Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo - Seoul - Day 1 - Wednesday, June 27th, 2018
The history of the human race is recorded in the things that we have made and the way in which we've made them. We have been makers for millions of years and yet only in the last couple centuries did we see the revolution in production that started in Britain and reshaped the world, taking us from hand production to the mass-scale, factory-based mechanization that brings us today's cars, laptops and dishwashers. In today's world where we can download and print out the majority of a car from the internet, where a plastic surgeon can 3D print a replica of a patient's ear, and where Olympic swimmers are wearing suits printed from 3D scans of their bodies, are we in the midst of the ultimate digital revolution? In this keynote, Avi Reichental will share his latest take on where we are in the digital manufacturing revolution and his futuristic vision of where it's taking us.
Alex Lalumiere will showcase how HP is driving the adoption of 3DP printing into manufacturing to disrupt the industry. He will explain how HP is working with customers to develop true manufacturing applications in key verticals, and how the future offerings of HP will change the landscape for the 3D printing industry.
Several GE businesses are already using additive manufacturing to make and develop new products. GE Aviation is printing fuel nozzles for the LEAP family of jet engines. The company is also building the Advanced Turboprop, the first commercial aircraft engine in history with a large portion of components made by additive manufacturing methods, which include 3D printing. The designers reduced 855 separate parts down to just 12. As a result, more than a third of the engine is 3D printed. GE Healthcare, GE Power and the oil- and gas-field services company Baker Hughes are also using the technology. GE's case study will show the status of additive manufacturing technologies.

The 3D Printing technology is the driving force behind changes in the world. It’s been widely applied in automotive, medical, aerospace, and education sectors, causing it to be the new leading technology of world’s manufacturing industry. 3D printing technology is expected to change the paradigm of manufacturing as well as to create a new culture by merging with the development of ICT technology. This is a form of the Industry 4.0. This keynote speech will examine the direction of the development of hardware, software, and printing material based on 3D printer development experiences and look into see how the 3D printing industry will evolve with future technologies.
As 3D printing technology continues to evolve, many people are sympathetic to the possibility that manufacturing and ordering can be easy innovatively in manufacturing area. Now, other traditional manufacturing methods as well as 3D printings are being offered online, and that area will be expanded. Most industries are changed from offline to online services and people are accustomed to getting services online rather than offline. A big change is expected to be comparable to the industrial revolution if manufacturing area is changed to online service. How do we prepare for the upcoming MaaS generation?
The additive manufacturing (AM) based on metal powder bed fusion (PBF) has opened its new era. Global market of metal PBF applications has been exploding. Since the state-of-the-art AM EMB machine, Arcam, was introduced in Korean 3D printing market, custom made 3D printed cranial implants has been applied to over 250 skull defect patients. Not only for skull defects but also craniofacial defects has been reconstructed. In March, 2015 Korean neurosurgeon did a tremendous job for sacral malignant sarcoma patient for replacing her half of sacrum with 3D printed implant which was designed as near anatomical structure. The story from the metal AM continues and the urgent needs about the standard practices or international technical standards. This topic will cover the continued story of 3D printing in real surgical field and internal standardization.
The speaker will share the current status and trend of Additive Manufacturing in Silicon Valley and USA and introduce the status of each industry with additive manufacturing. And will show how government and university collaborate to develop additive manufacturing. Also, how Silicon Valley companies prepare for advanced manufacturing with AI, AR/VR, Blockchain, and etc.
Currently, most 3D medical printing technologies have relied on the 3D surgical planning and modeling software developed by western countries such as Mimics and 3-matic by Materialise based in Begium. However, it still requires excessive manual operation for 3D modeling and planning. KIST Medical IT team has developed 3D surgical planning and modeling software for 3D medical printing. In this talk, we will introduce 3D medical applications using 3D surgical planning and 3D printing software.
As an Enabler, 3D printing makes it possible to have different approaches, making value-added applications a reality and creating new industries. In applying the case, design engineering for Digital Manufacturing is concerned about how to connect AM's digital processes to our actual manufacturing environment, from the design engineering to the manufacturing in a strict Quality Requirement. To realize this, we will explore the real world of how Materialise is building a bridge to connect to 3D printing, from the 3D CAD phase to the 3D printer, and to the digital supply chain.
The process of three-dimensional (3D) printing (also known as "additive manufacturing" or “rapid prototyping”) uses computer-created digital models to create real-world objects. The 3D printers can create objects with a desired shape by stacking materials through a layer-by-layer process by which everything from simple shaped figure toys to more complex objects such as facial bone can be fabricated. Meanwhile, the 3D printing technology enabling customization, personalized treatment, and ease of fabrication for complex geometries is particularly advantageous in biomedical fields. This talk will present a new 3D printing system and process designed for tissue engineering applications. Specifically, we applied tissue engineering and patient-specific 3D printed biodegradable scaffolds for maxillofacial bone reconstruction in patients with maxillary defect caused by surgical removal of cancer. This is the first trial in the world to have employed 3D-printed, patient-specific biodegradable scaffolds for maxillary bone regeneration of complex defects at a challenging site. We confirmed that the patient-specific, 3D-printed PCL scaffold effectively filled the maxillary defect. Moreover, we proved that scaffolds made of PCL, which is a biodegradable polymer, promoted regeneration of a deficient tissue while remaining stable in the body for a relatively long period of time. In addition, I would like to introduce a multi head printing system that can print various biomaterials including living cells. I will introduce 3-D structures that are printed with various cells, and its applications as an organoid for animal replacement, and 3D cell therapy for treating disease.
In this session, we share 3D printing market trends, utilization trends in supply chain (SCM), and introduce SAP strategy for 3D Printing, differentiated offerings and case study as an important pillar of SAP Digital Manufacturing. This way, We look at how SAP brings new technology (Emerging Technologies) to the business world.
The application of medical industry using additive manufacturing is often using metal materials. Additive manufacturing utilizing structurally similar ceramic materials as bones will be a new challenge for the healthcare industry. In a situation where various materials are applied to the medical field through additive manufacturing, the suitability of the material may vary depending on the application field. You can check out the ceramic cases applied to the zygoma bone defect sites.

Companies, products, and services in additive manufacturing (AM) are developing at a staggering pace. With so much new activity, clarity on where to invest an organization’s efforts is critcal. The AM industry is excited about new approaches to design, and even biomimicry, but designers and engineers must now decide what is practical and where to focus their attention. Meanwhile, the AM industry is faced with opportunities and challenges related to material pricing, supply chains, quality, and infrastructure development. Can users of AM really achieve digital inventories and on-demand manufacturing? And, will they uncover the AM industry’s dirty little secret? Attend and find out.
The evolution of additive manufacturing pushes the boundaries of resolution, speed, performance and precision to higher and higher levels, with the aim to become a significant manufacturing alternative for consumer goods, medical devices and biocompatible applications. For nearly three decades, stereolithography has been established as the most precise additive manufacturing method, taking advantage of a superior resolution and an increasing variety of new materials. DWS, a recognized Stereolithography pioneer and innovator, recently developed TSLA, a new proprietary technology that represents a quantum leap over 3D printing in terms of speed and efficiency. Maurizio Costabeber, DWS co-founder and CTO will present the state-of-the-art of this new TSLA technology together with a new generation of sophisticate materials that aim to revolutionize and mainstream additive manufacturing.
Modern engine hood hinge systems have become very complex products because of the vehicle design, the available building spaces ad pedestrian protection requirements. These demand an enormous amount of strength and stiffness from the material and are the reasons why steel hinges today are as heavy as 3kg per vehicle. To minimize and optimize the weight of steel hinges satisfying the design requirements, topology optimization techniques and bionic construction principles were applied in their design stage and 3D metal printing techniques were adopted in manufacturing stage. Such a complex design for hinges were not able to manufacture them with the traditional manufacturing process. LightHinge+ of this paper shows how a traditionally manufactured functional automotive metal part can be replaced by an additively manufactured part. With Simufact Additive, we have contributed to the improved design, protection and distortion optimization of the additively manufactured LightHinge+ hinge. This presentation provides a process simulation method for the engine hood hinge and on the basis of which the shape of deviations of the printed hinges to the CAD can be minimized. The quality of additive components can be improved significantly with Simufact Additive and expensive and time-intensive production tests can be reduced greatly.
Overall, additive manufacturing is changing how parts are designed and produced. As companies are incorporating additive manufacturing into their workflow, they are able to increase productivity, reduce time to market and drive down total cost of operation. Simultaneously, 3D printing solution suppliers are offering a broader portfolio of solutions for their customers. This includes a broader portfolio of printers which meets the needs of customers for low volume production through factory solutions. We are also seeing an increase in the number of material suppliers including large chemical process manufacturers and the powder metallurgy industry. Further, CAD/CAE companies are offering improved options to design for additive with the inclusion of new modules and plug-ins. Based on this, we would like to review and foresee how 3D printing benefits manufacturing continues to evolve. This evolution is transforming businesses across a variety of industries, and ushers in new possibilities with each new phase.
As more organizations incorporate additive manufacturing systems to produce production parts, it is becoming clear that successfully moving beyond prototyping requires a more advanced and thoughtful material's strategy. To achieve the desired outcomes, organizations now need to learn how to build a methodical and scalable system for measuring and characterizing materials that are going into your processing systems. This talk will discuss best practices and standards for developing and executing a successful strategy for both metals and polymers -- from benchmarking properties, to creating appropriate operating/storage instructions, to testing and then ultimately tracking the lifecycle of materials throughout your production workflow.
