3D printing is a manufacturing process that has been used by Industry for about thirty years. Its increasing popularity raises many questions because, while this technology generates many economic opportunities, it also creates threats for designers. How can the development of this technology, which is both vector of innovation and counterfeiting, be accompanied?
Health sector is subject to strict regulations that are evolving rapidly. Additive manufacturing brings many important benefits in the health sector: mass customisation, integration of complex forms and structures, waste minimization, ondemand manufacturing, yet this sector is submitted to very strict regulations. What are the certification standards and rules? What does the European Commission suggest in terms of legislation to reinforce the safety, the traceability and the transparency?
Reserved for Industry for a long time, additive manufacturing is currently experiencing a small
revolution: lower prices, more technologies and potential applications, increasing use in many sectors, etc. Aniwaa will present a selection of 3D printers focused on major trends in the additive manufacturing industry: large volume 3D printing, metal parts production, rapid resin prototyping, and high strength plastic printing. The conference will end with a focus on the Asian market. Our exhibitors will have the best solutions for any project you have in mind!
Plastic and metal are currently the most widely used materials in additive manufacturing because they present real interests for many industry sectors but that was before new materials came on the scene... These materials are still fairly unknown and complex with multiple properties. The use of these new
materials opens up new industrial possibilities and perspectives with applications in various areas.
Recent advances in additive manufacturing technologies permit new and very broad perspectives
to be considered to produce electronic equipment using polymers, ceramics, and metals. This paper will provide you with all key information to produce additive manufacturing parts integrating electronic components.
