Our 3rd Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & Technology Showcase is designed as an educational & training "Town Hall" forum, where thought leaders & key policy-makers across Military services, defense agencies, & civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions & debate. This year's Summit will focus on the latest revolutionary technologies & innovations being developed to further various additive manufacturing processes & current level of capability, in order to deliver greater flexibility to the Warfighter on the battlefield.
Why You Should Attend the 2019 Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & ShowcaseThrough the use of 3D printing solutions, the Military is able to enhance the maintenance and sustainment capabilities needed to reduce downtime; minimize the costs associated with having to purchase, transport, and store additional resources; offer more operational flexibility to leaders in the field of logistics; and provide units in remote locations with the ability to reduce the size of their supply chains becoming more self-sufficient and agile in isolated and contested environments.
The latest innovation in this field is metal additive manufacturing. This is accomplished by taking a base material, usually in the form of a metal powder and using heat generated by lasers to build a form. Other materials are being explored for additive manufacturing as well. We are beginning to move beyond 3d printing only being extruded plastic polymers and the military is particularly interested in this. The Navy has taken the first steps to explore this technology and the other branches are engaged as well. This forum will offer additive manufacturing solution providers, members from Government, and leaders in academia the opportunity to hear from some of the US Military's most senior and qualified subject matter experts on the future role of additive manufacturing in the Defense industry.
