TCT Live & MM Live: Key Focus on Education for the Industry

Cheshire, UK, 14th May 2009: At the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 20th – 21st October 2009, the TCT Live and MM Live show will have a key focus on Education for the Industry. The shows will boast three seminar theatres covering a wide range of technologies and two auditoriums dedicated to advancing knowledge within the Additive Manufacturing and Micro Manufacturing industries.

This year more than ever before, companies are looking to source cutting-edge techniques and gain expert knowledge to help them stay ahead of the competition. With this in mind all seminars and conferences at TCT Live and MM Live are completely free to attend and are accessible to all visitors.

The Additive Manufacturing Conference is one of the most renowned conferences on the subject in Europe. Professionals from all over the world travel to TCT to hear from the leading experts who strive to advance the use of additive manufacturing technologies throughout industry. As a way of underlining its complete commitment to the sector, TCT has removed all registration fees and is opening its doors to all visitors. The quality of papers already confirmed suggests that once again the TCT Conference will be a huge success.

Following its successful launch last year, the Micro Manufacturing Technology Conference has been expanded to run over the two days allowing a broader range of topics to be discussed by even more of the industry’s most accomplished professionals. A variety of topics relevant to all manufacturing sectors will be covered — from a state of the industry overview to in-depth discussions on micro moulding, micro milling, micro EDM and assembly.

TCT Live and MM Live 2009 will also see the return of the successful Technology for Jewellery Seminar, which will take designers through the full design-to-market cycle, from effective use of CAD (computer aided design), to prototyping models, casting, micro cutting, milling and welding.  Also returning is the ever-popular RP&M Technology Introductory sessions, presented by industry expert Graham Tromans, who will give newcomers to ‘rapid’ technologies an overview of what’s available and how to access them.

New for 2009 is the exciting introduction of four new seminars: Inspection, Digitizing and Metrology Seminar; CAD/CAM/CAE stream; RP&M in Architecture; and Technology for the Dental Industry. These seminars will highlight the technological breakthroughs in these sectors with case studies and demonstrations.

Visitors to either shows will have full free of charge access to all seminars. Visitors to the Additive Manufacturing Conference and Micro Manufacturing Technology Conference must be pre-registered online to be guaranteed access on the day.

By offering a blend of live technical experience on the show floor coupled with a huge range of live educational seminars, TCT Live and MM Live are breaking the mould for engineering and manufacturing events.
