Industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing - From Concept to End Product

Industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing - From Concept to End Product

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS), Altair and HiETA Technologies will be holding an event 'Industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing - From Concept to End Product' on 7th June 2016 between 09.00 - 15.00 hours.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers many benefits over traditional manufacturing techniques in the concept and prototyping of designs. AM technology allows the generation of complex geometries and lattice structures to make lighter and more efficient components. Enabling innovative designs, AM is challenging the way objects are designed and manufactured, delivering advantages such as speed, efficiency, lightness and reduced time and cost.

Targeted towards organisations involved in high value design and manufacturing, CFMS, Altair and HiETA will take organisations through the journey from concept to end product, showcasing an example of an AM product it has produced as a collaboration.

Presenting a series of case studies along with the latest academic research, delegates will have the opportunity to hear directly from industry end users, academia and organisations involved in AM. Initial confirmed speakers include Airbus, BAE Systems, GKN and The University of Nottingham. Delivering a wealth of information, the event will specifically highlight and discuss the challenges for AM along with testing and certification for AM products, a key area of interest for organisations.

The event is being hosted at CFMS, who are based at Bristol and Bath Science Park. Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer commented, “This is a great opportunity to hear how industry end users are using AM technology, and how this is being applied to solve challenges. The project between CFMS, Altair and HiETA provides insight into the process of creating a customised design through to the end product.”
