AMTIL has unveiled details of UNLIMIT3D, a two-day conference on additive manufacturing and 3D printing, to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) from 14-15 May.

The UNLIMIT3D conference will run alongside Austech, Australia’s premier advanced manufacturing and machine tool exhibition, to be held at the MCEC from 14-17 May. Co-located with National Manufacturing Week (NMW), Austech will also feature a special dedicated exhibition area, the Additive Manufacturing Pavilion, which will showcase the latest innovations in additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

The UNLIMIT3D conference will focus on the industrialisation of additive manufacturing, featuring expert speakers who have implemented this technology in real-world production processes. Their experiences and insights, the challenges they have faced, and the benefits of applying additive manufacturing will be fully explored. Delegates will hear first-hand the trials and tribulations of innovating in this space from companies that can offer practical examples.

AMTIL has assembled a diverse line-up of speakers for UNLIMIT3D. Giving the keynote opening address will be Rob Gorham, Executive Director of America Makes, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute at the US’s National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining. Having previously served as Senior Manager of the Manufacturing Exploration and Development Group at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, brings a wealth of experience in the application of additive manufacturing in cutting-edge advanced manufacturing processes.

“3D printing is a game changer,” said Shane Infanti, CEO of AMTIL. “This conference will assist local companies to innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. A further opportunity exists post-conference to engage with renowned international experts who will hold workshop sessions in the week following the Austech exhibition.”

UNLIMIT3D is sponsored by SYSPRO Australasia and by the Additive Manufacturing Hub. The AM Hub’s mission is to provide an industry-driven collaborative network of organisations that will foster and grow the additive manufacturing sector. Led by AMTIL and generously supported by the Victorian Government, the Additive Manufacturing Hub has been established to grow and develop additive manufacturing capability.

Additive Manufacturing Pavilion puts 3D printing on show

Austech has consistently provided a showcase for additive manufacturing as it has developed over the years, and the Additive Manufacturing Pavilion is now an unmissable part of the show. With additive manufacturing continuing to revolutionise the manufacturing industry, the focus on additive manufacturing will be more comprehensive than ever at Austech 2019. The Additive Manufacturing Pavilion will feature demonstrations of the latest 3D printers and services from a range of companies and organisations that lead the field of additive manufacturing.
