Exploring Innovation in Additative Manufacturing and Rapid Prototyping in the marine industry, 10th December 2015, Plymouth

The Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting this event which is Exploring Innovation in Additive Manufacturing and Rapid Prototyping in the Marine and Maritime Industries.

This event is aimed at those working in the Marine and Maritime industries and interested in seeing where Additive Manufacturing also referred to as 3D printing might apply in this sector. This event provides delegates with an overview of the opportunities this technology can offer and a further opportunity to input into the developing UK Additive Manufacturing strategy.

Furthermore the UK Marine Industries Technology Roadmap launched earlier this year cited Additive Manufacturing as a contender in; design and manufacturing, robotics/automation, composites and other materials and tooling.

In particular this workshop will set the scene for what is possible with current technology and where it might apply in Marine and Maritime applications. We are also inviting businesses working within these areas to identify manufacturing challenges they currently have that this technology could potentially solve.

The event will comprise of a morning of talks setting the scene and helping you to understand and appreciate the scope for Additive Manufacturing/3D printing and rapid prototyping applied to your business. We will also be informing you of the governmental strategy currently underway to help bring this technology to the forefront of UK manufacturing and ensure the UK retains the world leader in exploiting this technology.

The afternoon will be your opportunity to have a voice in shaping the strategy as it develops and to include the needs and opportunities for the maritime and marine industries to be able to best take advantage of the technology. We will achieve this by asking you to participate in a facilitated session to give your ideas, input and rationale that will be fed into the outputs of the strategy in the near future.
