The show continues to go from strength to strength and 2012 will see TCT Live again co-locate with MM Live UK,

NANO Live UK and MEMS Live UK. Further significant developments will also see the launch of Rapid News’ newest show, Mediplas, which will focus on the highly specialised area of the design and manufacture of plastic parts for the medical industry and the formal co-location with Sensing Technology 2012. This grouping of shows will provide a significant showcase of engineering and manufacturing technology in the UK with a projected attendance approaching 10,000.

In order to maintain the world-class nature of TCT Live Rapid News Communications Group is now calling for outstanding abstract submissions for the following sessions.

TCT Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Conference

The TCT conference, now approaching its 17th edition, is characterised by high quality presentations from leading users of the technologies and industry commentators. For 2012 the conference will continue to explore the impact and applications of both AM and 3DP. Presentations should address the design issues, the business benefits in terms of time-to-market, financial objectives, material issues and/or part performance.

All submissions must be non-promotional in content and presented by companies that are utilising and/or researching the technologies for an industrial application.
