The 2nd edition of Polymers for 3D Printing was held at the MELIÁ in Düsseldorf, Germany on 11-12 December 2019. This two-day conference from AMI explores the development, production and application of innovative polymers and compounds for 3D printing and other rapid manufacturing technologies.
3D printing is growing globally with increasingly customised materials being used to fulfil the expanding scope of applications. The technology is being utilised in the design, prototyping and production of industrial and consumer goods, with diverse applications ranging from household appliances, healthcare and mechanical parts to building & construction and transportation.
Expert speakers covered the latest developments in plastics resins and compounds for a variety of 3D printing and rapid manufacturing methods to accelerate product development and production.
The event examined incumbent materials, including ABS, PLA and PETG, together with new high-performance polymers and compounds with added functionality. These are helping to improve productivity, boost performance, add value, meet sustainability requirements and open up new markets. Speakers also analysed the rapidly evolving materials demands of the 3D printing industry and identified new market opportunities.
The conference will provide valuable information and contacts for anyone involved in the development of specialised polymers for 3D printing, the extrusion of filaments, or the rapid production of prototypes or finished products.
In addition to the busy programme of informative presentations, the event provided excellent networking opportunities during the refreshment breaks and evening drinks reception, which took place in the dedicated exhibition area.
Polymers for 3D Printing is also CPD accredited, this means delegates attending the above course can request a CPD Certificate of Attendance and can record their attendance towards their formal CPD requirements for their professional body, institute or employer.
