EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Additive Manufacturing of Metal and its Applications
Online Event

It was long ago that additive manufacturing (AM) was having chances to be used in industry only as a rapid-prototyping tool. This meeting will be the occasion to bring together the full supply chain of metal AM, including 3D-printer manufacturers and their suppliers, to understand if challenges, such as the need of post-processing, are finding new solutions or if mixed-metal AM is opening new frontiers of application. End-users from different fields are very welcome to join us, as well and present their needs to the technology providers, to have soon metal AM as a cost-effective and efficient tool in automotive, aeronautics, energy sector, medical applications.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
