Download the 2019 agenda to explore the new topics that will be discussed at next year's event.
The event provides a platform to help the AM user exploit the performance gains and economic returns that AM brings to aerospace and space, landscaping key topics such as: Materials & Process Qualification, Certification, IP Protection, Industrial Implementation and Quality Management Systems
In this interview Tim Haidar from Defence IQ catches up with Alan Cox R&D Manager, Airbus
Additive manufacturing has been in place in one form or another for the past three decades and is increasingly becoming a part of the literal fabric of many of the world's core industries. In this interview, we look at the space industry in particular and the benefits that additive manufacturing can have in this sector and potentially the wider manufacturing fold.
Life cycle considerations are becoming increasingly important due to the need to consider sustainability – economy, quality and environment – in industry. But where a machine supplier or a material provider would traditionally conduct this type of analysis on their own, we wanted to develop a new approach clustering the different protagonists involved in the life cycle of one product in order to produce a single combined study.
With this study we would like to present a new form of cooperation – a so called “Life Cycle cooperation”.
How to overcome the challenge of Cost-effective production of optimized retaining brackets for the connection of components in telecommunication satellites?

3D printing – the additive fabrication of objects by depositing and patterning successive layers of material – has been touted as an enabling platform for applications ranging from lighter, more efficient aircraft and advanced prosthetics to homemade firearms and lab-grown organs. Anthony Vicari, Research Associate at Lux Research, provides this brief report on performance improvements in this space and why additional research and development is needed for these processes to reach commercial maturity.
