2017 Ceramics Expo

Written by

Opening in just under two months’ time from April 25-27, 2017 is the much-anticipated Ceramics Expo – a free-to-attend exhibition and conference of what’s new in the world of manufacturing and engineering for ceramic technologies and materials. Whichever angle you come at the subject from, this established, dynamic, and all-inclusive event will have something to catch your attention.

The world’s leading manufacturers are already preparing for their groundbreaking presentations, including names such as CoorsTek, Morgan Advanced Materials, Saint-Gobain, CeramTec, McDanel, Corning, GeoCorp, Hitachi, and many others. The whole range – from alumina to zirconia – will be featured, and for myriad complex applications visitors will find a smart materials answer – or someone very keen to come up with it.

Running concurrently with the expo is the free-to-attend Conference @ Ceramics Expo. This unique conference hosts over 20 sessions, two tracks and more than 60 speakers over three days. It will showcase the latest manufacturing and applications developments in technical ceramics, designed for engineers and decision makers from OEMs and Tier 1s in the automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, electronics, industrial, energy, and communication industries.

The 2017 Conference @ Ceramics Expo will welcome headline speakers from global leading organizations including Intel, Lockheed Martin, Ford, Corning, Croda, Oerlikon, Penn State University, Smith & Nephew, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Delphi, Raytheon, and Siemens.

Representatives from the sector’s major companies will cover a range of subjects, from understanding key industry trends to manufacturing processes, along with reviewing ceramic additive manufacturing challenges to promote industry adoption. Scott Nelson, staff research engineer at Delphi, will be speaking at the session ‘Designing Complex Small Parts for High-Volume Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) and Dry Pressing’. “This is an excellent opportunity to see new innovations and meet people from all over the world that have many years of expertise in the ceramics industry," he says. "I also enjoy seeing what other industries are working on. You never know what might be able to be adapted to your industry from another. The technical sessions are also very interesting; to listen to the challenges facing others and their approach to solving the issues."

With high-caliber thought leaders and attendees from the entire ceramics manufacturing supply chain in attendance, Ceramics Expo 2017 is set to be an event like no other.
