- The event is the only executive conference focused on Additive Manufacturing for the aerospace industry
Chicago, Illinois – Sciaky, Inc., a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading providers of additive manufacturing solutions to the aerospace and defense industries, announced today that it will sponsor and chair the second annual Additive Aerospace Summit in Los Angeles, CA. The event is the only dedicated executive conference focused on additive manufacturing for the aerospace industry.
The summit includes four sessions that will delve into the technical challenges, adoption process, standards and qualifications, as well as growth strategies for companies that want to remain competitive in the evolving aerospace additive manufacturing/3D printing sector. Executives from Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, NASA, Pratt & Whitney, Raytheon and GKN Aerospace are scheduled as featured speakers.
As the summit chair, Sciaky has been responsible for many key metal 3D printing/additive manufacturing advances in the aerospace and defense industries. Its groundbreaking Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process has been a commercial success and key driver of several high profile research and development (R&D) projects involving the Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Air Force, Lockheed Martin, DARPA and Boeing. Sciaky’s EBAM technology allows manufacturers to save significant time and costs on the production of large-scale parts and prototypes, up to 19 feet in length, made of virtually any metal, including high-value refractory alloys like titanium and tantalum.
“Sciaky is proud to sponsor and chair the 2014 Additive Aerospace Summit,” said Mike Riesen, general manager of Sciaky, Inc. “Additive manufacturing and 3D printing is going to play a major role in the aerospace industry for the foreseeable future, and Sciaky is firmly committed to further EBAM innovation.”
The 2014 Additive Aerospace Summit takes place November 3-6 at the Downtown Los Angeles Doubletree Hilton. For more information, visit http://www.informationforecastnet.com/events/add-aero.
