SpeedNews hosted the Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Briefings (AMB) the day prior to its annual Aerospace Manufacturing Conference
. For 2016, this event will be integrated into the agenda of the Aerospace Manufacturing Conference.
Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing, is considered by many to be the next "Disruptive Technology" and has the potential to alter the aerospace manufacturing landscape. AM is now moving out of its early days of plastics and polymers and moving strongly into metals manufacturing. The revolution is well underway and changing forward-thinking manufacturers today.
SpeedNews Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Briefings (AMB) focused on production and certification opportunities/challenges rather than technical details of various AM technologies. The Aerospace Manufacturing Briefings were designed to equip aerospace leaders with necessary information for various business decisions they must make to address their own AM plans and to get a perspective on how the AM supply chain is evolving.
AMB provided delegates the chance to interact with innovative leaders in the aerospace manufacturing market, and listen to discussions pertaining to additive manufacturing case studies, material usage, productivity, industrialization challenges, and industry certification with this emerging technology.
