Laser Institute of America Announces Session on North American Additive Manufacturing as Part of Lasers in Manufacturing 2017 Event

LIA will hold a session at LiM 2017 in Munich, Germany to offer unique perspective on how North American laser companies are successfully using additive manufacturing technology.

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) will organize for the first time a 1.5 hour Additive Manufacturing (AM) session called AM: Trends in North America as part of the World of PhotonicsCongress LiM 2017 event.

Held on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, from 2:00-3:30 PM local time at the International Congress Center in Munich, Germany, the event runs as a session of a subconference of the larger LiM event from June 26-29, 2017. LiM is a scientific conference on the latest advances and future trends in the field of laser materials processing, with a focus on potential for industrial applications. Organized by the German Scientific Laser Society (WLT), LiM 2017 is the premier international forum for researchers and experts in laser manufacturing.

The unprecedented AM session offered by LIA is intended to provide updates on the most current laser additive manufacturing applications and offer a helpful perspective regarding how American and Canadian companies are successfully using AM technology to reduce cost and increase efficiency.

“Now is an important time to be a part of all that is developing in the AM world in North America,” said Jim Naugle, LIA’s Marketing Director. “We are pleased to add our knowledge and insight to the vast body of additive manufacturing expertise offered at LiM 2017 through the AM: Trends in North America session.”

Attendees will include engineers, manufacturing managers, system integrators, precision parts specialists, and OEMs from all over the world in fields such as business development, manufacturing, construction, and design.

Featured Keynote David Ott from the Global Humanitarian Lab (GHL) will explain how 3D Printing can bring together the humanitarian world (private, academic and scientific) to address common challenges in disaster affected communities.

Other invited speakers include Rob Martinsen, CTO of nLight, and William Herbert, Director of Corporate Development for Carpenter Technologies. Martinsen will speak of breakthrough solutions for additive manufacturing and Herbert will cover material requirements. The session will come to a conclusion with presenter Yannick Lafue, Business Developer for Aeronautics, Defense and Oil & Gas at IREPA LASER with his presentation on AM with LMD-CLAD process: an Industrial opportunity.
