Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
Infocast, the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the additive industry, has announced its inaugural Design for Additive Summit, scheduled for May 6-7, 2014 in Atlanta, GA.
A growing divide separates the requirements for plastic prototyping versus high performance production parts in aerospace/defense, biomedical and automotive. For the 1000-2000 advanced additive materials in the pipeline, ranging from Titanium and steel alloys to carbon fiber composites, ceramics and engineering plastics, tremendous innovation in the design, standards and digital production ecosystem is required to open a global market worth tens of billions in profit.
America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, was referenced by President Obama in the State of the Union Address, January 28, 2014, as being a compelling example of how our nation can seize the lead in the global, high-tech manufacturing sector. America Makes will keynote the Infocast event in May.
Infocast has launched the Design for Additive Summit to bring together the technical leaders, innovation gurus and expert users to assess the state of the art technologies and explore innovative solutions to interlinked challenges. Additive supply chain players will have an opportunity to network with current and future users and buyers of their products and services. OEM design-engineers will gain the latest detailed insights into the development of the standards required for them to more fully adopt additive techniques in their production plans. Software / IT developers, additive contract manufacturers, industrial designers and venture investors will also make for a robust environment for networking around a new paradigm in 3D design tools and platforms.
Speakers include National Center for Defense Manufacturing & Machining, Aerojet Rocketdyne, Lockheed Martin, California State University Long Beach, EOS GmbH – Electro Optical Systems, EOS of North America, Inc., Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, Renishaw, SpaceClaim Corporation and many others.
Attendees have a unique opportunity to join all stakeholders – OEM designers, engineers and quality managers, medical device manufacturers, additive machine makers, software vendors and developers, contract manufacturers & service bureaus, materials suppliers, consultants, and R&D – to connect, build strategic relationships, and gain insight into materials’ standards and qualification timelines and processes.
