On 18th September 2018, Altair hosted 'Industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing - From Concept to End Product' seminar between 09.00 – 15.30 at the MTC, home to the National Centre for Net Shape and Additive Manufacturing.
Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing has the potential to revolutionise part production processes while offering greater design freedom to engineers. To effectively capitalise on this opportunity, companies need to overcome new design challenges concerning cost, production speed, material wastage and more.
At this free to attend, one day event, our speakers revealed how they are utilising the only generative design toolset built on over 30 years of deep optimisation experience, to innovate through rapid design exploration and the generation of material efficient, production-ready designs for additive manufacturing.
Attendees had the opportunity to hear firsthand how companies including Airbus, GKN, SSTL and more are deploying a simulation-driven design approach to their design for AM processes. Real world examples were shown and discussed, leaving attendees with practical insights that can be directly applied to their own projects.
Attend and Learn
- Attendees Learned how simulation is not only helping drive the design of 3D printed parts and assemblies but also allowing for functional and structural validation early in the product development process
- Saw first-hand how AM is impacting various industries including automotive, aerospace, defense, space and more.
- Understood the capabilities of additive manufacturing and see how simulation technologies can help to take advantage of this potential in your organisation
- Saw industry leading simulation solutions with a track record of producing highly optimised products that maximise the potential of AM
- Learnt about the unique token based licensing system that provides users access to over 150 complementary applications
- Learned how to use additive manufacturing technologies to reduce time to market, produce stronger and lighter parts, improve efficiency and reduce material waste
- Networked with the most experienced and influential community in additive manufacturing and see how they’re addressing the challenges and opportunities presented by additive manufacturing.
- Discovered the latest processes, applications, technologies and research in additive manufacturing.
Who Should Attend
- Engineering Team Leaders, Managers and Directors that are exploring the use of additive manufacturing in their organisation
- Organisations with an interest in the use of additive manufacturing and the stages involved in developing, designing, optimising and manufacturing products
