As part of the 3D-Action project, a series of seminars are organized to enhance understanding and generate interest in additive manufacturing. The seminars are held in Swedish.
Additive manufacturing of single components is already mastered by many, but how do you go about scaling up production? Find out at 3D-Action's fifth insight seminar, "Industrialisation of additive manufacturing" on September 12!
When: Tuesday September 12, at 9.30-15.30
Where: Trollhättan, Sweden
Cost: Free of charge
Last day to register: September 5
How does 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, contribute to industrial sustainability? That was the big question at 3D-Action’s fourth seminar, which took place in Borås on April 25.
Additive manufacturing opens up entirely new possibilities for design and product development. However, for optimal results, the design must be adapted to the manufacturing method. That was the theme of 3D-Action’s third seminar offering insights into successful additive manufacturing.
At this event, the focus was on how additive manufacturing can give your company competitive advantages and contribute to increased profitability. University lecturer Henrik Barth talked about "business models for additive manufacturing". Robert Turesson at CEJN talked about shorter lead times and more efficient production, and Lars-Ola Normark at GKN Aerospace Engine Systems talked about new business opportunities with additive manufacturing. The day ended with a workshop. The venue of the day was the ASSAR Industrial Innovation Arena in Skövde.
At the first seminar, the aim was to provide better knowledge and understanding of the different additive manufacturing techniques for both metallic and polymeric materials. Lars Nyborg from Chalmers talked about the advantages and possibilities of Powder Bed Fusion, Anders Snis, GE Arcam EBM, talked about the advantages and possibilities of Electron Beam Melting, EBM. Jan Johansson from RISE talked about large-scale material extrusion (FDM). The venue of the day was RISE in Mölndal, and the participants also got a tour of the Application Center for Additive Manufacturing.
3D-Action has also arranged three digital breakfast seminars, with different themes and presentations from companies that shared their experiences in additive manufacturing.
The seminars are arranged by 3D-Action, a project aiming to increase awareness and knowledge about additive manufacturing and its benefits for small and medium-sized companies in Västra Götaland region.
The project partners are: RISE, Chalmers, IUC Sweden, IUC Väst, IUC Sjuhärad, IDC West and GTC, with support from Västra Götalandsregionen (VGR) och the European Regional Development Fund.
