EXPLOITING THE PERFORMANCE GAINS OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IN AEROSPACE, DEFENCE & SPACEIt is our pleasure to announce the return of the premier forum in Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace, Defence and Space which is set to take place in London, 21st – 23rd February 2017.
With the potential to transform military supply chains and profoundly change the dynamics of the aerospace, defence and space industry – 2016 is the year where the promised benefits of Additive Manufacturing have really started to deliver value back to government and business.
Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace, Defence and Space 2017 is primed to help you streamline your supply chain, better manage your material input and process challenges and help you tailor your product strategies. The agenda will cover topics including policy, deployable applications, through-life service and repair, certification strategies and discussions around the new materials and processes that are enabling faster production of larger, lighter and cheaper components.
Providing an opportunity to engage collaboratively with thought leaders, technical experts and strategists in the AM community – hear case-studies and exclusive insight into future strategies to help you take advantage of the performance gains that additive manufacturing can offer the design of your product.

Reasons to attend Additive Manufacturing for Defence & Aerospace 2017
Understand how the latest innovations in WAAM and material input technologies are realising the potential of AM by producing the larger, cheaper and lighter components that will enable you and your own organisation to grow your output
Streamline your supply chain by understanding how the deployable applications of AM, AM for through-life service and repair, and rapid prototyping are delivering quick and cost-effective capability to the point of need
Better manage your material input and process certification challenges by gaining exclusive insight into the latest strategies used by industry leadership
Inform your budgeting decisions and tailor your product strategies by engaging with senior leadership from across the aerospace, defence and space industries and hearing how cutting-edge industry-research collaboration projects are helping to maximise the opportunities for additive manufacturing in these spaces
Agenda themes will include:
Certification and standardisation strategies delivering critical assurance for defence and aerospace applications
Space, air, land and sea applications for additive manufacturing processes
Complete production cycle evaluation and assessment of through-life costs
Training engineers to ‘think in additive manufacturing’ terms to utilise AM’s full potential
Innovation and new technologies developing additive manufacturing for defence & aerospace
Commercialisation of research and developing short-term additive manufacturing strategies
The National Additive Manufacturing Strategy and its consequences for the defence & aerospace agency
"Very valuable. We acquired a state-of-the-art understanding, not only of technologies but also of the data and documentation complexities and eco-system of the AM community"
"Excellent. Well balanced to reflect the wide spectre of AM applicability” “For a starting company in this field this event has been valuable in particular with its applicability to automotive and power generating industries"
"Good cross-section of speakers, interesting inclusion of Space/satellite industry"
"It was a very valuable event, I will be attending any future events"
