Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace & Space Conference

Birmingham, United Kingdom


The Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace & Space conference is returning for its sixth edition - the premier forum for AM users, R&D experts and industry partners within the aerospace and space industry. The 2020 meeting will take place in Birmingham, a city that sits in the heart of Midlands Aerospace - with the region home to over 25% of UK aerospace industry, 7% per cent of Europe's and 3% of the global market.

AM for Aerospace is the leading conference platform for ensuring opportunities in high value manufacturing are not squandered and so that the aerospace industry is prepared to tackle the roadblocks of industrialisation of AM technology.

Over the course of three days - which includes an exclusive visit the Siemens/Materials Solutions advanced manufacturing site in Worcester - the conference provides a platform to support opportunities in high value manufacturing and help prepare the aerospace industry to tackle the roadblocks of industrial digitisation.

We sincerely hope you can join us

Reasons to attend Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace & Space

  • Hear exclusive case studies from industry leaders who are already achieving quality assurance on a serial scale - helping you to improve your own component characteristics on an industrial scale with repeatable, predictable quality every time
  • Adopt lessons learned from a variety of economically quantifiable case studies delivered by OEMs, describing how they were able to leverage AM technology to achieve feasible economic returns
  • Discover how supply chain is now developing in a way that will encompass Additive Manufacturing at Primes, Tier-1s, Tier-2, and downstream suppliers - enabling you to situate your organisation in a way that is evolving with market demand
  • Hear the latest strategies used by industry leaders in their own projects to achieve material input and process certification so that you can achieve scalability and consistency in your own AM processes
