RAPID + TCT 2019 Conference
The RAPID + TCT 2019 Conference will be taking place in Detroit from May 20th to 23rd (May 20-23, 2019 | Exhibits May 21-23 | Cobo Center, Detroit, Michigan). North America’s premier 3D printing conference and event has just announced its conference schedule. Running since 1990, this event brings together the global Additive Manufacturing industry for a frank exchange of ideas, networking, discovery, and learning
Top 5 reasons to attend
- Learn how to use 3D technologies to reduce time to market, produce stronger and lighter parts, improve efficiency, reduce waste, and create complex geometries.
- Consult with industry experts before you make equipment decisions.
- Visit 400+ 3D technology providers in one room and see groundbreaking product launches.
- Network with the most experienced and influential community in 3D manufacturing and see how they are addressing challenges.
- Discover the latest processes, applications, materials, and research in additive manufacturing at the conference, with over 110 presentations.
By far the most comprehensive event in the industry, RAPID + TCT is where the entire additive manufacturing community comes together to share knowledge and learn what’s new. At RAPID + TCT 2019, you’ll witness some of the biggest product announcements of the year first-hand, discover the latest applications, and hear from the industry’s most respected experts on where the industry is headed next.
Over 150 industry experts will give over 110 presentations on all aspects of Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing. Thought leaders, researchers, and practitioners will present on machines, applications, new processes, materials, research and the latest developments in the field. Real life examples rooted in experience will show you how 3D printing can be used to reduce time to market, lower costs, lightweight parts, create complex geometries and textures and be used in manufacturing.
Renowned firms such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and GE Additive will showcase their AM expertise and ongoing projects. NASA, U. S. Army Research Laboratory, Oak Ridge Research National Laboratory, and The University of Delaware will bring you the latest in cutting edge research.
The expansive number of presentations means that whatever sector you’re in you are likely to find an industry leader giving a meaningful presentation germane to your work. What’s more, events have now been labelled: Novice, Intermediate or Expert to let you select the event that most suits your experience level.
Special attention will be paid to the rapidly growing field of medical and biomedical 3D printing applications. This is one of the fastest growing areas in our industry. Deservedly it has its own RAPID + TCT’s Medical Manufacturing Innovations Program (MMI). You can see the details of this now expanded event here.
An entirely new conference track this year is Automotive. The uses of AM in the automotive industry will be discussed. With car companies taking a renewed interest in using AM to manufacture parts on passenger cars this is the right time to learn about the latest developments.
For developments that are further out, there is also an emerging AM processes track. For people who do not wish to attend the conference portion of the event, there is an AM Technical Insights Forum on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
