About this talk

The session will give insight into the current state of industrial additive manufacturing. Highlighting the potential for big corporates and small-medium enterprises and sharing examples of companies that have been able to incorporate additive manufacturing in their existing set-up. But we will also hear what the main challenges and obstacles are. How can a company properly assess whether they are ready for additive manufacturing? What are the most common assumptions and do they prove to be correct? And what do the experts see further down the road, what do they expect in terms of adoption and development of both hardware and materials in the coming 5-10 years?
