Innovation Day Additive Manufacturing


What does additive manufacturing mean? How will additive manufacturing influence your company’s production process and products in the near future? Will additive manufacturing become an opportunity or a threat within your line of business?

Additive manufacturing offers new performance potentials on technology as well as on process side. We are going to point out how you are able to include it target-oriented into your production, products and services.

The aim of the innovation day is to qualify you to derive the application potential of additive manufacturing for your company and to identify specific implementation potentials.

The focus of this innovation day is a practice-oriented introduction, which is based on the findings from science and research, as well as years of consulting experience of Fraunhofer IPT and KEX Knowledge Exchange AG. With the help of case studies a methodology is offered to you, which enables you to implement the findings obtained in your own company and therefore set free unused potential.

Additive manufacturing is shaping the production and products of the future – find out what it means for your company!

A seminar for:

Professionals and managers of technology oriented companies, particularly in the field of research and development, plant management, technology management and corporate development.


Dr.-Ing. Johannes Witzel, ACAM GmbH
