The Manufacturing Technology Centre-based National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, in partnership with Additive Manufacturing UK, is to host the return of Mastering AM, an industrial user-focused conference for the additive manufacturing sector.
The event, on September 7 at the MTC, will bring together additive manufacturing professionals to exchange information, share best practices, and drive industrial AM forward through shared experiences.
Mastering AM is a seminal conference specifically designed for users of additive manufacturing technologies. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from experienced users and industry leaders, gaining valuable insights into a wide range of additive manufacturing processes. The theme for this year’s conference is “Driving industrial AM forward through shared experiences”, emphasising the importance of collaboration and knowledge-sharing within the additive community.
The conference agenda will feature expert user-led presentations covering various topics, including metal powder bed fusion, design for AM and process simulation, polymer additive manufacturing, directed energy deposition, binder jetting, ceramic AM, and the state of AM in the UK (present and future). In addition, there will be supporting activities such as collaborative research and development funding help, SME AM assistance, event exhibitors, and AM expert drop-in sessions.
NCAM’s Ruaridh Mitchinson said, “We are delighted to bring back Mastering AM in collaboration with AMUK and NCAM. This conference serves as a key platform for additive manufacturing professionals to connect, learn from each other and drive the adoption of additive technologies in the industrial sector. With a diverse range of topics and expert speakers, attendees can expect to gain valuable insights and accelerate their additive technology adoption journey.”
