21 June 2022
am for healthAdditive Manufacturing R&D Day
R&D on Additive Manufacturing is all around in the Benelux, applied as well as academic. There is so much going on, that we sometimes lose track of who-is-doing-what or what-is-useful-for-whom. To build new synergies, to capitalise on each other’s expertise and findings, and to avoid duplication, it will be exceptionally useful to listen, watch and learn at the Additive Manufacturing R&D-day. The supply side will be on stage to share their expertise and finding, while all organisations or companies looking for expertise or intelligence on any topic related to Additive Manufacturing are free to join. Matchmaking will be facilitated at the event. Ready to get in touch with your potential clients or to find your next R&D partner? More info and the possibility to register here.

am for healthOpen moment with Binder3D and BYOP
Come to Binder3D during the 3D Delta Week and bring your part, design or idea to discuss the manufacturability with the specialists of Binder3D for free. The specialists of Binder3D can help you with the design, the choice of the most suitable techniques, the right materials and if necessary, also with the final 3D printing process. The specialists will be present all afternoon, so it is not necessary to book a time slot. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you have experience with 3D printing. This is your chance to turn your idea into reality! Don't have a specific product in mind yet? Get inspired by the examples of successfully printed parts and functional products.

Model Based Definition Event
Model Based Definition is the next revolution in the CAD/CAM/CAE domain, using annotated 3D models and technical data packages (3D TDP) as a single source for all design information. The use of 2D drawings is eliminated and the transformation to digital manufacturing is stimulated. The 2D drawing is replaced by 3D PMI. Several brainstorming sessions with ASML suppliers revealed the challenges they face. From this, a list of requirements emerged. Where are we now? What does the roadmap look like? Which other OEMs will switch to this way of operating? The goal of the MBD Solutions Event is to address the compiled requirements and show mature solutions to address the challenges of MBD.

Additive Manufacturing Climate Action Conference
Any manufacturing process has to aim at generating less waste and lowering its environmental impact. Additive Manufacturing has great potential in reducing the need for energy- and resource-intensive manufacturing processes. It also has the advantage of producing less material waste than, for instance, subtractive technologies and has the benefit of cost-effectively fabricating objects on-demand. The path towards sustainable products and production requires significant changes throughout several value chains, impacting product design, material use, production processes, business models, and waste management. The AMCA conference covers the different steps to be taken by the players in the value chain to achieve this. More info and the possibility to register here.

Or is your company or organisation already a (major) player in the field of industrial 3D printing? Then 3D Makers Zone would love to see you on Friday June 24th at their Meetup! Part 1 was a general introduction, in which the plans and wishes of the province were explained. In addition, the needs and mindsets of the 3D printing companies present were inventoried. At Part 2, next Friday 24 June, after an update, the focus will be on generating more concrete proposals for funded projects that companies in North Holland are willing to start together. And it is Friday after all, so the meetup will end with a good beer tasting by De Bierbalie. (0.0 will also be present, of course). More info and the possibility to register here.
