Future Factory Series: 3D Printing & Additive Manufacturing | Tuesday 28th April 2015

Engineers’ and designers have been using 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing
technology for more than a decade, manufacturing everything from medical implants to
automotive parts. This year’s 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing conference will
provide delegates with much needed insight into the world of advanced technology, and
how to innovate, develop and enable crucial business growth. By sharing case studies from
the UK’s leading manufacturers, delegates will have the opportunity to learn about the
developments in a constantly advancing sector, what equipment is suited to their needs, the
printing process, from initial design to finished product, and what materials are available. By
understanding the benefits of using 3D printers and Additive Manufacturing for innovative
to standard projects, manufacturers can expand their target market and move towards the

• How 3D printing/additive manufacturing can be part of a structured programme towards
manufacturing growth
• What equipment is available for your sector
• What materials can be worked with
• The process of setting up 3D and additive manufacturing equipment and what the running costs
• What legal aspects need to be taken into consideration when using advanced technology
• What the process of 3D printing looks like – from initial design to finished product
• How you could be saving time and costs by using less raw material, not having to worry about
costly retooling, and reducing assembly
