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 the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
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.
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 tradeshows.
“This technology’s biggest potential lies in the hands of manufacturers, those that can innovate ways to evolve part production through those technologies,” said Dave Necessary, Event Director. “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.”
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.
The AMC program includes technical sessions examining design, material, machinery and applications technology used in additive manufacturing. Specific topics include hybrid CNC machines (combining additive and subtractive manufacturing), large scale 3d printing, multi-jet fusion, light weighting, safety, advanced materials, and much more. Technical presenters include thought leaders from OEMs, leading additive manufacturing job shops, machinery suppliers and cutting-edge research outfits.
“We are committed to industrial applications of additive manufacturing,” said Dave Necessary, Event Director. “The Additive Manufacturing Conference is the only 3D printing event that focuses exclusively on end-use part production. Being at IMTS lets us showcase how revolutionary this technology is for manufacturing and bring it directly to those who have already adopted AM and those that are significantly invested in adding it in the near future.”
