3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing

The impact of 3D printing materials on the 3D Printed product. 3D printing is hot and has emerged as manufacturing technology with a thousand uses spread across a very diverse user base. The ongoing development of new materials does not only have impact on the quality of the 3D printed end product, it opens new markets and it has a positive influence on the price level of the used materials.
How to design for 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing. Designers and engineers have grown up with milling and drilling as the manufacturing technologies for developing products. With 3D Printing/Additive manufacturing new opportunities arise but also new pitfalls.
When will you print your own smartphone? As the world of 3D-printing is evolving, electronics is quickly becoming a new key player. Functional elements such as sensors and switches are now being integrated into 3D-printed products, paving the way for exciting new markets, applications and opportunities.
While the 3D Printing industry has strongly focused on the first two steps of 3D Printing: Design and 3D Print, the third step, Post-processing, has been overlooked. Post-processing encompasses all of the actions that are performed after parts are removed from a 3D printer.
With the growth of AM, more and more organisations are starting to look at the possibilities to integrate this technology in their manufacturing processes. One of the core advantages that AM has is that its digital technology. It is completely CAD/CAM based.
3D Bioprinting is the utilization of 3D printing and 3D printing–like techniques to combine cells, growth factors, and biomaterials to fabricate biomedical parts that maximally imitate natural tissue characteristics.
3D printing is taking its place with 3D printing solutions for dental, orthodontic, and maxillofacial applications. Advances in 3D printing technology are constantly improving. Whereas manual creation of implants, crowns and prosthetics required a high degree of specialization, 3D printing can quickly and easily create highly accurate models.
3D MedTech printing market can be categorized as medical implants, surgical guides, surgical instruments and hearing aids. The medical implant segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate among all applications in the coming years.
3D printing is making a name for itself in medicine manufacturing. While it’s hard to foresee the wholesale replacement of current tablet manufacturing processes, 3D printing is expected to find a place in certain niche medications and in personalised tablets.
3D Printing / Additive Manuafacturing has already started changing the automotive industry landscape. Many leading brands in the complete value chain exploit this technology now for different purposes.
If you fly in a plane in the coming years, you are statistically likely to be flying in one that contains 3D-printed parts. The Aerospace industry is a great example of utilization of 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing (AM).
3D printing could transform the construction industry by reducing construction waste, as well as cutting project time and labor costs. In recent years, engineering research teams have been experimenting with using 3D printing for buildings.

4D Printing & Meta Materials

At the edge of new forms of matter! Making and utilizing new materials to improve our life is a defining feature of mankind. We moved on from the stone age, to the bronze age, to the age of silicon and plastic. Now we are at the edge of a new episode, where technological breakthroughs allow us to create, investigate and dream of a total new range of structured forms of matter.

Photonics

Integrated photonics drives next generation semi-conductor business. Photonics is the key enabling technology engine needed to keep the globe communicating and connected in the 21st century. It provides the bandwidth, speed, reach and flexibility needed to run exciting new applications that everyone knows – healthcare & life sciences, internet of things, M2M, social media, big data, datacenters, cloud computing and voice over IP. It’s the most energy efficient technology to scale up all these services.
The event where applications professionals are in the lead. Photonics, the science of light, is shaping 21st century innovations in virtually all industries. The Photonics Application Week (PHAPPS Week) is geared towards the business professional who wants to know more about the practical applications of photonics in his or her industry.
Where light leads to! Until not so long ago, photonics was integrated into the car only through lighting functions. However, photonic technology provide critical functions for imaging, sensing, smart displaying or for media communication networks. As a consequence, photonics is more and more adopted beyond lighting.

Agriculture / Food

The 3D printing technology will be fundamental to the way people interact with food in the future. Supermarkets are already testing to 3D print customized cakes, caterers / restaurants are offering printed desserts. Some even claim that there will be a 3D food printer in every home soon.
The Future of Healthy Nutrition. How can innovation in nutrition help to improve the well being of the growing and ageing population in the world? With a growing and ageing population worldwide, the importance of healthy nutrition is of paramount importance. The impact of technology requires a cross-sector knowledge exchange and cooperation.
Growing a large crop yield in a small footprint. The continually-growing world populations, the global trend to urbanisation, climate change and pressure on natural resources are key drivers for policies on global food security. Vertical farming is an innovative methodology for vertical cultivation of agricultural products, which can also realize true zero-mile city food supply.
The digital revolution in farming. After mechanisation, the introduction of mineral fertiliser and the industrialisation of production processes, connectivity and data management are now set to unleash the next revolution in the history of farming: Smart Farming / Precision agriculture. It has now reached a point where it is not only possible to collect vast quantities of data but also to control different pieces of equipment or monitor individual animals, the Internet of Things. A growing number of farmers are starting to adopt digital technology and data-driven innovations.

Internet of Things / Smart Industry

With Industrial internet, Machine to Machine (M2M) or Internet of Things (ioT) traditional boundaries disappear. The event will give you insights into the latest applications and research in the field.
Sensor networks for smart industry (industry 4.0 / industrie 4.0) and smart infrastructure are getting more and more essential. Real time information from ‘the real world’ to support decision making and control of vital processes will be an integral part of business processes.

Unmanned / Autonomous Systems for Cargo / Logistics

Unmanned Cargo Aircraft changes the logistics value chain. Unmanned Cargo Aircraft (UCA) get more and more attention. UCA offer the potential to transport loads of 1 kg. to 10 tons or more over both short and long distances, on routes that are unfeasible or uneconomical for other modes of transport.
