  Industrialisation of Additive Manufacturing in Sweden (10min)
Dr. Seyed Hosseini and Dr. Annika Strondl, Managers Additive Manufacturing and Powder Materials, Swerea
Synopsis: Additive manufacturing (AM) is a focus area for Swerea with testbed facilities and expertise within metals, technical ceramics, sandprinting of moulds, composits and large polymer constructions. As a research institute Swerea works in close collaboration with industry and academia to speed up the industrialisation of AM in Sweden. Swerea’s network in Sweden is based on its member companies and also hosting The Swedish Arena for Additive Manufacturing of Metals and LIGHTer - a Swedish multi-sectorial lightweight arena. Swerea now looks for Swiss collaboration partners to find new synergies.

  New Technology Enabling New Space
Franck Mouriaux, General Manager Structures, RUAG Switzerland AG
Synopsis: Space is facing a paradigm shift that applies not only to launchers but also to satellites, becoming truly commercial and competitive.Performance must be increased significantly while costs and lead time must be dramatically reduced by several orders of magnitude. Additive manufacturing is the technologies that enables new spacecraft designs and architectures combined with an agile development process.

 12:00-13:30 NETWORKING LUNCH & TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION
 13:30-13:50 ACADEMIA/RESEARCH INSTITUTE PRESENTATIONS
  Material- and Powder Solutions for Powder-Based Additive Manufacturing (10min)
Eduard Hryha, Professor, Department of  Industrial and Materials Science, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg
Synopsis: The powder as raw material constitutes an important strategy in metal AM where number of available materials at the current state-of-the-art is limited. The research focus of the Competence Centre for Additive Manufacturing – Metal (CAM2) is focused on the development of tailored materials and robust powder-based manufacturing processes. Within these areas we search for MNEs, SMEs and academia as collaboration partners.
