Beyond the hype: Strategies for Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, Defence & Space

The aerospace and defence sector continues to lead in the additive manufacturing space. In 2015 alone, successful AM production projects have emerged in satellite construction, missiles and unmanned aerial systems. 

Analyse the state of the market in 2016

Stakeholders across the sector are now looking to short-term applications and return on investment as the crucial first steps towards fulfilling the potential of AM technology. Organisations from defence procurement, transnationals, major contractors & academic research continue to increase their interest and investment in the area as the positive results come in.

Reasons to attend Additive Manufacturing for Defence & Aerospace 2016

Acquire insight into the ongoing programmes that are leading the development of additive manufacturing from the project managers at the heart of the process

Engage with stakeholders from across the aerospace, defence & space communities and understand how rapid prototyping, production benefits and life-cycle management drivers are shaping their approach to additive manufacturing

Advance the mechanisms for industry research collaboration and support the strategies in place to maximise the opportunities for additive manufacturing in the aerospace, defence and space sectors

Understand the different strategies being employed to 
overcome key inhibitors- from certification & repeatability to training challenges- and how these can benefit your organisation


In recognition of this dynamic context, Defence IQ will bring together leading stakeholders to assess the state of the market and to exchange insight into the future applications of AM for aerospace, defence and space, in the short and medium term.  


Agenda themes will include:

  • Certification and standardisation strategies delivering critical assurance for defence and aerospace applications
  • Space, air, land and sea applications for additive manufacturing processes
  • Complete production cycle evaluation and assessment of through-life costs
  • Training engineers to ‘think in additive manufacturing’ terms to utilise AM’s full potential
  • Innovation and new technologies developing additive manufacturing for defence & aerospace
  • Commercialisation of research and developing short-term additive manufacturing strategies
  • The National Additive Manufacturing Strategy and its consequences for the defence & aerospace agency

                                        

Very relevant to us, briefings offered fantastic vision and drive for
"UK strategy going forward, which I hope we can remain part of"

Neall Heath, Industrial Engineer, Selex ES Ltd

                                                               “Very helpful as a 'touch base' to know where the industry is and is going” 

James Anderson, CAD Design Engineer, Roxel

"Would recommend as there were
senior decision makers at the event"

Neil Hopkinson, Professor of Manufacturing Engineering, 
The University of Sheffield
