Workshop "Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing"


Call for Abstracts:
Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing

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” from the LZH and IPeG, we want to address what factors are important and how scientists and companies can use them for their advantage.

Submit your abstract by 25 May 2022
Informal abstracts of max. 150 words can be submitted by email to until 25 May 2022. Our scientific committee will arrange the workshop program from a selection of your submitted papers.

General information:
Additive Manufacturing processes are already being used successfully in wide-ranging areas such as the automotive industry, mechanical and plant engineering and medical technology. Due to high flexibility, targeted variation of the machine parameters and the often contactless production, there is a considerable added value compared to conventional processes. A decisive factor in the process chain of Additive Manufacturing is the design. Components can be newly or differently designed and optimized, for example, with regard to their topology. For an evaluation of suitability, potentials and requirements must be specified, geometries must be designed and components must be simulated and validated. In addition, a close link between internal company processes and business models and design is necessary.

Workshop Topics:

Design and Optimization for Additive Manufacturing
Contributions to the development and design of components. Ensuring functional requirements and manufacturability as well as methods and tools for optimization components.
Finding solutions for concepts and design.

Manufacturing and Build Quality
Contributions to production processes, quality management, documentation and compliance with quality standards. Enabling new materials and production technics.

Process Chain and Business Models
Contributions to the integration of Additive Manufacturing processes into existing processes, measures to increase value creation and the creation of new business models.

Digitalization and Mass Customized Production
Contributions to the Digitalization of Additive Manufacturing. Creating solutions for tools and methods for digitalizing materials, part programming and standardization. Helping companies to create new processes and products needed by the market.


Informal abstracts of max. 150 words can be submitted by email to until 25 May 2022. Papers of accepted abstracts will be published in an ISBN numbered book by Springer Vieweg.
