3D printing continues to drive advances in the automotive industry, providing shorter lead times, reduced costs, stronger and lighter parts, and more. At RAPID + TCT, you will learn how to:
- Boost your competitive advantage with faster development cycles.
- Reduce your supply chain through part consolidation and design simplification.
- Create tools in days or weeks instead of months.
- Cut costs with generative design, topology optimization, and organic/biomimicking parts
- Produce end-use parts and on-demand spare parts.
Join us May 20-23, 2019 in Detroit, MI and see the largest concentration of 3D technology ever showcased in North America.
RAPID + TCT 2019 will feature an Automotive Day on Thursday, May 23 to showcase the advancements in automotive additive manufacturing – and discuss what the future holds. The below presentations will be held on Thursday as part of Automotive Day. Conference requires additional fee.
Moderator: Lonnie Love PhD, Group Leader – Manufacturing Systems Research Group, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Learn from leading subject matter experts in additive manufacturing representing the automotive and aerospace industries. Discover how additive manufacturing can create opportunities that will drive performance and growth.
CONFERENCE: Additive Manufacturing of Automotive Applications
Additive manufacturing continues to disrupt traditional manufacturing practices. At the RAPID + TCT conference, learn how major automotive manufacturers and suppliers are changing the way they plan for tooling and end product applications by adopting additive manufacturing to fit the needs of an ever-evolving industry.
