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.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is entering more and more areas and thus affecting our daily life. This presentation will provide insight into the fields that need to be addressed so AM can enter high volume markets like automotive production. Major questions will be addressed, such as how new business models can be realized or how automation and AI will help increase the implementation of AM in or near assembly lines. Real examples of current use and an outlook of future developments at BMW Group will show the impact of these digital production technologies.
