Additive manufacturing: key success factors for mass production of polymer parts

France, Lyon

Since the last colloquium in 2016, materials and technologies have evolved rapidly, as has the production of metal printed parts, which makes it possible to consider the mass production of polymer parts for various applications.

The transition from prototype production to mass production implies three major and unavoidable requirements:

  • a precise understanding of the behaviour specific to polymer materials, based on both experimental and theoretical modelling approaches,
  • control of production tools with the integration of reliability, repeatability, productivity and HSE criteria,
  • the consideration of expected performances for applications thanks to the redesign optimized for 3D, simulation and training.

This event will take place on 3-4 April 2019 in Lyon, France.
