Workshop "Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing"

27 September 2022

On September 27, 2022 the workshop "Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing" from the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), together with the Institute for Product Development (IPeG) of the Leibniz University Hannover, will take place as an in-person event.

If an in-person event is not practicable, due tue to the pandemic development, the workshop will take place online.

General information:
Additive Manufacturing enables innovative products in many areas, such as the automotive industries, machinery and plant engineering, medical technology or even in consumer sector. The requirements for production are often completely different from those for conventional processes. In the workshop “Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing” we want to address what factors are important and how scientists and companies can use them for their advantage.
