using 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing.
The roads to success in the 3D printing sector will depend on fine-tuning materials to the needs of each application. This fine-tuning process will involve the type and the quality, strength and costs of materials.
Post-processing encompasses all of the actions that are performed after parts are removed from a 3D printer. There are two categories of post-processing
With the growth of AM, more and more organisations are starting to look at the possibilities to integrate this technology in their manufacturing processes.
Fast Facts on the Importance of 4D Printing & Meta Materials. Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is a defining feature of mankind. We moved on from the stone age, to the bronze age, to the age of silicon and plastic. Now we are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter. Two fields emerge strongly: - 4D Printing offers a streamlined path from idea to full functionality. - Mechanical metamaterials are structured materials with mechanical properties defined by their structure rather than their composition.

3D Content – Craftmanship Conference

A 3D Printing content owner / Craftman focuses on the 3D content, irrespective where the 3D model will be 3D printed. This offers new opportunities for product manufacturers, 3D content rich organisations, maintenance engineers, brands, (product) designers, entrepreneurs, gaming industry, merchandising companies, and publishers to monetize their products/designs in new ways.

Automotive 3D Printing Conference

3D Printing / Additive Manuafacturing has already started changing the automotive industry landscape. Many leading brands in the complete value chain exploit this technology now for different purposes. It will have a huge influence in making manufacturing more efficient, will improve the speed to market of certain parts and systems and will decrease the number of conventional steps in the design process.
