RM FORUM 2013: Rapid manufacturing

Written by

RM Forum ‘Rapid Manufacturing’ is an Event/Seminar organized by Eris Program and Eris Eventi to discuss Additive Manufacturing and Lamination of Composite Materials. The Event is scheduled for September 19-20, 2013, at the Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel.

This second edition of RM Forum will discuss issues related to increasing the use of Additive Manufacturing Technologies and Lamination of Composite Materials in many industrial sectors, with the consequent increase in production volumes.

The event is targeted to:

  • technical directors (of companies in the automotive, aviation, marine, technical components, transportation, medical, sporting goods, home appliances)
  • designers
  • design and engineering studios
  • business leaders of service
  • mold makers
  • business owners and managers of subcontracting production companies of durable consumer goods that are interested in introducing these technologies in their production organization.

The event is divided into:

  • Seminar, which will present reports submitted by Universities and Research Centres and by major companies that have introduced these technologies in their production process.
  • Exhibition Area, where exhibiting companies from the following sectors:
    • Design Tools (software, scanners, ..)
    • Additive Technologies (sintering, stereolithography, Polyjet, FDM, EBM, ..)
    • Materials for Additive Technologies (plastic resins, metal powders, ..)
    • Technologies for Composites
    • Raw materials for Composites (reinforcements, fillers, resins)
    • Technologies Accessorie
    • Companies Service

The topics will address the different aspects of this field:

  • Rapid Manufacturing
  • Additive Technologies
  • Composite Materials
  • Raw Materials
  • Software for Production Management
  • Certificates
  • Cost analysis
  • Experience of Service Companies
  • Experience of large companies that have introduced these technologies into their production lines.

You can register on-line by accessing the dedicated RM Forum section, on the Eris website. The registration fee of 150 Euro includes: coffee breaks during the two days and the Buffet Lunch organized on the second day of the event.

RM FORUM ‘Metal Sintering’, an event organized by Eris Program was held September 20-21, 2012 in Milan. The theme of the event was sintering of powdered metal applied to rapid manufacturing, in particular for the aerospace, medical and racing sectors.

Their first event in Italy, RM FORUM collected positive opinions by companies that sponsored the event and the public who took part in seminars during the two day event.

Speakers presented state of the art additive technology and a number of raw materials, highlighting how sintering of metal powders represents one of the most promising additive manufacturing technologies. Also interesting were case histories presented by international companies that have chosen to include this technology in their production chain.

A number of people using this technology have consolidated their experience, yet much more needs to be done to increase knowledge about the potential of additive manufacturing and future expectations for the technology.

Reaping the benefits arising from the introduction of this technology is necessary, however, companies need to review all phases of product development, which may require solutions so far precluded from traditional technologies.

RM Forum ‘Metal Sintering’

Written by

RM Forum ‘Metal Sintering’ is the Event/Seminar organized by Eris Program and Eris Eventi on the theme of Selective Laser Melting of Metal Powders applied to Rapid Manufacturing; in particular in the Aeronautics, Medical and Racing sectors. The Event is scheduled for September 20th and 21st, 2012, at the Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel to discuss the state-of-art additive sintering of metal powders.
RM Forum ‘Metal Sintering’ is dedicated to managers of Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing service companies, owners of companies for mechanical sub-supply and production directors of extended durable consumer good companies who are interested in implementing this technology within their productive organization. It provides a two-fold offer: the seminar and the exhibition event.

The Seminar is organized in three half days dedicated to three different sectors: Medical, Aeronautics, and Racing. Each slot includes 6 lectures (with simultaneous translation) given by technicians of the supply-chain (AVIOPROP, BESTinCLASS, CONCEPT LASER, EOS, MATERIALISE, RENISHAW, SLM SOLUTIONS), main service providers and opinion leaders coming from major companies that have implemented the Additive technology in their production.

The Exhibition Event reflects the typology division of the Seminar, with three dedicated areas that will host, in pre-fitted desks, companies specialized in the related sectors, plus a fourth area dedicated to the actors of the supply chain (Technologies, Powders, Software, Certification).

A seminar-exhibition event to discuss about the state-of-the-art of metal sintering

In the past years, rapid manufacturing technologies have undergone an ongoing evolution, spreading to an increasing number of application sectors thanks to the significant advantages they allow to achieve in terms of time-to-market, realization possibilities and economic saving. In particular, metal laser sintering has switched from an initial prototype use to an increasingly intensive use as industrial production method for the realization of products featuring a high degree of personalization and limited numbers. To exploit at best all the advantages offered by metal sintering, it is important to be constantly updated on most recent innovations implemented in this field. Eris Program and Eris Eventi have organized RM Forum ‘Metal Sintering’ precisely with this purpose and with the goal of discussing about the state-of-the-art of metal powder sintering, thus providing a chance of encounter between the protagonists of the sintering  supply-chain and the potential users of this technology.

The topics of the seminar:

  • The themes that will be dealt with concern various aspects of this sector such as:
  • State of the art of the Metal Powder Additive Sintering  for Rapid Manufacturing (RM) in the Medical, Aeronautics and Racing sectors
  • Design for Additive Manufacturing
  • Materials for Additive Technologies
  • Software solutions for automation and control of the Additive Manufacturing file preparation and production process steps
  • Certifications guaranteeing production
  • Cost analysis in the use of Additive and Removal technologies
  • The experience of Service Companies that provide a RM service
  • The case studies of major companies that have implemented such Additive Technologies within their production lines.

Sponsors of the event:

Silver: 4D Tech, Ci-Esse/PM Technology, Overmach, Partec, ProtoService, Texer Design

With the patronage of: APRI- Italian Association for Rapid Prototyping
