About the Showcase

Discover how Additive Manufacturing (AM) - better known as 3D printing - can complement your existing manufacturing process and learn about real world manufacturing cases where AM has helped transform organisations' products and service offerings.

Learn how to access AM technology and the support available to help your organisation develop applications. Our showcase hosts, PWR Performance Products will provide a tour of their manufacturing process and their vision of where Additive Manufacturing fits in their long-term manufacturing strategy.

On the day, Additive Manufacturing industry leaders will deliver some compelling studies and overviews of the process to help attendees understand the opportunity that AM presents. There will be an informal open discussion over afternoon tea with the industry experts to discuss how AM could fit into your process and how to get started with the technology.
