3D Printing R&D Day image
10:00 - 15:30
3D Printing R&D Day

R&D on Additive Manufacturing is all around in the Benelux, applied as well as academic. It is one of main contributors to the global success of the region when it comes to Additive Manufacturing patents, innovations, and business.

 

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 this event on December 6, 2021 – aka Saint Nicholas for R&D.

 

At this event, the supply side will be on stage. We invite all R&D stakeholders to come and pitch at the event. The demand side should also attend: find your next R&D partner and learn from the heap of expertise available in the Benelux. Make sure to be part of the next innovation … or build your own.

Virtual (R)evolution

Virtual, augmented and mixed reality are the future. Where previously VR, AR and MR were mainly used within the gaming industry, it is now the turn of the (manufacturing) industry. The amount of possibilities of VR, AR and MR are growing fast, think of applications in: training courses, design processes, sales processes, in maintenance and in production lines. It is not without reason that the engineering sector is in the top three growth markets for VR, AR and MR.

 

Virtual (R) evolution is the annual event about industrial applications of VR, AR and MR.

During Virtual (R)evolution, you will discover the possibilities of the latest virtual, mixed and augmented reality technologies for your company. Content creators, software & hardware companies and other experts in the field, present their companies and innovations. Experience and discover VR, AR and MR and listen to case studies during the lecture program. Virtual (R)evolution website

Smart Maintenance Congres

Do you recognize this: your calendar is overcrowded and maintenance activities are determined by the issues of the day. You know that this has to be done differently and that it can be improved. Can planned maintenance help you further? Is predictive maintenance of added value for your company? How do you quantify the return on investment of predictive maintenance? Whether you are responsible for maintenance in your own production environment or taking care of the maintenance of a delivered product, you face similar challenges.

 

During the 7th edition of the Smart Maintenance Congress, you will learn from experts what predictive maintenance has brought them. You will receive tips on how to convince your organization to invest in predictive maintenance. There are more organizations like yours struggling with the same issues. Curious about how they have tackled these? Smart Maintenance Congres website

RapidPro 2021 image

RapidPro 2021
RapidPro is the leading international trade fair featuring solutions for all phases of prototyping, (low-volume) production, and product development

Product development comes with specific challenges and choices. Which techniques are most suitable when your product concept goes into the prototyping phase and eventually, into production? Low-volume, rapid or on-demand production play an important role during this process. Especially when it comes to products that will not be mass produced, you want flexibility in your production process, or the possibility to manufacture customized batches. Flexibility is key, as is the ability to respond quickly to customers’ wishes and requirements. Which techniques do you choose and how do you integrate these into your existing processes?

At RapidPro, multiple additive manufacturing techniques are featured, such as 3D-printing, laser cladding, FDM, EBM and SLS, but also techniques such as CNC milling, casting, and vacuum forming. Solutions such as virtual prototyping, metrology, quality assurance and software are also not forgotten. At the 11th edition of RapidPro, which will be held on December 8 and 9, 2021, you will discover the latest developments in these fields, with a special focus on ROI, materials, soft- and hardware, tooling and quality.

Additive Manufacturing for medical applications – A 3DMED CONSORTIUM CONFERENCE image
11:00 - 15:00
Additive Manufacturing for medical applications – A 3DMED CONSORTIUM CONFERENCE

3DMED kindly invites you to a conference highlighting the potential of Additive Manufacturing for Medical applications. The event gives an overview of the current state of affairs, practical cases and a sneak preview of the (near) future.

 

Additive Manufacturing is well-established in the medical field – with applications ranging from Class I to Class III. However, there is still a huge potential awaiting us; several hurdles – technological, regulatory or organisational – hamper the full use of the available technologies. 3DMED invites you to, during this event, explore the solutions that are existing or under development, and discuss these topics during the networking lunch and afterwards, at the RapidPro fair.

 

The event is free of charge (supported by The European Regional Development Fund, the 3DMED partners and Flam3D). The event is taking place in the context of RapidPro – a 3D Delta Week event. Additive Manufacturing for medical applications conference website

MBD Solutions 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 will be ending soon and the transformation to digital fabrication is going fast. The 2D drawing has been replaced by 3D PMI. Various brainstorming sessions with ASML suppliers have revealed the challenges they face. This resulted in a list of requirements. Where are we standing right now? What does the roadmap look like? Any other OEMs adopt this way of working?

 

The purpose of the MBD Solutions Event is to address the accumulated requirements and demonstrate mature solutions that will help you face the challenges of MBD. MBD Solutions Event website

Additive Manufacturing Climate Action Conference image

Additive Manufacturing Climate Action Conference

The time is now to take action towards more sustainable production

 

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 it has the benefit of cost-effectively fabricating objects on-demand, eliminating the need for warehousing extra goods made with mass manufacturing technologies.

 

The path towards sustainable products requires significant changes throughout several value chains, impacting product design, material use, production processes, business models, and waste management. In order to achieve this there are several steps to be taken by the players in the value chain:

  • A change in mindset
  • Involve the whole value chain in the product creation process (from design to recycling)
  • Life Cycle Assessment
  • Use of Bio Based Materials
  • Implementing (chemical) recycling in the AM value chain

The AMCA conference covers the above mentioned topics and will show some relevant use cases. Additive Manufacturing Climate Action Conference website
