Widening the Adoption of AM in Advanced Manufacturing
The 10th Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace, Defence & Space will take place in the new location of Bristol, in 2024. Join us to gain world-class expertise from leaders within the West of England's aerospace, advanced engineering and digital manufacturing hub, including DE&S, GKN Aerospace, and Babcock.
As the UK's largest aerospace cluster, with more AM users from the defence and space community, Bristol is the optimal location to bring all the stakeholders from the Advanced Manufacturing and 3D Printing ecosystem together to address the current challenges, including:
Promotion of sustainability in additive manufacturing processes
Digitisation of AM processes
Procurement issues in deploying additive manufacturing solutions
Leveraging emerging AM technologies in process monitoring to maximise quality
The testing and qualification of structures built with additively-designed materials
Post-production quality assurance ensuring that materials are checked in a way that is cost-effective
NEW for 2024
More interactive sessions panel discussions and roundtable discussions to explore the key issues in the adoption of AM. Allowing the creation of tangible solutions that suit different sectors without the sharing of intellectual property
Innovative academic perspectives from leading engineering universities and AM users from commercial sectors such as automotive and healthcare
Pre-event site visit to GKN Aerospace Global Technology Centre where you will have a guided tour and see live demonstrations of the factory floor, powder rooms and the 3D printers used to support wider aerospace projects.
Pre-event short-course dedicated to implementing Additive Manufacturing for critical applications.
Conference workshops on enabling digital integration to support AM projects, Integrating autonomous systems into Additive Manufacturing and Changing Procurement Cultures to Speed Up the Adoption of AM.
Key Themes Include:
Certification and standardisation strategies to deliver critical assurance for equipment designed for AM materials
In-orbit manufacturing challenges and solutions
Training engineers and designers to 'think in additive manufacturing' terms to utilise AM's full potential
Innovation and new technologies developing additive manufacturing for defence, space & aerospace
Commercialisation of research and developing short-term additive manufacturing strategies
