Accelerating Additive Manufacturing to meet Future Mobility Needs

January 14 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

The mobility industry is striving to become as innovative as the medical and aerospace industries in the use of additive manufacturing. There are many pre-competitive technology developments that could benefit from the industry working together. For example, engaging the tooling supply base as a whole will benefit the entire industry since much of the production tooling is produced by suppliers. Developing common practices for part validation, material certification, and education and training programs shared by all automakers will help accelerate the use of AM in the mobility industry. Similarly, equipment specifications and process validation methods could be developed together for the benefit of the industry. For faster adoption, challenges surrounding the integration of AM into current and near-future automotive manufacturing processes also need to be addressed.

In this symposium, you will learn how other industries collaborated to maximize the benefit of this digital technology to accelerate their progress. You will also have an opportunity to bring your thoughts and ideas to shape the future of additive manufacturing’s role in the mobility industry.
