Why did Renault choose Desktop Metal for the production of tools for its French factories?

Alexandre BROSSEAU


As part of a global project around additive manufacturing, Renault has equipped itself with several 3D printing tec

Optimized production line for metallic additive manufacturing

Romain Dubreuil

GF Machining Solutions
Metal additive manufacturing has been a high focus over the last years with many companies investing in the technology. With a more widespread use and increased series production applications, new challenges arise requiring a higher integration of the technology into conventional manufacturing environments. The presentation will explore how metal AM production can be optimized with holistic approaches to the manufacturing chain.

A standardized certification finally available for AM - thanks to DIN SPEC 17071! What is needed to ensure the quality of critical applications

Christophe Blanc

The entire additive manufacturing ecosystem faces the same challenge: few adequate standards are in force. This is why individual directives are painstakingly drawn up and respected by each company. Therefore, each supplier meets different criteria. DIN SPEC 17071 * is the first standard developed by AM experts to ensure quality in an additive manufacturing center. We present the content of the document and show why this standard is ideally suited to assess the quality of suppliers (internal and / or external). Both for series and both for spare parts. All across industries!

Mechanical parts designed from an optimal arrangement of metal beams

Philippe BAUER

Alexandre HIRICOIU 

Additive manufacturing allows us to design a wide range of optimized topological solutions where organic forms are not the only ones that can meet needs. Let’s not forget the hollow parts that do not necessarily need to contain lattices, nor the metal frame structures presented today.

Metallic Additive Manufacturing of Series Parts Aerospace: Winning Partnership DASSAULT AVIATION - LISI AEROSPACE AM

Jean-Pierre ARGENTON 


Before moving to Make or Buy in 2021 with the AEROPRINT project, DASSAULT AVIATION has wished since 2012 to develop the LBM in a 100% Buy strategy. It is therefore natural that DASSAULT AVIATION approached LISI, a historic partner. This joint success on many parts makes it possible to continue FA developments between LISI and DASSAULT. The subjects are often complex but the ambition of the 2 groups is identical: to develop LBM Additive Manufacturing to reduce our costs and the mass of parts.

Modal Topological Optimization Development and Manufacture of an Aeronautical Equipment Support



CEA-CESTA and Printsky did collaborate on the development of an "organic" aeronautical equipment support in LBM Titanium Additive Manufacturing. All the key stages of industrialization have been followed, the qualification phase is in progress. The key stages were: the validation of the interest of a topological optimization for the part envisaged, the creation of the specifications, the topological optimization for a mass gain with imposed dynamic behavior, the design of the part by integrating manufacturing constraints, the calculation of mechanical strength, the machine and material qualification, the development of the manufacturing and the control methods, the manufacturing and the acceptance of parts. Operational qualification tests are underway. The fatigue behavior study is launched for completion in 2021.

Today’s factory and additive manufacturing: how to choose technology and design differently for more economical and agile industrialization, how to create value on your products



The Connex’lab, mini-factory 4.0, give the opportunity to imagine the future by discovering how new interconnected technologies can create value. 3 3D printing technologies (FDM, SLA, MJF) were used to design this assembly line and manufacture a customized product. The selection criteria and the advantages of each 3D printers will be highlighted as well as the importance of the design. Numerous customer examples will be showed to complete and  illustrate the industrial and current potential of additive manufacturing.

Development of a design-to-print philosophy focused on economic profitability

Bastien ATGER


The main objective of this philosophy is the definition of a pilot seat armrest design that is the most economically efficient when considering production. This armrest is originally a set of parts made using different processes and materials. Additive manufacturing now offers the possibility of doing it in one piece. Work on the functionalization, orientation, nesting of parts and printing parameters has enabled the development of a Design-to-Print STELIA philosophy in line with the industrial performance of additive manufacturing.

15:00 - 15:30

Whether Polymers or Metallic, today's 3D printing techniques cover both the tooling for manufacturing and the direct production of parts


Several printing solutions will be presented through application examples:
STRATASYS / Tools, Jigs & Fixings
DESKTOP METAL / Presentation of the new Shop System "Metal Binder Jetting System" for small and medium production
