TCT Live 2010 conference programme details are announced
18 August 2010
The organiser of TCT Live, a key event for product developers and manufacturers, has finalised the 2010 Additive Manufacturing conference programme. Taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, October 19 and 20, the conference sessions are focused on specific industry sectors and examine how far the boundaries of additive manufacture are being extended.
The sessions include: The ALM Landscape — looking at the industry as a whole and how companies are embracing the technology. This will address key developments over the last 12 months. The jewellery session will provide an overview of how the jewellery industry is benefiting from the advantages of additive manufacturing, while there will be a selection of cutting-edge case studies from the medical/dental sector reflecting true applications of the technology. Transport, one of the first industries to embrace additive manufacture, is also a session subject that will take a close look at a wide range of applications in automotive and aerospace.
TCT Live is particularly pleased to welcome from the United States Todd Grimm, from T.A. Grimm Associates, who will present the Keynote address on Day one of the show. Todd is one of industry’s most influential figures with a background of over 17 years in rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing technologies.
Day two of the conference will kick off with an exciting keynote presentation from Mark Chapman, Chief Engineer of the Bloodhound Project, the team behind the fastest-ever land-speed challenge car. His presentation will give an overview of the project so far, identifying the challenges faced and the part that additive manufacturing is playing in helping to resolve these issues.
An impressive array of speakers have been lined up to follow over the course of the two days including presentation from Rolls Royce, EADS, Astrium Space Transportation, Honda R&D, DUT Racing, Cranfield University, Future Factories, Econolyst, Marianne Forrest Ltd and more.
The organiser, Rapid News Publications, is fully confident of attracting a record number of industry experts to this years’ show who are looking to network with like-minded professionals, develop their knowledge and keep their company one step ahead of the competition. Attendance to the TCT Live exhibition and conference is completely free of charge.
