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 we keep the orientations that have made our congress successful since 2016. We cover the most complete range of additive manufacturing activities, from design software to machines, services and materials dedicated to polymer or metal applications.
Benefit from the expertise of speakers and exchange time thanks to the Congress program mixing conferences and round tables.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At ATS, we combine metal additive manufacturing with our other manufacturing processes. This allows us to respond to innovative technical solutions not otherwise feasible and to economic challenges.
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.
Design, topology optimization with lattice structure, manufacturing and test of a turbopump turbine disk of space launcher. Project in partnership with the CNES.
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.
