This year’s TCT Live conference will continue to explore the realities and the potential of additive manufacture, with a specific focus on industry sectors that lead the way in moving the technology forward.
The comprehensive theme of the TCT Live 2010 event is ‘business critical and advanced technologies for product development and manufacturing’ and to this end the Conference Manager would welcome any paper submissions from parties who can present a definitive application of Additive Manufacture in the following areas:
Business — The Advantages of Adopting Additive Manufacture
Automotive Applications of AM
Aerospace, Applications of AM
Medical or Dental Applications of AM
Jewellery Applications of AM
Sustainable Manufacturing Models of AM
Presentations should address at least one of the following aspects: the design issues, the business benefits in terms of time-to-market and financial objectives, material issues and/or part performance.
The conference will once again be held at the prestigious and centrally located Ricoh Arena, Coventry, 19th–20th October 2010, and anyone submitting a presentation must be available to present on either of these two days.
All submissions must be non-promotional in content and presented by companies that are utilising and/or researching the technologies for an industrial application. All submissions will be reviewed by the conference steering committee to ensure that they meet the necessary and exacting requirements of TCT.
No vendor papers will be accepted from companies that sell machines, materials or associated services. Interested parties are initially requested to submit a detailed abstract (3-400 words) of their proposed paper on or before 15th March 2010. This should include the working title, all authors/contributors and their affiliations.
