Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace & Space Conference

Europe's Premium Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and 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

  • Adopt lessons learned from a variety of economically quantifiable case studies delivered by OEMs and Downstream Suppliers - describing how they were able to leverage AM technology to deliver feasible economic returns
  • Understand how the AM and digital manufacturing market is developing in Europe and internationally - to ensure that your own manufacturing process remains competitive and able to deliver repeatable and high quality components
  • Increase automation in your manufacturing processes to benefit from the cost and timing saving benefits that AM provides, by networking with and learning from AM pioneers and innovation leaders
  • Hear exclusive case-studies from industry leaders on how cutting-edge collaborative industrial research projects are advancing opportunities of additive manufacturing, and use this to inform your own approach to industrial AM

Key Agenda themes will include:

  • Certification and standardisation strategies delivering critical assurance for defence and aerospace applications
  • Space, air, land and sea applications for additive manufacturing processes
  • Complete production cycle evaluation and assessment of through-life costs
  • Training engineers to 'think in additive manufacturing' terms to utilise AM's full potential
  • Innovation and new technologies developing additive manufacturing for defence & aerospace
  • Commercialisation of research and developing short-term additive manufacturing strategies
  • The National Additive Manufacturing Strategy and its consequences for the defence & aerospace agency
