Aluminum is one of the most versatile and widely used metals in manufacturing, but its unique chemical and physical properties can also make it one of the most challenging to weld. Join us at the headquarters of the American Welding Society in Miami, FL, on September 20-21, where industry experts will explore cutting-edge aluminum welding technologies.

Now, in a new two-day format, this conference will start by exploring existing core aluminum joining technologies, then follow with in-depth focus on the latest advances in the field.

During this popular annual conference, a distinguished panel of aluminum industry experts will survey the current landscape of aluminum welding technology and practice. This year also features a new seminar format. The first day will continue to emphasize core aluminum joining technologies, while the second day will focus on new joining technologies and new aluminum applications.

The conference will also provide several opportunities to network informally with speakers and other participants.

Covering rapid prototyping, CAD/CAM software development, 3D laser engraving and a wide selection of 3D printers, the inaugural 3D Printing Asia fair will be held concurrently with Asiamold 2016. Both events will run from September 20-22 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou. This inaugural fair is estimated to attract 100 exhibitors and more than 10,000 professional visitors, and cover 8,000 sq m of exhibition space as China continues to see strong demand for 3D printing technologies and related products.

For more information regarding 3D Printing Asia, please click here.
 
Over the years, additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies have been developing worldwide and particularly in China. Due to growing demand for higher precision technologies coupled with tighter R&D budgets and lead times, the value of 3D printing technologies has never been greater. Acknowledging the potential for industry growth, 3D Printing Asia, previously a highlighted zone at Asiamold, is now being transformed into an exhibition of its own in 2016.
 
The decision to turn the 3D Printing Asia Zone into a fair has been prompted by its growing success. Since the zone’s establishment in 2013, it has expanded significantly in terms of exhibitor participation numbers and exhibition space. In 2015, it welcomed more than 60 domestic and international brands, a 25 percent increase from previous editions.

A number of prominent exhibitors are already confirmed to join, including DSM Desotech Specialty Chemical, Guangdong Hanbang 3D Technology, Runice Power Transmission, Shanghai Union 3D Technology, Shanghai Ureal Technology, Shenzhen Soongon Technology, Z Rapid Technologies and many others.
 
Exhibitors planning to participate in the inaugural fair will be strategically categorized to facilitate sourcing and visitor flow. Manufacturers of industrial-grade 3D printers will be located near mold makers from Asiamold to optimize the synergies between these sectors. Meanwhile, personal 3D printer manufacturers and suppliers will be placed next to 3D printing material and component manufacturers given the two sectors complement each other. These new arrangements will not only help buyers to better meet their sourcing needs, but they will also help exhibitors to establish cross-sector partnerships.
 
In addition to the exhibition, a comprehensive collection of fringe events will be hosted to help raise awareness of the benefits 3D printing offers. Highlighted topics for 2016 include 3D metal printing for the automotive and aerospace industries, metal printing materials and compounds, applications and development of 3D printing technologies in both the education and medial sectors, and many others.

Known for its versatility, 3D printing technology can be used in a range of industrial applications and has become a mainstream tool for production in many industries. According to a Wohlers Associates’ report, the global sales of 3D printers experienced an average annual growth rate of 33.8 percent over the past three years. By 2020, the global 3D printing market is expected to be worth $21.2 billion.
 
Currently, 3D printing is regarded as one of the most important and fastest growing manufacturing industries in China. Backed by the government, it is projected that the market size for the sector in China will grow at an average rate of approximately 40 percent and exceed $3.1 billion by 2018, according to a Research and Markets’ report. 3D Printing Asia will help exhibitors capitalize on ample business opportunities in China’s automotive, education and medical sectors.
