6th International Conference on Additive Technologies iCAT 2016

The Rapid Prototyping and Innovative Manufacturing Network - RAPIMAN is organising the 6th International Conference on Additive Technologies that will be held between November 29th and 30th, in Nürenberg, Germany.

Rapid development and the raise of awareness of possibilities offered by the emerging Additive Manufacturing technologies lead to several initiatives and funding schemes that try to promote the AM technologies to the industrial level. One of such initiatives and amongst the most prominent ones is Collaborative Research Center 814 - Additive Manufacturing, established in 2011 at the Friedrich - Alexander University Erlangen-Nürenberg. To promote the findings and astonishing results of their research work the team joined forces with RAPIMAN in organising the 6th iCAT - the conference that has strived to transfer the knowledge between academia and industry for the last 12 years.

The iCAT 2016 will be held in Nürenberg (Germany), Bavaria's second-largest city and the unofficial capital of Franconia. Nürenberg is alive with visitors year-round, but especially during the world famous Christkindlesmarkt. Nürenberg's Christmas market (November 25 - December 24, 2016) is one of Germany's oldest fairs and located in the heart of Nürenberg.

At the 29th and 30th of November we will make Nürenberg's airport a centerpoint of Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing. The participants will be hosted by:

  • The Collaborative Research Center 814 - Additive Manufacturing at Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen - Nürenberg, and
  • The Bayerisches Laserzentrum, Erlangen
The conference will be co-organised by the Production Engineering Institute of the University of Maribor and DAAAM International Vienna.

The conference will once again bring together experts, researchers, experienced users, and newcomers, from the additive manufacturing field.

iCAT 2016's special topics:

  • Engineers and Medical Doctors working hand in hand
  • Art & Design - expanding creativity with Additive Technologies
