NWAA & 3DGBIRE – The 2nd of our FREE Member event Delivered by Members!!

20 September 2023 | 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Discover how different industries have adopted Additive Manufacturing into their workflow.

 Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, offers design flexibility, reduced production time, and the ability to use various materials, revolutionizing industries with bespoke, intricate, and sustainable products. It enables decentralized manufacturing, reducing costs, and promoting innovation in sectors like aerospace, healthcare, and automotive. Its unparalleled benefits streamline supply chains, boost efficiency, and push the boundaries of modern manufacturing.


  1. Design flexibility: Additive manufacturing allows engineers and designers to create intricate and complex shapes that were previously difficult to achieve with traditional methods.


  1. Reduced production time: The technology enables the simultaneous fabrication of multiple components, streamlining the manufacturing process and accelerating product development.


  1. Sustainability: Additive manufacturing reduces waste and optimizes material usage, making it a more environmentally friendly option compared to conventional manufacturing.


  1. Decentralized manufacturing: Businesses can produce goods on-demand and closer to the end-users, leading to cost savings in transportation and logistics.


  1. Material versatility: Additive manufacturing can utilize a wide range of materials, from plastics to metals and biocompatible substances, opening possibilities in various industries such as aerospace, healthcare, and automotive.


Additive Manufacturing experts Mike Mead and Jack Davies will be hosting this NWAA Member event at 3DGBIRE. All delegates will be taken to the technical centre and split into groups with Additive Manufacturing experts, Mike and Jack. Each group will go through Additive Manufacturing technology with a tour and live demonstrations. We will be going through manufactures such as Raise3D, Meltio, HP, UltiMaker, miniFactory, Mayku, Lynxter, Photocenrtric, ZEISS, Boston Micro Fabrication, BCN3D, KIMYA and Shining3D and how AM is revolutionising industries
