As a trade association and / or network organizations, you can also reserve a room (small) through us at Brabanthallen. Think of a members meeting, board meeting or a project team meeting. Or maybe you would like to organize your own seminar during the Kunststoffenbeurs. The organization is happy to include your meeting in communication. It goes without saying that we think along with you here.

AM Masterclass2

Brainport Eindhoven and Mikrocentrum organize during Kunststoffenbeurs 2022 together an AM Masterclass

In the AM Masterclasses companies can get inspired about the possibilities of additive manufacturing. Per masterclass the participants get clear information about the possibilities to start or scale up 3D printing in a specific sector. Topics include the reason, returns, results, investments and the process of implementation. The masterclass is relevant for manufacturing companies, end users who have yet to be introduced to this manufacturing technology, as well as manufacturing technology suppliers who want to explore the AM market. Participants choose in which application areas they want to gain knowledge or about which aspects of the technology they want to learn. In addition, in the master classes we work with concrete business cases, we refer to training courses and we offer opportunities, through vouchers or innovation partnerships, to start exploring and experimenting with your desired applications. That is why we speak of a "learning community".

During the Kunststoffenbeurs 2022, lectures will focus the topics of flexible digital production, automation of single piece production, sustainable materials and the possibilities of multi-material printing.

The masterclasses are made possible by: Brainport Industries, K3d-addfab, AMcubator, Rai Automotive Industry NL, fieldlab MM3D, Brabant Development Corporation, Smart Industry Hub Zuid.
