In the last July, Nottingham hosted one of the largest technology conferences of the commonly called “3D printing”, the Additive International. Also known as the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing, this is an event that, since 2006, brings together academics and industry to share ideas and knowledge, which has contributed to its reputation for innovation.
The 2018 edition was attended by more than 250 delegations from 170 institutions, including Fibrenamics.
Of the 19 speakers, the presence of Alexander Powell of ICFO – Institute of Photonic Sciences, who presented novelties on the use of nanotechnology to achieve more brightness and color in the powder sintering, one of the base materials for additive manufacture.
The other highlight goes to Airbus – Germany researcher Paola Gracciolo and her in-depth analysis of the effects that defects can create on additive manufacturing. The researcher proposes a simplification of the chain of processes, beginning with the better understanding and management of the melting process to the base material of the additive manufacture.
With the number of visitors and interactions increasing from year to year and an excellent balance between content, innovation and space for networking, the seventh edition of Additive International is already scheduled for 9th, 10th and 11th July, also in Nottingham.
