Forum dedicated to Advanced Prototyping Solutions

on April 4, 2019
APS MEETINGS is a successful format of two days of conferences mixed with interactions and dedicated face-to-face meetings. An interesting format mixing technological education and discussion with AM experts searching for concrete solutions.

LSS GmbH has been an exhibitors the Advanced Prototyping Solutions Meeting in Lyon, France. Surrounded by Additive Manufacturing experts from industrial companies, APS meetings is an efficient format to interact with the end user. This forum was a great opportunity to interact with international players from various industries, like automotive, aerospace, medical, consumer goods, transportation and electric & electronics.

This intimate format allows tackling concrete problematics received from the end user, concerning additive manufacturing. As a 3DP machine supplier, LSS held a conference introducing the RAPTOR Series and its unique ThermoMeltâ„¢ technology, which allows for the cost efficient production of 3D parts made of the high-performance polymer PEKK. It has been a great opportunity to present various cases studies and to show how ThermoMeltTM is the next step to closing the gap between Industrial Additive Manufacturing and conventional manufacturing technologies.

Minutes of the APS Meeting

  • Cost optimization and post treatment of AM parts
  • Solutions for mass customizations
  • Higher and higher integration of user in AM technology
  • B2C AM solutions through demanding solutions and spare parts, not goodies
  • AM Simulation and prediction of final performances of 3D parts , indeed talking about industrialization it is a critical step to predict the final mechanical behavior of the 3D part
  • Growing demands to combine AM solutions with conventional fabrication methods.
