On Wednesday, May 10, GABA – the German American Business Association – organise an event on how additive manufacturing and smart manufacturing are revolutionising the world.
3D Printing – or Additive Manufacturing – and Smart Manufacturing (internet or network connected and computer controlled manufacturing equipment and processes) The process of how novel manufacturing and monitoring techniques are currently revolutionizing entire industries is often referred to as the ‘fourth Industrial Revolution’ or ‘Industry 4.0’.
Manufacturers will be challenged to learn from their data not only to gain an edge in production, but to develop adaptive complementary options and services for their products, generating new revenue streams. Additive Manufacturing is also upending conventional wisdom on the supply side. Rather than mass produce, store and ship a tangible product, ‘manufacturers’ of the future may develop designs, technology, and knowhow that enable their customers to make customized products onsite,
in real time, as needed.
DWF Law is main sponsor of this 3D printing event that will be held in Irvine, California from 05:30 PM– 08:30 PM Pacific. DWF Law are educating companies worldwide about the legal implications of 3D printing, for example by participating in panel discussions, (co-)organising events, and writing articles on legal issues related to additive manufacturing.
