Singapore, 5 May 2014 – Leading additive manufacturing experts are due to speak at Asia’s premier 3D printing summit, an upcoming two-day event dedicated to exploit the growth of additive manufacturing products and services which is worth an estimated $3.7 billion worldwide by 2015.
The meeting, hosted by Technology IQ – a division of global events company IQPC – will be a unique opportunity for commercial additive manufacturing end-users, vendors and service bureaus to discuss if this technology will be a sustainable production approach, as well as strategies for manufacturing lighter weight products with less raw materials and lesser cost penalties, if any.
“It has allowed us the freedom to create. We now have a greater design capability that is more cost effective and we can pass these cost savings on to our customers. Another benefit is that production is less cumbersome compared with traditional methods” cited Harry Kleijnen, Manager Development Grids, Philips Healthcare.
Also noted by Keyur Gupte, Senior Project Manager of Tata Technologies, “We’ve reduced design iterations and this has resulted in a shorter design cycle time. And in turn, it’s a shorter time to market.”
With additive manufacturing taking centre-stage in Asia and especially so in Singapore, over 85 other commercial additive manufacturing experts from industries including medical, defense, industrial to consumer products are expected at the event; all of whom bring expert knowledge of based on hands-on experience – from process development to industrialisation for 3D printed products.
The Additive Manufacturing Asia 2014 summit will take place on 23-24 July 2014 in Singapore and special introductory rates are available for Singapore SMEs.
