Time: 8:28 am

Over recent years, 3D printing (also known as Additive Manufacturing) has found tremendous global resonance as a novel technology, but it now needs to demonstrate its capability to reliably deliver value in real-life applications. The University of Nottingham is at the forefront of 3D printing research. In this talk, Dr Martin Baumers from the University’s Centre for Additive Manufacturing, will present the latest results on the performance of 3D printing in real-world applications. He will touch on some of the challenges of the technology, like integration with other manufacturing methodologies, quality assurance and cost. He will also provide an insight into the type of highly functional, durable and life-changing items that researchers are pushing the technology towards being capable of producing; things like prosthetic limbs, complex pharmaceutical devices and advanced engineering components. Join us at this Ingenuity breakfast event to gain an insight into this rapidly evolving technology, network with other businesses and learn something new.”
