Additive manufacturing and 3D printing are revolutionising the entire manufacturing industry. At Austech 2015, our focus on additive manufacturing is bigger and more comprehensive than ever.

This year, Austech is proud to be pairing up with Inside 3D Printing to co-host a dedicated Digital & Additive Pavilion within the exhibition. Inside 3D Printing will also be hosting an impressive two-day conference focused entirely on additive manufacturing. The conference will take place 26-27 May, with the Pavilion open throughout the duration of Austech, from 26 May until 29 May.

The conference has been programmed by Professor Bernard Meade from the University of Melbourne and Ian Gibson of the School of Engineering at Deakin University. Sessions will be led by industry experts and will explore new innovations and applications of 3D printing, and Inside 3D Printing has assembled an impressive line-up of speakers over the two days of the conference.

Giving the opening keynote address will be Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President at Wohlers Associates, Inc., an independent consulting firm which has provided assistance to more than 240 organisations in 24 countries, as well as to 150+ companies in the investment community. Wohlers has been named the most influential person in rapid product development and additive manufacturing.
