Additive Next 2019Summit program

4–5 June 2019

Additive Next 2019 is featuring leading experts in the industry, covering the complete AM-value chain – from metal powder development to finished AM-components. The two-day programme (lunch-to-lunch) will address some of the key trends in Additive Manufacturing, as well as some of the key challenges faced when industrializing the technology and moving from research & development into serial production. Learn about the latest developments in materials, design, printing, software, automation and robotics - and how to ramp up to industrial scale without compromising quality of output.

There will also be several break-out sessions with different key themes related to the industrialization of AM, where you will be able to select the most relevant topics for you. Of course, there will also be time for networking and social activities, including a conference dinner on the evening of June 4.
