CONFERENCE TO FOCUS ON THE INDUSTRIALISATION OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

08-03-2019

Unlimit3D is a new two-day conference on additive manufacturing and 3D printing that will be held on 14th and 15th May at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre alongside Austech, Australia’s premier advanced manufacturing and machine tool exhibition.

Colocated with National Manufacturing Week, Austech will again feature a special dedicated exhibition area, the Additive Manufacturing Pavilion, which will showcase the latest innovations in additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

The Unlimit3D conference will focus on the industrialisation of additive manufacturing, featuring expert speakers who have implemented this technology in real-world production processes. Their experiences and insights, the challenges they have faced, and the benefits of applying additive manufacturing will be fully explored. Delegates will hear first-hand the trials and tribulations of innovating in this space from companies that can offer practical examples.

AMTIL has assembled a wide-ranging line-up of speakers for Unlimit3D.

The opening keynote address will be delivered by Rob Gorham, Executive Director of America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute at the US’s National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining. Gorham was formerly Senior Manager of the Manufacturing Exploration and Development Group at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, and so has a wealth of experience in the application of additive manufacturing in cutting-edge advanced manufacturing processes.

“3D printing is a game changer,” says Shane Infanti, CEO of AMTIL. “This conference will assist local companies to innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. A further opportunity exists post-conference to engage with renowned international experts who will hold workshop sessions in the week following the Austech exhibition.”

Unlimit3D is sponsored by the Additive Manufacturing Hub, the industry-driven collaborative network set up to foster and grow the additive manufacturing sector. Led by AMTIL and generously supported by the Victorian Government, the Additive Manufacturing Hub has been established to grow and develop additive manufacturing capability.

With additive manufacturing continuing to revolutionise the manufacturing industry, the focus on additive manufacturing will be more comprehensive than ever at Austech 2019.

The Additive Manufacturing Pavilion will feature demonstrations of the latest 3D printers and services from a range of companies and organisations that lead the field of additive manufacturing. Exhibitors in the Additive Manufacturing Pavilion will include: 3D Printing Systems, 3D Systems Asia-Pacific, Bilby 3D, CSIRO, Emona Instruments, EOS Singapore, evok3d.com, Freedspace, GoProto (ANZ), Headland Machinery, Imaginables, Konica Minolta, Markforged, MSC Software, Rapid Advanced Manufacturing, Raymax Lasers, Renishaw Oceania, Thinglab, and Zeal 3D.
