- ANTEC to include several sessions on 3D printing / additive manufacturing
- Heightened interest in 3D Technology leads to formation of Special Interest Group (SIG)
The Society of Plastics Engineers will hold its “Annual Technical Conference” (or ANTEC for short) at the upcoming @NPE2015 in Orlando. This time the technical programme will include several sessions on 3D printing / additive manufacturing:
- “Arburg Plastic Freeforming—Additive Manufacturing of Plastic Parts Using Standard Granulates.” – Arburg, Inc.
- “Open Doors with 3D Printing,” by Peter Weijmarshausen, Shapeways, Inc.
- “Bring Great Things to Life with AM!” by Bryan Crutchfield, Materialise NV
- “Arburg Plastic Freeforming (AKF)—New Industrial Additive Process,” by Dr. O. Kessling, Arburg, Inc.
- “Breaking Barriers in Additive Manufacturing,” by Lonnie Love, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
- “High Heat and High Impact Poly(Lactic Acid) Compounds for Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing,” by Edwin Tam, Teknor Apex Company.
- “Education Presentation: Clearing the Air about 3D Printing Emissions,” by Dr. Steven Wright, Eastman Chemical.
- “Large Scale Fused Deposition Modeling with Reinforced Plastics,” by Vlastimil Kunc, Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
- “Comparison of Flame Retardancy Performance: Injection Molding versus 3D Printing,” by Jazon Zhu, PolyOne Corporation.
- “Fatigue Performance of Fused Deposition Modeling Style 3D Printing versus Injection Molded Ultem 9085,” by Jane Spikowski, PolyOne Corporation.
3D printing will also be featured in the co-located NPE2015 exposition, including a special pavilion with exhibits and demonstrations.
