Advanced Introduction to Additive Manufacturing (March 2017)
Tue 21 March 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 GMT
Understanding the benefits of Additive Manufacturing for UK manufacturers
Additive Manufacturing is enabling cost effective production of highly complex components in relatively low production quantities. This is giving designers unrivalled freedom, unlocking their creativity and fostering a new generation of entrepreneurs able to explore new market opportunities without the high barriers to entry associated with conventional manufacturing.
As a result, the MTC, home of the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, is proud to present this one-day advanced introduction course. Delivered directly by our expert engineering team, this course will provide you with the insight you need to make sense of this growing and disruptive sector.
“This course is a must do for anyone interested in Additive Manufacturing. The course involved seven of the MTC’s Additive Manufacturing experts, who provided excellent insight into this emerging technology.”
Dr Anthony McAndrew - Cranfield University
