Additive Manufacturing Conference Call for Speakers Open
The Additive Manufacturing Conference announced that the call for presentations for the 2020 conference is open. The event will take place September 15-16, 2020 at McCormick Place in Chicago alongside IMTS, North America’s largest manufacturing trade show.
“Our annual call for speakers has turned into a particularly rewarding part of developing our conference,” says Peter Zelinski, Editor-in-Chief of Additive Manufacturing. “Every year, through this call, we end up hearing from people advancing AM – people we weren’t aware of before they contacted us who are excited to share their work.”
This year, the call for speakers will serve a more focused purpose than it has in the past. Conference organizers are looking to the call to elicit presentations specifically from end users of additive manufacturing technology — that is, companies succeeding in a significant way at making production parts or tooling additively, or researchers unaffiliated with a technology supplier who are making important strides in learning what AM can do and how to advance its capabilities.
Additive Manufacturing Conference attendees represent companies of all shapes, sizes and specialties, ranging from multinational OEMs to independent contract machine shops, and covering a wide range of end markets and job titles. Their one common interest is in evolving their application of industrial additive manufacturing technologies.
Speakers receive a complimentary pass to the conference, access to the IMTS exhibit hall, download of the proceedings after the event and an invitation to all networking activities, including the grand reception.
The deadline for papers is April 30, 2020. Abstracts can be submitted online.
While EDM speeds today are impressive, there are a number of machining variables that influence the machining speed of the wire EDM.
Moldmakers need to be aware of how different gating technology can affect their customers when designing a hot runner system into a mold.
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.
