3rd Munich Technology Conference on Additive Manufacturing
This year, the 3rd Munich Technology Conference (MTC3) at Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany will take place on October 8-10, 2019. Organized by Oerlikon, together with its partners GE Additive, Siemens, Linde, McKinsey, TÜV SÜD and TUM, the conference titled “Additive Manufacturing: Accelerating the Industrialization – A Reality Check” will feature top speakers from the industry, academia and political sectors.
As an esteemed member of the press, we would like to invite you to join us at this industry-defining event. You will have the opportunity to connect with thought leaders within the dynamic field of additive manufacturing (AM) and inform your readers about the major trends and technical developments shaping it.
AM is driving the next industrial revolution. Ever more industries are embracing its potential in their manufacturing and understanding how it can help solve some of their toughest challenges. As the shift continues, more opportunities arise, and bring with them the critical necessity for industrialization. A reality check of this endeavor is our focus at the MTC3.
Throughout the conference, industry leaders, scientists, engineers, equipment manufacturers, software vendors, educators and government officials will participate in discussions aimed at understanding the challenges for advancing the application of additive manufacturing in various industries. There will also be a new pre-conference networking event in collaboration with the 3D printing Cluster, offering a platform for 3D start-ups to pitch their ideas.
Technical University of Munich, Oerlikon, GE Additive and Linde to establish additive manufacturing cluster in Bavaria
The Technical University of Munich (TUM), Oerlikon, GE Additive and Linde are collaborating to create an additive manufacturing cluster. This cluster is a grouping of companies and organizations that will conduct research on and develop additive manufacturing technology from a single hub location.
Additive manufacturing is transforming markets. Scalability, cost and production efficiency present challenges to the commercialization of this rapidly evolving technology. Its progression from visionary technology to mainstream commercialization will be the key topic of discussion at the 3rd annual Munich Technology Conference on Additive Manufacturing (MTC3) October 8-10, 2019, at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. Speakers will look at technical and regulatory challenges surrounding the technology today and assess the role of innovation in the future of this exciting field.
