European Strategy for Additive Manufacture with High Performance Polymers 2016

The University of Exeter hosted the 2nd biennial AM event in September 2016, with representatives from leading organisations across Europe and the United States. The 2 day event included presentations from Airbus Group Innovation, Victrex, Versarien, Indmatec, EOS, Eurocoating, Oxford Advanced Surfaces and Boeing. These presentations coupled with round table sessions and networking opportunities provided the inspiration for some great discussions which we hope will lead to further projects that help shape the future of this exciting technology. 

Our thanks go to Victrex for sponsoring the evening dinner and networking event on the Wednesday night and ongoing support with the organisation of this important industrial event. 

More information is available in the Aerospace Manufacturing article published shortly after the event. 

The next event will be help in September 2018. To be kept up-to-date with developments in this area please email the team at calm@exeter.ac.uk. 

 

European Strategy for Additive Manufacture with High Temperature (HT) Polymers 2014

This event in September 2014 was the first AM event for HT polymers held by Exeter and brought together representatives from the Additive Manufacturing supply chain to discuss the short and long term vision for research and manufacturing, plus the funding mechanisms and ways to collaborate. A number of presentations were shown, focussing on the commercial and technical challenges surrounding the adoption of high temperature polymers and composites for Additive Manufacturing.

“A useful and informative event, with interesting presentations” Thiago Medeiros Araujo, Airbus Group Innovation UK

“An excellent opportunity for us to engage with some other major corporations throughout the supply chain.” Romain Czarny, Thales Group

“An interesting day, and an excellent opportunity for us to engage with other businesses involved in high temperature polymer AM.” Marcel Gowers, Smiths Group

“A very informative day, with both research and practical examples of how the technology is being driven forward.” Fabian Muller, EOS Gmbh
