WEDNESDAY | SEPTEMBER 15 | 09.00 – 16.00 CET

09.00 KEYNOTES

INDUSTRIAL AM AT SCALE
At this stage of the market, AM at scale already transforms manufacturing in some sectors including aerospace and automotive. This means that open-ecosystems will prevail as the technology hurdles around economics, scale, strength and speed of production fall away. However, AM users and vendors will demand secure ecosystems to gain greater control of their innovation, choice in materials and industrial-scale production at lower costs.

09.45 COMPELLING INDUSTRY BUSINESS & USE-CASE #5, #6, #7

Having a solid and compelling use-case is essential to show a successful approach. Presented are three business and use-cases in a number of secure AM supply chains.

10.30 COFFEE BREAK

10.45 KEYNOTES

INDUSTRIAL AM ON DEMAND
As industries have grappled with supply chain disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, On Demand manufacturing has become an increasingly attractive prospect to service bureaus, print locations, suppliers, and original equipment manufacturers. We are now seeing a shift toward risk-averse manufacturing methods to fortify supply chains. 

11.30 COMPELLING INDUSTRY BUSINESS & USE-CASE #8, #9, #10

Having a solid and compelling use-case is essential to show a successful approach. Presented are three business and use-cases that unlock the full potential of secure AM supply chains. 

12.15 KEYNOTE AND PANEL DISCUSSION

VALIDATING THE AM PRODUCTION PROCESS
To develop strong and efficient AM supply chains, Standards, Certifying and Quality Assurance become increasingly important. All players and partners in AM eco-systems are aware that providing a maximum level of trust in AM is indispensable. 

12.45 KEYNOTES

AM FOR REPAIR — AN OPPORTUNITY TO BOOST INDUSTRIAL SUSTAINABILITY 
AM facilitates the repair, refurbishment, remanufacture and even enhancement of products extending their lifecycle, reducing the company’s costs and bringing the industries a step closer to achieve its (and the EU’s) circular Economy targets. 

13.15 LUNCH BREAK

14.30 PANEL DISCUSSION

AM PRODUCTION PROCESS — IN-HOUSE OR OUTSOURCED?
When choosing between in-house and outsourcing, there are a range of factors to consider — but perhaps the most important is your organisation’s AM strategy. Combining both approaches could also be a particularly efficient way of integrating the technology. For example, companies may have in-house AM design and engineering services, but turn to external print locations for parts.

15.15 KEYNOTE AND PANEL DISCUSSION

EUROPE NEEDS TO EMPOWER ITS INDUSTRIAL REGIONS IN TRANSITION
Regions in industrial transition face specific challenges. Some of these regions are very specific in vertical focus, while some are more horizontal. A large number have officially declared with the European Commission that AM is a key field of focus.
