Inside 3D Printing Berlin Topics

Aerospace: Metal applications will play an increasingly important role in the aerospace sector. Aircraft manufacturers such as Airbus and Boeing have specific requirements concerning the use of additive manufacturing for flying parts, whereas the use and implementation of the technology and quality requirements play a leading role.

Automotive: Additive Manufacturing can be of great benefit for the automotive market, particularly special applications for extremely light multifunctional components. The project Genesis has already been presented at the Geneva Motor Show – learn more about it at Inside 3D Printing. Experience practical presentations about applications for the production of series components!

New systems / technologies: What’s the status quo and how does the future look? The market offers a great number of new features for existing systems, but also new technologies are coming into the market. Discover more about the status quo and changes that will occur in the near future.

Political classification: Additive Manufacturing is not only from a technical, but also from a political point of view, seen as a future technology. What steps have to be taken in the future from a political side? At Inside 3D Printing you will get answers to this!

Regulations / Standards: Regulations and standards are the base of all technologies. Which are the global relevant activities to prepare regulations? Get an overview here!

Research topics: This year, we will have many interesting research topics on properties of plastics, metals and ceramics as well as design rules. Additionally research activities at different research centres will be displayed, so that participants get an overall overview about the topics in process in Germany.

Research funding: Research funding – national and international – plays an important role in the development of new ideas when the product is used across sectors. The aim is to achieve a Unique Selling Proposition through a specific use of existing opportunities. The European Union offers many approaches in its programme “Horizon 2020” (H2020), but different funding opportunities exist depending on the need, company size, internationality, etc. Obtain an overview about the different programmes and hear some examples of results from running projects.

Service providers: Service providers, the interface between new ideas and the production of parts, ensure the implementation of products by means of the existing technologies. In order to do so, they provide know-how and machine capacities. The combination of requirement-oriented construction, experience, knowledge about processes, materiel processes and rework is what makes a product successful. Get an outlook about how to „do the right things right!“ and take the chance to see service providers share their experience with you!

Space Application: Once a rocket has taken off, there is no way back! In space, repairs are almost impossible! Requirements for materials are accordingly high and weight plays an important role. Every saved “gram” will increase the payload. Additive Manufacturing seems therefore predestined to be used in space. Gain an insight into the upcoming challenges to establish the technology for rockets and other structures, as well as the existing AM machines on the ISS.
