TCT Show, a specialist event dedicated to 3D manufacturing tech, has announced the speaker line-up for the 21st TCT Show Conference and details of the comprehensive exhibitor list. The 3D printing event will take place from 28th – 29th September 2016 at NEC, Birmingham.
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, Caterpillar and Alstom. On the show floor some 220 companies will be exhibiting, with key players to include TRUMPF, Stratasys and Olympus.
The TCT Show conference schedule includes:
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).
Olympus will exhibit the Olympus LEXT OLS4100, the industry's first laser scanning compound microscope. Offering accuracy and repeatability, and with non-contact 3D observations, this microscope delivers measurements of surface features at 10 nanometer resolutions.
Duncan Wood, COO, Rapid News Publications, organisers of TCT Show, said: “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. 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.
