Infocast Announces 2014 Additive/Aerospace Summit

Building on the great success of the inaugural Additive Aerospace Summit last year, Infocast has announced the annual second Additive/Aerospace Summit 2014, scheduled for November 3-6, 2014, taking place in Downtown Los Angeles.

Direct part production in metals (and other advanced materials) is the new frontier of aerospace. Every week a new breakthrough is touted: turbine, injector, fuel vessel, wing span. Air forces, OEMs, MRO players and “New Space” startups are growing their use of additive for a wide range of parts, whether it be for ultimate use in passenger or cargo planes, fighter jets, rockets, helicopters, UAVs, satellites, and perhaps someday, …entire space stations? However, aerospace is exacting in the extreme when it comes to materials, and additively produced materials have new properties. Intensive coordination between all stakeholders must take place before additively made parts can be qualified for flight, and the full market unleashed for these new solutions.

Top Officials, R&D directors, additive program managers and thought leaders including:

AIRBUS ¦ BOEING ¦ LOCKHEED MARTIN ¦ SIKORSKY ¦ GKN AEROSPACE ¦ PRATT & WHITNEY ¦ NASA ¦ AGC AEROSPACE & DEFENSE ¦ BELL HELICOPTER ¦ RAYTHEON ¦ DELTA AIRLINES ¦ SPACE SYSTEMS/LORAL ¦ ORBITAL SCIENCES ¦ MET-L-FLO ASTM F42 COMMITTEE ¦ NLR ¦ TNO ¦ SINTEF RAUFOSS MANUFACTURING AS ¦ NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL CANADA ¦ UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE ¦ 3DSIM LLC ¦ PENN STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ AMERICAN WELDING SOCIETY ¦ NAYANG TECH UNIVERSITY ¦ TETHERS UNLIMITED ¦ AREVO LABS ¦ NORTHERN ILLINIOS UNIVERSITY ¦ WICHITA STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ MISSOURI UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE & TECHONOLOGY ¦ GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ STRATONICS INC. ¦ HARVEST TECHNOLOGIES ¦ EOS OF N.A. ¦ VARIA 3D ¦ FABRISONIC LLC ¦ I3D MANUFACTURING and many more, will gather to share their plans, programs, requirements and timelines for what they need collectively to drive this emerging industry forward.

The Summit will be preceded by FOUR sessions covering the technical challenges, capabilities, and solutions for this white hot innovation sector.

  • Incodema3D’s Laser Metals for Direct Parts Tutorial | November 3, 2014
  • Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace 101 Workshop | November 4, 2014
