Additive Manufacturing Conference 2018 Registration Now Open
In case you missed it: the leading event for industrial 3D printing will co-locate with IMTS 2018, North America’s largest manufacturing show.
Registration is now open for the Additive Manufacturing Conference (AMC 2018), scheduled for September 11–12, 2018. This year’s conference is returning to North America’s largest manufacturing event, the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
The 5th annual conference falls on the heels of the inaugural 3D Printing Workshop at NPE2018, making Additive Manufacturing Media the only brand with events at the nation’s largest manufacturing and materials trade shows.
With a program curated by the editors of Additive Manufacturing Magazine, the conference focuses on industrial applications of 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts. Presenters and exhibitors include HP, UL, Jesse Garant Metrology, Desktop Metal, Hybrid Manufacturing and more.
- Combining Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing
- Multi-Jet Fusion
- Large Scale 3D Printing
“This technology’s biggest potential lies in the hands of manufacturers, those that can innovate ways to evolve part production through those technologies,” Dave Necessary, Event Director at Gardner Business Media, says. “That’s why we’ve committed to bringing programming to places like IMTS that allow us to demonstrate how far the technology has integrated into production and to show how much farther it can go.”
Additive Manufacturing Conference registration includes:
- Complete access to all Additive Manufacturing Conference technical sessions
- A pass to the IMTS 2018 exhibit hall—featuring more than 2,400 exhibitors, including the Additive Manufacturing Pavilion
- Professional networking during meals, breaks and the reception
- Conference Proceedings
About the Additive Manufacturing Conference: Presented by Gardner Business Media’s Additive Manufacturing Magazine and Modern Machine Shop, the Additive Manufacturing Conference is a two-day technical conference, exhibit hall and business networking event focused on the industrial applications of additive technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts.
To achieve the ultimate capability and level of productivity from your wire EDM on a consistent, repeatable and reliable basis, regular maintenance is a required task.
Both copper and graphite provide approximately the same end result, so it is important for a shop to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each material in order to discover what would work best in their shopfloor environment.
While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
