TCT Show and Conference 2016 Begins Next Week

Additional speakers have been announced for the 21st TCT Show and Conference adding to the already comprehensive list. Covering the medical, aerospace, automotive, industrial and consumer product design industries, the show will bring together a range of expertise from all areas of the additive manufacturing and 3D printing industry, along with upstream, downstream, competing and complementary technologies.

Conference highlights include insights, trends and real-life applications from, Royal Brompton Hospital, Sutrue Ltd, THALES, DARPA and Siemens. On the show floor some 220 companies will be exhibiting, with key players to include TRUMPF, Stratasys, Carbon and HP.

The TCT Show conference schedule includes:

  • Richard Trimlett - Consultant Adult Cardiac Surgeon, Royal Brompton Hospital and Alex Berry, Founder, Sutrue Ltd.  From Theory to Theatre Using Additive Manufacturing – Examining how AM has increased cross-discipline collaboration between product designers and surgeons with life-changing results.
  • Steve Catt - Mechanical Engineer, Thales Group. Additive Manufacturing within Thales – A look at how additive manufacturing is being utilised in this major electronic systems company acting in areas such as defence, aerospace, airlines security and safety, information technology, and transportation.
  • Jan Vandenbrande - Program Manager, Defence Science Office, DARPA. TRAnsformative DESign -AM has created shapes and material properties previously thought impossible but the generation of new designs is still challenged by outdated opinions about materials and manufacturing.
  • Vynce Paradise - Head of Advanced Part Manufacturing, Siemens PLM Software. Partnerships that Drive the Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing – Taking a look at the significant advances in the digitisation of manufacturing and the strategic partnerships with equipment and system builders.
  • Airbus AP Works, ALSTOM and 3M as well as leading research institutions from across the globe will also be presenting.

On the show floor Stratasys, TRUMPF, Carbon and HP: will be using the TCT Show as a vehicle to introduce new machines to the UK. Stratasys will showcase the J750 3D Printer, the worlds’ only full-colour, multi-material 3D printer.

Also on display will be the Stratasys’ Fortus 3D Printer, already a key part of the manufacturing process for many leading businesses including BMW, Airbus and Opel. TRUMPF will introduce the TruPrint 1000 3D, a compact, easy-to-install, true plug-and-play metal printing machine, ideal for the production of small metal components by LMF (laser metal fusion). Silicon Valley company, Carbon, is using TCT to showcase its M1 machine for the first time ever outside of North America. Carbon has fast become one of the hottest names in the industry after it unveiled its speedy CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology at a TED Talk in 2015, later unveiling its sleek M1 technology in April this year. The technology has already been snapped up by several 3D printing bureaux in the U.S. - find out why at TCT Show.

HP will exhibit the new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, which delivers superior quality physical parts at industry-leading speeds and with significant cost savings. With this machine, HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customisation in model shops and 3D print bureaux. Other leading companies including RPS Ltd who will introduce its new open stereolithography system NEOS 800; Matsuura presenting its LUMEX Avance-25 — a 3D printing, metal laser sintering milling hybrid CNC machine tool; and Sodick Europe — showcasing its new and unique OPM250L additive manufacturing/integral linear motor drive milling centre.

“Providing a platform that accelerates 3D technologies has been TCT Show’s mission for two decades — even as the technologies and the show itself have evolved, the aims have remained the same. Each year TCT Show acts as a crucible for providers and users of 3D technologies; from the comprehensive show floor where visitors can see all of the latest developments to the definitive conference where state-of-the-art applications are unveiled,” said Duncan Wood, COO, Rapid News Publications Ltd.  “This 21st TCT Show is a milestone not only for the organising team but the industry as a whole; never has the future been so bright.”

Conference and seminar sessions run across the two-day event and will focus on digital manufacturing, cutting-edge applications and provide a sneak peek at what’s new and the must-see technologies.
