Shaping the Future of Additive Manufacturing - Industrialization of a Future Technology

Shaping the Future of Additive Manufacturing - Industrialization of a Future Technology 

26-27.09.2019 in Paderborn.

The core topic of the event will be the "Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing" and will show the current state of the art as well as the industrial implementation (also for SMEs). In addition, a focus will be placed on the future development of the technology. All sessions will end with an interactive panel discussion in which participants will be able to exchange ideas with experts from industry, research and various associations.

The first day of the conference will conclude with an evening event (dinner / cocktails / music & dance) where there will be plenty of time and opportunity to network.

During the conferences there will be several opportunities to visit the laboratories and production facilities of the University of Paderborn. A small exhibition on additive manufacturing is planned as well.

You can find the conference programme and the schedule of the conference here. Registration is possible via the homepage

 We would be pleased to welcome you in Paderborn.

The OpenHybrid project offers unrivalled flexibility, high quality on parts produced and increased productivity for companies looking into taking advantage of its unique ability to perform both additive and subtractive manufacturing. In recent years the combination of laser-based Additive Manufacturing and Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machining has become increasingly popular, with several machine tool manufacturers exhibiting products based on different machine tool configurations (hybrid manufacturing). The most common hybrid system is based on Directed Energy Deposition (DED) AM processes.

Join us on Wednesday 18th September 2019 for the Open Hybrid Final Event.
