International Conference on Additive Manufacturing

Collaterals events

Hour 14:00 - 17:30

Sagittarius room. Centro Servizi fieramilano
From 2.00 p.m. till 5.30 p.m.


The conference is organized, in the framework of EMO Milano 2015, by AITA- ASSOCIAZIONE ITALIANA TECNOLOGIE ADDITIVE (the Italian Association of Additive Technologies) in cooperation with CECIMO (European Association of Machine Tools Builders). Speakers coming from industries and academies at European level, as well as industry organizations, will illustrate the prospects of additive technologies, their impact on the world of machining and, more generally, of manufacturing. They will also analyze interesting successful cases proposed by some European associations in cooperation with companies that are making additive technologies a competitive advantage for their business. Standardization and RTDI aspects will complete the range of the covered topics. A panel discussion involving the speakers and the audience, moderated by an expert journalist, will close the event.
