The RAPID + TCT 2019 Conference will be taking place in Detroit from May 20th to 23rd. North America’s premier 3D printing conference and event has just announced its conference schedule. Running since 1990, this event brings together the global Additive Manufacturing industry for a frank exchange of ideas, networking, discovery, and learning.
Over 150 industry experts will give over 110 presentations on all aspects of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing. Thought leaders, researchers, and practitioners will present on machines, applications, new processes, materials, research and the latest developments in the field. Real life examples rooted in experience will show you how 3D printing can be used to reduce time to market, lower costs, lightweight parts, create complex geometries and textures and be used in manufacturing.
Renowned firms such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and GE Additive will showcase their AM expertise and ongoing projects. NASA, U. S. Army Research Laboratory, Oak Ridge Research National Laboratory, and The University of Delaware will bring you the latest in cutting edge research.
The expansive number of presentations means that whatever sector you’re in you are likely to find an industry leader giving a meaningful presentation germane to your work. What’s more, events have now been labeled: Novice, Intermediate or Expert to let you select the event that most suits your experience level.
Special attention will be paid to the rapidly growing field of medical and biomedical 3D printing applications. This is one of the fastest growing areas in our industry. Deservedly it has its own RAPID + TCT’s Medical Manufacturing Innovations Program (MMI). You can see the details of this now expanded event here.
An entirely new conference track this year is Automotive. The uses of AM in the automotive industry will be discussed. With car companies taking a renewed interest in using AM to manufacture parts on passenger cars this is the right time to learn about the latest developments.
For developments that are further out, there is also an emerging AM processes track. For people who don’t wish to attend the conference portion of the event, there is an AM Technical Insights Forum on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
We want to welcome you to the RAPID + TCT 2019 Conference, please learn more here.
