Metallic Additive Manufacturing in Industry 4.0

Metallic Additive Manufacturing technology has progressed significantly over the last two decades. It is considered among one of a set of disruptive technologies of this century. But, over the last five years, how widely implemented and how useful has the technology been? Thus far, this has not been simple and straightforward to answer.

In this webinar, Assoc. Prof. Suresh Palanisamy, from Swinburne University of Technology will briefly examine:

• Two decades of additive manufacturing technologies

• Status of the Australian additive manufacturing industry

• Future pathways in additive manufacturing

In the current situation of Covid-19, much discussion circulates about the key advantages of additive manufacturing (3D printing) which is highlighting the practicality of this technology during a time of need and the emerging need for local Australian manufacturing industry capability to grow and sustain in the future. Whether this technology can provide us with the competitive edge in both the local and global market is a key challenge that needs to be addressed for our future sustainment in manufacturing.

Joining Suresh will be Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D.
