With the TCT Show almost upon us, MEPCA rounds up what visitors can expect from the event.
At this year’s TCT Show over 250 exhibitors will be showing the latest technologies and services covering the entire design-to-manufacturing value chain. An anticipated 10,000 plus visitors can expect product launches, UK debuts and examples of innovative applications across aerospace, medical, automotive and more. Highlights include the European debut of Stratasys’ newly-launched Fortus 380CF Production 3D Printer, 3D Systems’ scalable Figure 4 production platform, and Ultimaker’s new larger S5 dual extrusion system which is already being leveraged by major industrial players such as Ford.
Hear from the Hall of Famers
The Main Stage will host the TCT Hall of Fame panel session featuring this year’s inductees and moderated by TCT Head of Content Dan O’Connor. The ability to bring together some of the most influential characters from the early days of the additive manufacturing (AM) industry will give not only a glimpse into our shared history but also remind us of the pitfalls we must all avoid.
The TCT Main Stage is also the place to be to hear from Blue Chips, SMEs and research and academia leaders and learn how 3D technologies are making a real impact in the manufacturing world. Grab a seat and take in valuable insight from the likes of Airbus, PepsiCo, Natural History Museum and University of Sheffield on how 3D technologies are being applied across research and industry.
The brainchild of Cyant and Women in 3D Printing, the popular 3DTALK event series returns to TCT Show for another lively panel session featuring four industry leaders sharing their experience and knowledge from across the 3D technologies spectrum. Catch this session on the Tech Stage at 12:45 to 13:30.
