Additive Manufacturing was born as a slow technology for prototyping of few pieces but its potential for high-performance and complex parts, custom components and as a perfect complementary partner to the subtractive technology is undeniable. Representatives of different growing markets will present their demands to service providers, machine builders, components manufacturers who will explain their capabilities and needs.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
