The 3D Week will take place at the Science Campus Lübeck from September 9-13, 2019. It will focus on the current topic of additive manufacturing in the framework of an Industrial Symposium, a scientific conference on 3D printing applications in medicine, and a structured training program.
Additive manufacturing, often referred to as 3D printing, has long since proven its suitability for everyday use. Nevertheless, the question remains if this modern manufacturing technology should only be used in prototype development or also in series production. Costs and benefits have to be assessed carefully. This and other questions about the use of additive manufacturing in the production process will be answered at the 3D Week Industry Symposium on September 11, 2019 in Lübeck.
Complex melting and hardening processes take place in the layer-by-layer construction of medical devices made of liquid or solid materials, the physical-chemical modelling of which is often still pending, so that a discussion forum is to be given at 3D WEEK of topics relating to the achievable precision and the expected technical properties of the medical devices produced in this way. Questions about the precision and interaction of the printed materials with their future application matrix are important for all industries. However, these requirements are of particular interest in the medical field, where biological compatibility and long-term stability are of particular importance. The scientific conference Additive Manufacturing Meets Medicine (AMMM) on September 12-13, 2019 in Lübeck, Germany, will focus on these questions, with particular emphasis on the medical device regulation of patient-specific devices.
The Industrial Symposium and the scientific conference on medical application of 3D printing (AMMM) will be complemented by training courses on additive manufacturing and other key 3D technologies. A range of courses on the practical use of 3D printing in your industry will be offered; from the STL format to specific printing and material post-processing, you will get to familiarize yourself with 3D printing technologies in a hands-on environment.
The event is a cooperation between the University of Lübeck, the Technikzentrum Lübeck and the Startup Infinite Science at the Campus Lübeck.
The application of additive manufacturing requires specific training, ranging from modern materials to digital engineering. You can expect courses on the practical use of 3D printing in your industry; from the STL format to concrete printing and material post-processing, you will get to know 3D printing technologies in a practical way.
3D printing offers great opportunities, especially for SMEs, because individualized products can be produced even in very small quantities. But what exactly does 3D printing bring to my company? What manufacturing processes are there and what is the current state of technology today? At the SME Day of the 3D-Week you can expect practical lectures and exhibitions from renowned manufacturers on the subject of 3D printing.
3D printing is of outstanding importance in medical engineering and has been growing continuously in recent years. From prostheses and soft implants to matrices for tissue engineering, additive manufacturing has decisive advantages for medicine. The scientific conference AMMM 2019 brings together engineers, scientists and technicians with physicians and entrepreneurs to discuss the latest achievements in 3D printing development for medicine.
