articleIN(3D)USTRY, a new, 3-day event bringing place of June 21st to June 23rd at the captivating location of Fira Barcelona, is starting of adopters’ making needs and and so moving on to explore the many various solutions contributeed by additive making technologies. Inviting AM adopters, pretty than innovation createers, is a novel approach and one that the entire industry has been longing for.

“It’s a global, state-of-the-art event of the Additive & Advanced Manufacturing Industry, where visitors can discover, meet, see, touch and learn of industry experts,” says Miquel Serrano, Director of IN(3D)USTRY. “For the initially time, an additive making event can provide real interaction between users and createers to foster learning of the needs of nowadays’s and next markets. This is a new event concept where Industrial End-Users present their challenges to the Additive & Advanced Manufacturing Industry in search of real and revolutionary solutions.”

3D Printing As a Solution to Manufacturing Challenges

The show floor can be divided into four main sections: healthcare, consumer, architecture and automotive&aerospace.

The show floor can be divided into four main sections: healthcare, consumer, architecture and automotive&aerospace.

The event, that can include both exhibition space and “TED-like” inspirational talks, can focus on four main areas where additive & high end making can may already contribute the many viable-bodied and clear solutions in terms of value chain optimization: Healthcare, Automotive & Aeronautics, Retail & Consumer Goods, Architecture & Habitat. It can do so by exploring and sharing successful use cases in every area.

“The main event can be divided into four sections. Here, companies such as Stratasys, together with the doctors and hospitals that have may already started implement their solutions, can be able-bodied to feature their solutions for the medical industry, in terms, for example, of prosthetics and implants,” says Serrano.

One other top AM adopter, car createer SEAT, has in addition confirmed it can be one of the exhibitors.

Within the Global Hub top level decision makers can be presented with the latest in terms of AM technologies and their real implementation in the production workflow. The adjoining Innovation Hub can be dedicated to sharing most practices inside the Open Innovation Marketplace. Here entrepreneurs, startups and technological innovators can have the opportunity to meet major corporations and venture capitalists.

Major companies such as HP, Stratasys and Hoffman Group can be present along with adopters such as SEAT Auto.

The Maker Pro area can contribute members the opportunity to participate in workshops and labs, in order to test and try initially hand the next ahead for the additive and high end making sector. This part is focused on B2C applications as a mean to explore new pro businesses for 3D printing. It can benefit of the collaboration with Tomas Diez, founder of FabLab Barcelona, the initially and biggest FabLab in Europe (and one of the many active of the world in terms of exploring new approaches to making).

All these synergies can come together with the city’s own new hustle.

“There is a clear intent of the government of Catalunya to additional create Barcelona’s global leadership in terms of SmartCity concepts and applications,” Serrano explains. “This approach is particularly significant in terms of creating an high end and optimized making ecosystem through additive making technologies and we believe that IN(3D)USTRY can be the perfect starting point.”

Time is running short and enthusiasm is high. Among the main sponsors and exhibitors are a few of the many high profile companies in the AM industries of nowadays and in the future. These include industry leader Stratasys and the Hofmann Group, the company that creates the XLine 2000, the biggest metal 3D printing device on the market.

HP, that is participating as both Diamond Sponsor and Event Founder, is now close to launching its initially multijet fusion 3D printing device through its new 3D printing division (that is based in Barcelona). Italy’s office innovation leader Olivetti, that not long ago entered the 3D printing areas with its own pro models, in addition confirmed it can be present as an exhibitor. After three years of “creative chaos”, the additive making industry of in the future is starting to take form, IN(3D)USTRY can be the initially event where we will be able-bodied to quite catch a full view of what awaits.
