With the continuing growth, expansion of real-world applications and increasing interest in 3D printing from moldmakers across the country, it is no wonder that my parent company, Gardner Business Media, launched an Additive Manufacturing supplement a few years ago. Today, that supplement has grown into a digital-first magazine and conference. In addition to MoldMaking Technology, I also contribute to this publication. And so, I believe it is important to let you know of this year's Additive Manufacturing Conference (AMC) 2016, presented by Additive Manufacturing Magazine. The AMC is taking place during IMTS on September 13-14th, and its agenda includes presenters from Autodesk, DMG MORI, Optomec, EOS, Caterpillar and Karma Machining and Manufacturing.
The two-day event will offer attendees unique ways to connect with leading suppliers, end-users and researchers of industrial applications of additive manufacturing technologies. It includes 20 technical sessions examining design, material, machinery and applications technology used in metal additive manufacturing. Registration to the AMC also includes access to the more than 2,000 exhibiting companies at the IMTS. For a look at the additive technologies being showcased at IMTS, click here.
Specific AM Conference topics include lightweighting, robotic additive manufacturing, combining additive and traditional manufacturing, software, automation and much more.
The AMC is dedicated to exploring the ways that additive technologies can be implemented in an industrial setting, offering technical insights on additive manufacturing technologies past and present, as well as the future impact and potential applications of emerging technologies. In addition to the technical sessions, attendees will have access to the more than 20 sponsors who will be showcased in the exhibit/networking room where continued conversations can be conducted in a more relaxed setting.
