26 July 2016The Manufacturing Technology Centre will be identifying the opportunities & challenges of additive manufacturing as part of a superb two-day conference programme at EDS at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on 19-20 October 2016.
‘Designing for the Freedom of Additive Manufacturing’ will be the subject for Senior Research Engineer Andrew Triantaphyllou in the Eureka Conference.
Additive Manufacturing is a niche manufacturing process that is already being used to make end-use parts in many industry sectors, but the challenge is how should you design for it? Andrew will give examples of when and why AM is a good choice of manufacturing method, and also the new mindset, workflow and software that is needed to design for it.
With a number of expected future developments in design for AM, Andrew will deliver a presentation from 11:15-12:00 on Wednesday 19th October on how and when AM can add value within your business models.
