The Additive Manufacturing Conference + Expo (AMCE) 2021 was held Oct. 12-14 in Cincinnati. The three-day event offered attendees ways to connect with leading suppliers, end-users and researchers of industrial applications for additive manufacturing technologies.“The talent and expertise on display for this year’s technical conference is amazing,” said Justin Combs, Marketing Manager for the AMCE. “We drew additive production thought leaders from across the country.”
Curated by Additive Manufacturing Media Editor-in-Chief Peter Zelinski, the AMCE conference program included technical sessions examining design, materials, machinery and applications technology used in additive manufacturing for production. Specific topics included reshoring, power generation, generative design, post-processing, machine learning, and architecture.
On Day 1, topics ranged from the shortage of AM talent as presented by Fabian Alefeld of EOS and a diverse selection of application examples from the likes of Brian Struggled of GE Additive and Spencer Loveless of Dustless Tools. Another presentation highlighted the partnership between The Verdin Co. and Cincinnati Inc. Verdin has adopted AM tooling from Cincinnati Inc. for its bronze casting bell production.
Other technical presenters included AM technology suppliers and leading AM users such as Siemens, Vertex, Penn State University, HP, and Procter and Gamble.
