Advanced Manufacturing Week

8-12 July 2024

Additive manufacturing, 5G networks, augmented reality and more – a wide range of novel technologies are finally maturing and finding vital applications in the most cutting-edge and productive factories. As manufacturers navigate challenges including supply chain disruption, sustainability demands and economic uncertainty, engineers need expert knowledge of new approaches to efficiency and innovation.

The agenda for Advanced Manufacturing 2024 will be coming soon. Topics will include:

  • Robotics – Working alongside humans to boost productivity
  • Automation – Maximising factory efficiency 
  • Simulation & modelling – Getting designs right first time 
  • 3D printing – Enabling new shapes, structures, and properties 
  • Energy & sustainability – Cutting carbon emissions while maintaining profit 
  • Digital transformation – Introducing better ways of working    
  • Industrial metaverse – Taking engineering and design into a new dimension
  • Advanced materials – Providing new capabilities
  • Microgravity manufacturing – Freeing 3D printing from the constraints of gravity
  • Sustainable EV components – Making electric vehicles truly sustainable 
  • Generative design – Using powerful algorithms to streamline design
