The development of additive manufacturing at a global tier 1 aerospace supplier

Marko Bosman (Fokker)
The adaptation of additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing in aerospace industry is growing beyond prototyping with various applications on many different flying platforms. Typically starting with non-critical parts but readily evolving into  applications that are more critical. We are just at the start of the revolution of design and manufacturing that AM can enable but already GKN has applied the technology across the range of AM processes onto a range of products in aero engines and airframe that are now successfully flying, but as the technology improves the applications and benefits will too.

 

Changing the landscape of healthcare using 3D printing

Peyton Hopson (Johnson & Johnson)
Johnson & Johnson is working to change the landscape of healthcare through 3D printing innovations. Healthcare solutions that were once thought impossible to  achieve will now become reality through an entirely new technology platform … 3D printing.  3D printing technology will allow Johnson & Johnson to transform how we conceptualize, design, manufacture and deliver healthcare solutions, allowing us to personalize those solutions on-demand and at point of care to better address the needs of our patients and customers. In collaboration with an extensive network of external collaborators, Johnson & Johnson is emerging as a leader in 3D printing.

End to end software workflows connecting design to additive manufacturing
