The Laser Institute of America (LIA) will present a new 1.5-hour session called Lasers in Manufacturing AM: Trends in North America on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, from 2:00-3:30 PM local time at the International Congress Center in Munich, Germany.
As part of the Additive Manufacturing subconference of Lasers in Manufacturing (LiM) 2017, LIA will add to the body of knowledge that LiM provides as a platform to share innovative insights within the laser world. Like LIA, LiM is dedicated to scientific presentations that provide the latest results in research. The larger World of Photonics Congress LiM event runs from June 26-29 and is organized by the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT).
The intent behind this distinct, North American focused AM session is to offer updates on the most current laser additive manufacturing applications and to provide a unique perspective regarding how North American companies are successfully using AM technology to reduce cost and increase efficiency. There has never been a better time for laser specialists worldwide to discover the strides that North American laser companies are making in the realm of additive manufacturing technology.
What can attendees expect?
Attendees will include engineers in fields such as business development, manufacturing, construction, and design, as well as system integrators, precision parts specialists, and OEMs from around the world.
Keynote speaker David Ott of the Global Humanitarian Lab (GHL), is prepared to teach on 3D Printing and the ways that it draws together humanitarian efforts worldwide to address the common challenges faced in communities that are affected by disasters. This includes private, academic, and scientific humanitarian efforts across the globe.
Additionally, author Rob Martinsen, CTO of nLight, will be speaking about the breakthrough solutions for additive manufacturing. Another featured speaker within LIA’s AM session will be author William Herbert, Director of Corporate Development for Carpenter Technologies, who will be speaking on the material requirements for additive manufacturing. To end the session, Yannick Lafue, Business Developer for Aeronautics Defense and Oil & Gas at IREPA LASER, will present on AM with LMD-CLAD process: an Industrial opportunity. These are presentations you won’t want to miss!
