Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park (San Sebastian)
November 6 and 7, 2019

Additive manufacturing has been incorporated into landscape of industrial production technologies and we are on the verge of its massive implementation in several industries.

However, the surface quality of the components obtained by additive manufacturing is rather low. Besides that, there is the need to eliminate the supports generated during production. That makes the post-processing stage the real bottleneck of the additive manufacturing process.

The solutions currently used at industrial level need too many manual operations or involve an expense that can mean half of the final cost of the piece.

Finishing parts with complicated geometries in a proper and economical way can be a real challenge. That is why it is very important to know the advantages and limitations of the different technologies in order to select the most suitable for each type of piece and material according to its composition, geometry and functional requirements.

On November 6 and 7, CIDETEC Surface Engineering brings together in San Sebastian the main experts in post-processing technologies for materials produced by additive manufacturing at the PostAdditive 2019 conference. During these two days, the conference will offer a global overview of the latest advances and innovations and the industrial opportunities provided by these technologies.
