Transforming
Industries


Engage in the 3rd edition of this premium event around the business impact of additive manufacturing & 3D printing. The 3D Print market is maturing fast and we see investments in the digital manufacturing world growing in 2017. Also there is a focus on industrial end user parts. The attendees of this focused invitation only event are leading the digital transformation of their companies. Both as a customer and as a producer. Join this vibrant day in the heart of Amsterdam with a great programme, full of market insights and with a high level business dinner. You do not want to miss out on one of the leading events in the year.


The use of 3D printing is expected to grow dramatically over the next years. Research firms indicate that 3D printing will see a constant expansion over the next 20 years of key variables: printable materials, combinations of materials, integration with electronics, improvement in the speed with which items can be printed and emergence of new models to print.

With the most interesting business cases still to come, we have already seen many successes in adopting 3D printing. Manufacturers from all industries are now jostling to figure how to incorporate this new technology. With large-scale change we typically face two challenges. Not only having the right tools in order to succeed, but maybe even more importantly: changing your mindset.


Visitors of the 3D-Print Conference Amsterdam 2017 learn all about how 3D printing is already changing global economies, value chains, product development cycles, distribution chains, transform our industries and, ultimately how it will change our way of life. Exciting and inspiring speakers from companies that provide cutting edge smart technologies and from institutes who have all the latest insights will take them into the future and shine their light on what’s going to happen next and how companies get on board.

SECURED INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURING: BUILDING A DISTRIBUTED GLOBAL FACTORY THAT DELIVERS PRODUCTS WHEN AND WHERE NEEDED, WHILE PROTECTING ALL STAKEHOLDERS’ RIGHTS
Brant RichardsCEO Genesis of Things
Venue: Studio B
The future of manufacturing will be decentralized, enabled by disruptive digital production technologies. The winners in this new world will be those companies able to leverage this dis- ruption to pro tably meet the ever changing needs of a globally distributed customer—not only by reducing inventory costs and lead times, but also by increasing production ef ciency and bringing product life cycle management to the next dimension
3D printing is among the most promis- ing technologies capable of bringing fundamental changes to how the world manufactures goods. But, the industrial use of 3D printing has been held back by high initial investment costs and a poor ability to securely transfer and monetize proprietary digital information such as designs and production processes. We have developed a game-changing open, secure platform to decentralize in- dustrial manufacturing, allowing users to:
  • • Find and contract the best 3D print- er for their production needs
  • • Securely transfer 3D les directly into a 3D printer, with zero human access
  • • Set up smart contracts to regulate, track and automate access, use, logis- tics, rights and payments
  • • Tag products with a transparent, trace- able, non-editable digital product memory
15:25am - 15:45pm
Finding the Business Case: The main drivers for the adoption of metal additive manufacturing
Onno Ponfoort & Luuk NolletBerenschot
Venue: Studio B
Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing (3DP), is a collective name for several technologies which use layer-upon-layer production to create a three-dimensional object. The benefits of AM are communicated quite a lot. Business cases, for instance by GE Aviation, have been presented with positive results. Still, adoption of AM only slowly take place. Why are companies hesitant? This presentation provides insights into the main drivers for the adoption of metal AM. The presentation is based on a study done that identifies factors in the context of technology, organisation and environment that influence the adoption decision by potential customers. In the study the difference between adopters and non-adopters of AM have been analysed on over 20 variables. The results are filtered for different roles in the buying decision Preliminary results show that both fact-based and emotional aspects drive the decision to adopt metal additive manufacturing. The main topic for those investigating AM is: finding the business case.

Augmenting Fabrication and Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing in the built environment
Dr. Ir. Jouke VerlindenPrincipal Investigator 3D Building FieldLab & Assistant professor at the section of Advanced Manufacturing, Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, TU Delft
Venue: Studio B
To make most out of manufacturing of the future, we need to engage stakeholders though technologies that blend the digital and physical. Through so-called Augmented Fabrication, computational precision and digital manufacturing are combined with user skills/intuition. One of such approaches is the use of co- located design in the built environment: through wearable AR systems such as the Microsoft Hololens, multiple stakeholders can conceive and consider several interventions to improve functions of a city.Larger-scale production have been considered since the past decade, in particular for concrete and plastics. Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) is a technique in which a shape is fabricated by welding layer upon layer with a robotic arm, until a desired threedimensional shape has been formed.
