Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace, Defence & Space Conference

Exploiting the Performance Gains of Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, Defence & Space

It 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.
