CRP Technology will attend Rapid.Tech 2017, International Trade Show & Conference for Additive Manufacturing. The event will be held from 20th to 22nd June in Messe Erfurt, Erfurt, Germany.
Emanuele Grotti, Assistant Production Manager from Rapid Prototyping Department at CRP Technology, will illustrate on Thursday 22nd June at 11.15 (Session 1, Trade Forum Aviation) the paper “From racetrack to the construction of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle with Additive Manufacturing”.
The speech describes the applications of Windform 3D printing innovative materials in Aerospace and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) SLS structures: Windform 3D Printing materials, which were originally developed for the motorsports industry, are now finding a diverse range of uses outside of the race track.
In particular it will be explained the construction of Parrot’s Bebop2 drone prototype main structure, made from Selective Laser Sintering technique and innovative Windform GT Additive Manufacturing material.
“Rapid.Tech 2017 has established itself as the leading European venue for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing. An international perspective, a high concentration of market leaders and an equally high-calibre and visionary specialist conference with prominent keynote speakers focused on practical applications will set the tone for our three days in June” says Michael Kynast, CEO of Messe Erfurt GmbH.
Over the three days of the conference, researchers, developers and end will be providing insights into the latest research findings, applications and technical developments in Additive Manufacturing.
In his keynote speech on the first day of the conference, Charles W. Hull, the inventor of 3D Printing, will give participants a first-hand view of how innovation arises and how Additive Manufacturing (AM) can be further digitized and automated using Figure 4 technology.
The second day with open with a keynote by Christoph Hansen and Steffen Schrodt of Sauber Aerodynamik on the use of Additive Manufacturing in Formula 1 racing and the resultant potential for the serial production of components and devices. On the third day, Sean Keith of GE Additive will present the ways in which this technology leader in 3D Printing in aviation is driving forward the AM revolution in the sector. Eleven Trade Forums will take a closer look at the keynote themes.
In 2016, 4,500 trade visitors and conference attendees from 19 countries, and 176 exhibitors from 17 countries, travelled to Erfurt for Rapid.Tech + FabCon 3.D. Both the trade show and the conference therefore set new records in 2016.
