ceramitec conference, the new conference format of the world’s leading trade show ceramitec, adds new highlights for the future of ceramics applications. Due to new manufacturing processes and improved raw material qualities, the ceramics industry is highly innovative nowadays, offering attractive solutions for an ever greater number of industries. At the conference’s premiere in September, the two program tracks “Industrial Applications“ and “Shape The Future”, which will take place in parallel, will elucidate which industrial applications draw particular benefits from the material and what are the advantages of additive manufacturing processes.
Leading experts from research and business will give participants insights into how the material can help cope with future challenges in sectors like automotive, aerospace, electronics, health care or production. Speakers from prestigious institutions, such as NASA, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or various Fraunhofer Institutes, as well as from companies, such as Honeywell Aerospace, Bosch, Netzsch or Eirich, have already announced their participation. The event will be held in English.
In this program track, everything revolves around new application possibilities for high-performance ceramics in the industry. Several thematic blocks exclusively deal with the use of the material in special areas (automotive, electronics, electromobility, lightweight construction etc.), whereas the two thematic slots Application-oriented Manufacturing of Ceramic Materials and Digital Materials Engineering revolve around superordinate issues, thus focusing on the classification of ceramics with respect to the shaping of production processes. Each thematic block consists of keynotes delivered by leading representatives from the industry and economy as well as of discussions among the lecturers. The audience is given the opportunity to participate actively by asking questions.
“Shape The Future” powered by AM CERAMICS
The program of the second track provides participants with guidance on the implementation of additive manufacturing processes in the company. In several thematic blocks, scientists and users from the industry elucidate various aspects of the application of this state-of-the-art manufacturing process in high-performance ceramics. The topics range from Insights from AM Experts, Industrial view on ceramic AM, Dental and biomedical applications to Applications for ceramic AM through to Material characterization and testing. For each of these thematic blocks, visitors may expect lectures imparting practically implementable knowledge from which they can derive solutions for their own entrepreneurial everyday lives. The “Shape The Future” track is a continuation of the successful AM Ceramics conference series. In the past years, the event always took place in Vienna in the autumn; this year, it is an integral part of ceramitec conference.
Attractive framework program for the two program tracks
Both conference days will start with joint keynotes for all participants on the potential of high-performance ceramics in the aerospace sector. On September 19, Linda Klopsch from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) as well as Jon Goldsby from NASA will give speeches within the framework of the opening session of ceramitec conference, whereas on September 20, Richard Gulotty from Honeywell Aerospace will be the one who marks the program start. In addition, visitors may look forward to a panel discussion animated by top-class panelists at the close of each daily program.
