The Technology Innovation Institute (TII) has announced that the Additive Manufacturing team within its Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMRC) will host a second edition of the “Additive Manufacturing the Future” seminar this year.

TII is a leading global scientific research center and the applied research pillar of Abu Dhabi’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC).

The seminar in its second year is poised to become an annual fixture for Abu Dhabi’s manufacturing sector and will take place on 27th April at the W Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

Additive Manufacturing the Future 2023 will bring together global additive manufacturing and 3D printing experts, industry giants, and relevant stakeholders for a comprehensive dialogue and expert-level networking on various breakthrough technologies in the field.

The seminar will highlight the critical challenges and opportunities for the industry and discuss emerging trends that are shaping and empowering this burgeoning sector.

Additive manufacturing, also commonly referred to as 3D printing, has recently become a top contender among traditional advanced manufacturing technologies in sectors including aerospace, automotive, space, biomedical, oil and gas, and tooling, among others.

Dr. Nesma Aboulkhair, Director of Additive Manufacturing, Advanced Materials Research Centre, will headline the opening session on “Unlocking the potential in laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing”.

“Additive manufacturing is a relatively new entrant on the UAE’s manufacturing landscape and such events expand our understanding of this unique and fast-paced discipline. In addition, they help accelerate the discovery of transformative solutions that can benefit the UAE and other countries worldwide. This seminar offers a critical platform for strategic synergies in additive manufacturing R&D and will undoubtedly boost TII’s credibility as a leading hub of knowledge, collaborations, and technological expertise in additive manufacturing in the UAE and beyond,” noted Dr. Aboulkhair.
