An in-person seminar on ‘Additive Manufacturing the Future’ will provide insights into state-of-the-art additive manufacturing activities and applications for end-users and industry.
Technology Innovation Institute (TII), the applied research pillar of Abu Dhabi’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), said the Additive Manufacturing group, a newly established subset of its Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMRC), will host the seminar on May 19 at Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas.
The thought session will offer insights into pioneering technologies that are disrupting and accelerating Industry 4.0 - the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Additive Manufacturing the Future will convene global experts and unpack the latest trailblazing additive manufacturing advances while also touching upon their current and future applications.
Attendees will gain valuable insights on the cutting-edge technologies and breakthrough solutions that drive industry today. Offering an ideal networking platform, the seminar is set to create a hub for interconnected additive manufacturing specialists in the UAE and beyond.
Dr Nesma Aboulkhair, Lead Researcher, Additive Manufacturing, AMRC, said: “Additive manufacturing technologies are reshaping the future of the manufacturing sector and enabling us to harness new opportunities in various fields, including aerospace, automotive, and biomedical, among others. Alongside insights about today’s manufacturing landscape, the seminar will provide an inside perspective on the additive manufacturing activities underway at the newly established Additive Manufacturing laboratory, with a focus on its industry-leading metal additive manufacturing operations.”
Myriad emerging areas
The seminar will cover the myriad emerging areas in the field and include ten key sessions presented by renowned global thought leaders and experts in additive manufacturing. Dr Aboulkhair, who was recently ranked among ‘Stanford's top 2% Scientists 2021 for Single year citations’ for the second year in a row, will deliver the opening keynote.
Prof Richard Hague, Director, Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at University of Nottingham, will present a talk titled Beyond Structure – enabling 21st Century products through the 3D Deposition of Functional Materials. Dr Manyalibo J. Mathews, Materials Science Division Leader at California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will headline a session on Advancing Process Control Additive Manufacturing of Metals. Prof Moataz Attallah, Director, Advanced Materials & Processing Laboratory (AMPLab), University of Birmingham, will speak on Additive Manufacturing of Functional Metallic Materials.
Mariangela Lombardi, Full Professor at Italy’s Politecnico di Torino, will offer key insights on Metal Additive Manufacturing @ Politecnico di Torino: Past, Present and Future. Dr María Teresa Pérez Prado, Senior Scientist & Head of Sustainable Metallurgy at IMDEA in Madrid, will address the topic of Microstructural Design by Additive Manufacturing.-- TradeArabia News Service
