Screw Extrusion-Based Additive Manufacturing – Trends, Applications and Developments


Date: 24. – 25. April 2024

The use of screw extrusion-based additive manufacturing processes has seen a steady development in recent years and opens up numerous new possibilities. By using thermoplastic pellets instead of filaments, this technology allows for the creation of complex and large scale 3D structures, making it an ideal choice for applications in various fields, from automotive to architecture. Accompanying its growing popularity, this young technology sees continuous developments, ranging from new applications and materials to improved path-generation and machine technologies. This makes it all the more important to stay on top of these developments.

The focus of the symposium is on the latest trends, applications and developments in screw extrusion-based additive manufacturing. We aim to bring together experts from different domains including system manufacturers, material providers, software companies, users and researchers to share, discuss and explore the possibilities and challenges of this exciting technology. The symposium will feature four sessions covering applications and challenges, materials and design, data processing and slicing, and manufacturing processes. Don't miss out on the opportunity to gain an insight into the latest developments in screw extrusion-based additive manufacturing, expand your personal network and be a part of this exciting field. The language of all talks will be English, making it accessible to an international audience. Register now for the symposium!
