Medical is one of the fastest growing application areas of 3D printing – or Additive Manufacturing. After a very successfull first 3D fab+print Seminar at MEDICA / COMPAMED 2017, this year Additive Manufacturing will again be addressed at the yearly international trade fair for the medical professionals in Düsseldorf / Germany.
On Monday, 12 November 2018, a full-dayConference on Additive Manufacturing for medical applications will be organized at MEDICA / COMPAMED, where global professionals can gain (more) insight in the most interesting developments. Since the 3D printing market is a rapidly evolving one – especially in the medical field, with application options increasing and being tweaked each day – staying regularly updated on the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing is vital.
The AMC conference program on Monday, 12 November 2018, 10:30 h– 16:30 h
[Version: 11 September 2018, subject to changes]
The conference program offers medical professionals a thorough insight in the possibilities offered by implementing Additive Manufaturing into the medical practice. You will gain knowledge about 3D printing processes and learn about various application options.
The conference presentations tie in with specific information need of medical professionals and are interesting for both newcomers to Additive Manufacturing and professionals that have already gained an insight at AM.
