2 days Congress with high-level conferences dedicated to additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping and product development!
The APS Congress is held in parallel with the Business Convention. For the 8th edition, the Congress covers the most complete range of additive manufacturing activities, from design software to machines, services and materials dedicated to polymer or metal applications.
Benefit from speakers expertise and exchange time thanks to the Congress program mixing conferences and round tables.
The 2024 program is currently being developed!

A year rich in information,
The combination of processes (additive + subtractive manufacturing on the same part) has significant advantages in the manufacturing of prototypes, tools and final parts. Through Namma and its EVA machine, discover how hybrid manufacturing meets the challenges of Industry 4.0 and makes the most of this opportunity.
A true headache in metal 3D printing: how to ensure that tthe first print will produce a right part. Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Solutions enable this and you’ll discover how in this session where both design, 3D printing preparation, 3D printing simulation and compensation of unwanted distortion if any will be illustrated.
POLE EUROPEEN DE LA CERAMIQUE
In the additive manufacturing sector, ceramics are still a niche sector but in full expansion. The technical progress now allows us to consider mass production for technical and traditional ceramics.
One Click Metal is a German manufacturer of metal powder bed laser fusion machines (LPBF, SLM, DMLS).This integrated turnkey solution is economical and guarantees the operator simple and safe handling thanks to the powder cartridges.
The mastery of support techniques in Additive Manufacturing goes beyond the technical challenges faced by most AM designers and manufacturers. The new challenge today is to no longer need supports and therefore to open-up new applications, impossible of this manufacturing technique, and to increase its market share in the high-end technical parts manufacturing. This presentation aims to raise public awareness of the concept of "kNOw supports" developed by the Additive Minds team at EOS, to share concrete examples, and finally identify the few challenges that remain to be overcome so that this technique becomes a standard in metal additive manufacturing.
Tritone MoldJet is a powder-free additive manufacturing technology that enables the production of complex, high-density metal and ceramic parts with industrial productivity in a wide variety of materials.
Design, topology optimization with lattice structure, manufacturing and test of a turbopump turbine disk of space launcher. Project in partnership with the CNES.
Jean Louis FACILA
Metal printing now makes it possible to produce parts of great complexity by bringing together many advantages compared to conventional technologies. However, depending on the applications, the technology can generate a prohibitive cost per part.
A relevant approach then consists in opting for hybrid manufacturing, namely printing only the most complex geometry on a preform for which conventional machining is the most optimal choice. However, this approach requires both a certain expertise and technological tools.
Institut de Soudure supports its partners in the transition from parts manufactured by conventional processes to wire arc additive manufacturing. We will present you the approach, the challenges, the difficulties and the results of one of these studies.
For DED, as for other AM processes, Siemens offers a digital chain that includes part design, machine programming, thermomechanical process simulation, hardware driving the machines, and hardware and infrastructure to extract and process data on the shop floor and in the cloud.
IREPA LASER, expert in laser processes and materials, will present examples of industrial DED applications successfully completed using this digital chain.
After a presentation of the Additive Manufacturing activities in Normandy (platform - training - skills), discover and exchange with the DEMGY Group company on the different post processing for polymer additive manufacturing. A FAN platform's research priorities presentation will also be given in order to identify possible future collaborations.
For industries, it is essential to be able to certify the method that allows the manufacture of finished parts. The certification of a manufacturing process begins with the use of certified materials.
Metal additive manufacturing application fields are growing fast, creating as many specific skills. New machines and new materials are appearing involving changes to existing methods and facilities. As a result, designers and engineers must adapt quickly. The support of an open and scalable simulation solution appears essential to reduce time and costs.
The Additive Manufacturing technology is progressing very quickly. Machines and powders are developing at the same time that design limits are pushed back. But to inspect the quality of these innovations, is x-ray CT really required ?
Brandon Alves, Project leader at OpenLab will present the OpenLab platform and all the 3D printing technologies he uses. With Alexandre Brosseau from KREOS, they will come back on a specific application case to present the advantages of additive manufacturing in the realization and validation of this project.
