The Mastering AM conference returns as a live event this year for the first time since 2019 and with the new innovations that have come on stream in the intervening period, the conference is a must-attend event for users of additive technologies.

The conference takes place at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry on Thursday 7th September 2023 and will offer major opportunities to network with other additive manufacturing professionals, share experiences and discover what’s new in this dynamic sector.

Mastering AM promises to be an excellent ‘sharing user experience’ event for the AM industry, with more than 250 attendees set to attend and broaden their knowledge of the latest additive technology solutions.

Taking part will be leading additive technology experts keen to share their valuable knowledge and insights. Helping visitors broaden their market intelligence and spearhead growth will be speakers from some of the top companies in the sector – Siemens P&E, Eaton Aerospace, Ricoh, and Wier.

Mastering AM is a collaboration between Additive Manufacturing UK (AMUK), the UK’s only trade association dedicated to the additive manufacturing sector and a constituent member of the Manufacturing Technologies Association cluster, and the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM).

AMUK represents the interests of its member companies and promotes the use of additive manufacturing within the UK. NCAM is a world-leading research centre that is dedicated to developing new technologies and applications for additive manufacturing.

This exciting event is ideal for anyone with an interest in additive manufacturing, whether they are already using additive technology, have it in their supply chain or are just getting started. Expect to learn about the latest advances in additive manufacturing, hear from industry experts, take advantage of opportunities to network with other additive manufacturing professionals, and share best practice to help benchmark performance.

With experienced users leading informative presentations and Q&A sessions, those attending Mastering AM will walk away from the conference with a wealth of new information set to help them accelerate their additive technology adoption journey.

Josh Dugdale, the MTA’s Head of Technology & Skills said: “Mastering AM provides a platform for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing users to come together and share best industry practice. It will offer attendees an opportunity to learn from others’ experiences, exchange insights and stay updated on the on the latest developments in the field of industrial Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing technology.

“The collaborative environment that Mastering AM aims to provide, will enable the attendees to optimise their use of Additive and 3D Printing technologies – which we hope will lead to technology advancements and increased productivity for the Additive and 3D Printing community in the UK.”

The content-packed agenda offers attendees plenty of options on what to see, hear, and learn. Here are some of the exciting topics:

  • Metal Powder Bed Fusion – Laser-Based
  • Design for AM & Process Simulation
  • Polymer Additive Manufacturing
  • Directed Energy Deposition
  • Binder Jetting
  • Ceramic AM
  • State of AM in the UK (Present & Future)

Attendees will be able to participate in a variety of valuable supporting activities, including getting help with collaborative R&D funding, assistance for SMEs on additive manufacturing, and expert drop-in sessions. In addition, exhibitors will be eager to show delegates how they can improve their businesses with the latest technologies. This can help businesses stay ahead with the latest trends, improve efficiency, and make better use of resources.
