for the first time in North America, Polymers
for 3D Printing, a new two-day conference from AMI which aims to explore
the developments, production and applications of innovative polymers and
compounds for 3D printing and other rapid manufacturing technologies. The event
takes place February 4-5, 2020 at the Westin Cleveland Downtown in Cleveland,
3D printing, also known as
additive manufacturing, is growing globally with increasingly customized
materials being used to fulfil the expanding scope of applications. The
technology is being utilized 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
Expert speakers will cover 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 will examine 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
will also analyze the rapidly evolving materials demands of the 3D printing industry
and identify new market opportunities.
The conference will provide valuable information and contacts for anyone
involved in the development of specialized polymers for 3D printing, the
extrusion of filaments, or the rapid production of prototypes or finished
In addition to the busy program of informative presentations, the event will
provide excellent networking opportunities during the refreshment breaks and
evening drinks reception, which take place in a dedicated exhibition area.
