TCT 3Sixty 2022 to put additive manufacturing centre stageTCT 3Sixty returns this week from 8-9 June at the NEC, Birmingham, and will bring the best of additive manufacturing (AM) technology from around the world. Designed to help elevate UK manufacturing’s adoption of the technology, the show will feature 160 exhibitors along with a multitude of innovations alongside a packed conference programme.

Duncan Wood, CEO of Rapid News Group, the organiser of TCT 3Sixty, said: “Hot on the heels of a successful return to events last September, we are delighted to be approaching the 2022 edition, in its new regular June time slot, with more exhibitors and more products on the show floor, a broader conference programme, a host of new features and the return of the TCT Awards.”

“Over the packed two days, prospective visitors will be able to get their hands on technology, learn and hear from experts, advance their knowledge and discover the next steps in their additive strategy. Whether they are evaluating the technology for the first time, adopting it into their business or looking to optimise their existing equipment, visitors will find insights and solutions to help move them forward.”

This year’s event will deliver a full 360° view of the AM adoption journey with more than 40 inspiring CPD-accredited conference presentations delivered across two stages. This includes presentations from Boston Consulting, US Air Force, Deutsche Bahn, the MTC, Callum, Vital Auto, Progressive Technology and University of Birmingham, alongside panels and debates covering sustainability, quality assurance and supply chain.

TCTTCT 3Sixty also has a dedicated stage for new product launches and UK firsts. The Introducing Stage will feature presentations from Xerox, Meltio, Nano Dimension, Theta, Covestro, Massivit, Wayland Additive and Materialise.

New for 2022, TCT 3Sixty is hosting the ASTM Short Course Fundamentals: Quality Assurance for Additive Manufacturing. This short course will provide a concise overview of the key considerations for how to achieve Quality Assurance in Additive Manufacturing, including a top level outline of what a Quality Management System could look like to produce components for Critical Applications, and an overview of available inspection methods.

Taking place on 8 June, the TCT Awards brings together industry leaders to celebrate the innovators, technologies and collaborators behind the best examples of 3-D printing, design and engineering from around the world. The host for 2022, Jason Bradbury is best known as Channel 5’s Gadget Show host. He is a well-known technology enthusiast and a force of nature when it comes to his passion for gadgets and science.

Visitors can also meet impartial industry thought-leaders in person at the TCT Knowledge Bar, to talk through their projects, ideas and challenges, and strengthen their network of top AM end-users. No sales pitches, just shared knowledge through their joint experiences of using 3-D printing.
