The week after Formnext Connect is no less busy, as we’ve got webinars and virtual events pretty much every day, Monday through Friday. Read on to learn more about what’s on tap!

ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing

First up, the ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ICAM 2020), sponsored by ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE), is this week, starting Monday, November 16th and going through Friday the 20th, 8-5 ET each day. It’s the fifth flagship event regarding certification, standardization, and qualification, emphasizing AM industry-specific requirements. There will be panel discussions and symposia, and the recipients of two 2020 ASTM International Additive Manufacturing Awards of Excellence in Research and Standardization will also be announced at the event.

“As additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are adopted by various industries, establishing feedstock-process-structure-property-performance relationships becomes essential for qualification and certification of parts in safety critical applications. This conference will address application specific requirements of various industry sectors in addition to covering the fundamentals of AM process chain.”

You can register for the conference here. Student rates are $225, and it’s $350 for a presenter or scientific committee member. ASTM members pay $450, and non-members pay $500.

GE Additive Webinar Wednesday

At 10 am ET on the 18th, GE Additive is holding the latest in its Webinar Wednesday series, “Challenging Geometries and Digital Workflow for Thin-walled Dental EAP® Abutments.” A dental abutment is a metal piece, typically patient-specific, that connects an implant, via an abutment screw, to the final outer crown. Dr. Mario Kern, the CEO of EAP Abutments, and Joachim Krause, GE Additive’s Senior Global & Key Accounts Director, Dental, will discuss the use of milling technology, combined with additive manufacturing, to fabricate these thin-walled dental abuments.

Additive manufacturing is disrupting a variety of industries and enabling the design and production of new and improved products. In the dental market, EAP ® Abutments is using a combination of additive manufacturing and milling technology to create thin-walled dental abutments that at one time were next to impossible to produce or not economically feasible. Additive manufacturing is enabling EAP Abutments  to create a new group of products through 3D printing.”

Materialise Think-In Launch Event

Also on the 18th, Materialise is holding its Think-In Launch Event, where several company executives—CEO Fried Vancraen, Executive Board Chairman Peter Leys, Materialise Manufacturing VP Jurgen Laudus, and Materialise Software VP Stefaan Motte—will announce new software and hardware solutions that will help customers innovate and create real business value with additive manufacturing. During the first half of the event, which begins at 9 am ET, the results of a Lifecycle Analysis (LCA) comparing the environmental impact of conventional and additive manufacturing will be presented, before the new innovations are launched; these include new Magics 25 features, Materialise Process Tuner software, the e-commerce Materialise Storefront, and more.

“Many view additive manufacturing as a positive force that helps companies to operate more sustainably. However, that’s simply not enough,” said Vancraen. “Moving forward into our fourth decade as a company, the question is not whether AM is a sustainable manufacturing technology. The question becomes: what can we do to make AM more sustainable?”
