demands will be placed on materials, presenting new opportunities for plastics producers and compounders


3D printing is growing globally. The technology has already secured its place as a powerful tool for design and prototyping and is now increasingly being considered for manufacture of low volume and highly customised final-parts. Polymers for 3D Printing is a new conference that will provide a timely interna- tional learning opportunity for anyone considering the development of specialised polymers for 3D printing, filament extrusion, or rapid prototype production. The two-day event takes place on 11-12 December 2018 in Dusseldorf in Germany. This article previews the expert speakers sharing their insight at the event. The conference will open with an additive manufacturing overview delivered by Dr Suveni Kreimeler, Head of the Part Design/Materials Technology Department at IKV (Institute of Plastics Processing) in Germany. Then Dr Luca Chichio, Business Development Manager for Elix Polymers in Spain, will look at the evolving property require- ments of ABS for additive manufacturing technol-

ogy, and Deepak Venkatraman, Applications Development Engineer at Natureworks in the US, will share details of some of the company’s develop- ments in PLA for industrial 3D printing applications. The next session will be opened by John Jones,


EMEA Materials Business Group Director at Stratasys in Germany, who will showcase some of the exciting and unlimited innovation potential of 3D printing. Dr Richard Janssen, Business Devel- opment Manager at the Brightlands Material Centre in the Netherlands, will explore the chal- lenges and opportunities of additive manufactur- ing using continuous fibre. Then Brian Alexander, Global Product and Application Manager at Solvay Speciality Polymers in Germany, will speak about tailored high-performance materials for additive manufacturing and related simulation. Lukas Pawelczyk, Senior Manager Additive Manufacturing at Arburg in Germany, will discuss the company’s experience with new materials for rapid prototyping and low volume production.
