Amsterdam RAI is delighted to announce that the keynote speaker at the METSTRADE show 2015 Breakfast Briefing on 17 November will be Peter Sander, Manager Emerging Technologies & Concepts at AIRBUS Industries. He will speak on the subject of ‘On the way to Additive Layer Manufacturing: Chances & Challenges for future of design & industrial production’.
The Breakfast Briefing is the traditional kick-off of the three-day Marine Equipment Trade Show (METSTRADE) in Amsterdam RAI, where invited guests and dignitaries gather to hear the winners of the DAME awards announced. As this year’s keynote speaker, Peter Sander will leverage on his 34 years of experience in the aviation industry to explore the world of 3D printing or - to use its more precise title - Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM).
Due to the volume of ALM parts in the new Airbus A350 aircraft, Airbus has unrivalled experience in this technology and its emerging possibilities. Sander will also discuss the impact of biomimetic structure design and its inclusion in the application of ALM. These subjects are of great interest to the marine equipment and boatbuilding sectors, which are leading the way in the implementation of new technologies in their industry.
The presentation will include an overview of the key factors, details on materials and processes, and tips on how to convince, designers and management for the new industrial value chain. Finally we will see some of the flying- and demonstrator projects out of a scope > of more than 120 ongoing or finalized ALM projects and some future industrial needs.
The METSTRADE show is the world’s largest trade exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry. It is organised by Amsterdam RAI in association with ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations). Three dedicated specialist pavilions are part of METSTRADE: the SuperYacht Pavilion, the Marina & Yard Pavilion and the Construction Material Pavilion. In 2015 the METSTRADE show will be held from 17 until 19 November in Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre.
