Time: 2PM London/3PM CET

A study of the MasterPrint™ manufacturing process and applications that work.

Can We 3D-print This Instead?
It is the quintessential manufacturing question of the 4th industrial revolution and also likely the most controversial.

As large format additive manufacturing (AM) gains momentum in the aerospace, defence, wind and marine industries, the true technology readiness varies wildly over various applications.

Focusing on reinforced thermoplastics, a detailed step-through of the MasterPrint™ process will correlate traditional manufacturing engineering to design challenges for AM parts.

Through a number of case studies and design examples, this presentation will analyse what makes a good candidate for large format printing.
The presentation will also discuss how future advances aim to reduce the cost and risk to widen the application base.

Please join us to learn about large-format polymer additive manufacturing process and what constitutes a quality project candidate.
