Additive Manufacturing Conference
Industry leaders will join forces to host Benelux’s first Additive Manufacturing Conference in one place. Grab the opportunity to capture all the potential of digital manufacturing to fuel your company’s growth and use their expert insights to stay ahead of the competition within your industry. What you’ll get from the Additive Manufacturing Conference:
- Insights on Industry 4.0 and how to use 3D printing to embrace the digital manufacturing revolution
- A full day of networking with high-level experts from HP, Materialise, Siemens and BASF
- A space for dialogue, co-creation and individual guidance on your company’s workflows, whether your main concern is scaling up or initial adoption of additive manufacturing
- Showcases and workshops with potential additive partners in your region, including manufacturers, material suppliers, service agencies, and software design companies
Some lectures @ Additive Manufacturing Conference
The Slow Revolution
As factories become smarter and better connected, Additive Manufacturing paves the way towards an end-to-end digital manufacturing process. At the same time, technological advances have led to growing awareness among industrial manufacturers about the opportunities and competitive advantages it creates. It is clear that Additive Manufacturing is moving from hype to reality.
But while Additive Manufacturing is ready to transform the factory floor, which industries will lead the adoption? Which applications will generate the biggest impact? And should we expect explosive growth, or will the Slow Revolution continue?

It’s time for going industrial with AM
Why is it the time to go industrial with AM? This question will be answered and discussed during our plenary session. BASF 3D Printing Solutions supports customers from idea development until the finished product. We will lead you through our collaborations with co-innovation partners in academia and industry. To develop the next generation of material solutions we combine supercomputing power and advanced material sciences. With the largest portfolio of relevant molecules today, our powerful global R&D network, and our collaboration approach we love to create innovative chemistry for the future of digital manufacturing.

The mighty Duct, an end-to-end use case for industrialized additive manufacturing
The additive manufacturing solutions from Siemens integrate hardware, software, data intelligence, and services to optimize the efficiency of entire manufacturing processes, from design and simulation through production planning, execution, quality, and control. This integrated, closed-loop environment, backed by the industry’s leading forces, streamlines every phase of designing and 3D printing serialized parts – with greater scale, higher quality, and less waste enabling industrial companies to bring 3D printed parts to market faster, more cost-effectively, more sustainable, and at higher volumes than ever before.
We will lead you through an example end-to-end use case for industrializing additive manufacturing and show you a combination of Digital Twins for product, production, and performance including MindSphere to enable mid-volume serial plastic parts production using HP Multi Jet Fusion technology to help auto and industrial customers create high-quality 3D printed parts faster; enabling unique product designs, new applications, and digital factories.

The Digital Age of Product Development
Overview of the advantages of adopting digital manufacturing to develop more complex products in less time and with lower investments. Description of how design and print technology will evolve over time and the implications with the world megatrends of automation, aging populations, and urbanization.
Ed Davis, Director of 3D Eco-System Strategy: responsible to identify gaps in the digital manufacturing eco-system, in the mid to long term, and to develop the strategic steps necessary to fill these gaps over time.
