Additive Manufacturing on a small scale and Emerging Trends in AM

Event details
Tuesday, 16 October 2018
10:00 am – 16:30 pm
Additive Manufacturing SIG Workshop




KTN’s Additive Manufacturing Special Interest Group (SIG) is collaborating with the Emerging Technology and Industries Team to bring you an event to explore the applications of small and micro scale additive manufacturing or 3D printing.



The event will look at three themes:

  • Electronics / Flexible electronics
  • Medical
  • Fashion /Jewellery


Potential application areas of Small Scale AM include Organic LEDs, Organic Photovoltaic, bone tissue printing, and wearables with use in many industries from construction to health, fashion to transport. Furthermore, we will look at emerging technologies in AM, such as bio printing, nature inspired AM to give an outlook into the future.


We will bring together industry, supply chain, end users and academia either working in AM/3D printing presently and focussing on additive printing of electronics to look into discovering the benefits and potential challenges of the technologies at a small scale.


Furthermore you have the opportunity to have 1:1 sessions with colleagues from Innovate UK and the Knowledge Transfer Network to advise on funding and how you can integrate additive manufacturing and emerging technologies to accelerate your business.


The day will present industry led case studies and cutting-edge research demonstrating the applications and advancements of small scale additive manufacturing in the UK, along with the support and funding available to take ideas forward. There will also be an opportunity for networking and discussions with leading end users, solution providers and developers of these technologies. Presenters will have the opportunity to showcase their technologies and applications in the networking breaks.


This event is brought together by KTN’s Additive Manufacturing Special Interest Group(SIG) which aims to create and promote new knowledge and knowledge transfer in the area of additive manufacturing and 3D printing (AM/3DP), primarily for the benefit of UK business and economic growth and the Emerging Technology and Industries Team.


If you want to know how to print on the small scale and see application areas across sectors, do come along.
