ACHIEVING FEASIBLE ECONOMIC RETURNS WITH AM TECHNOLOGY
The Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace & Space conference is returning for its sixth edition – the premier forum for AM users, R&D experts and industry partners within the aerospace and space industry. The 2020 meeting will take place in Birmingham, a city that sits in the heart of Midlands Aerospace – with the region home to over 25% of the UK's aerospace industry, 7% of Europe's and 3% of the global market.
AM for Aerospace is the leading conference platform for ensuring opportunities in high value manufacturing are not squandered and so that the aerospace industry is prepared to tackle the roadblocks of industrialisation of AM technology.
Over the course of three days – which includes an exclusive visit the Siemens/Materials Solutions advanced manufacturing site in Worcester – the conference provides a platform to support opportunities in high value manufacturing and help prepare the aerospace industry to tackle the roadblocks of industrial digitisation.
We sincerely hope you can join us!
