Jointly organised by the Yorkshire West and Yorkshire West local networks.


About this event

Presenter Professor Iain Todd, Professor of Metallurgy, University of Sheffield

Professor Todd is the head of the Mercury Centre at the University of Sheffield, where the development of advanced manufacturing processes is a major ERDF funded project providing support to manufacturing businesses throughout the Yorkshire and Humber Region. 3D Printing / Additive Manufacture has caught the imagination of the public, politicians and industrialists in a way that very few manufacturing technologies have ever managed to. This intense interest leads to bold claims about what the future will bring us - printed boby parts, houses, electronics, redistributed manufacture etc. and all of these sounds like "hype". In this lecture such claims will be examined in detail as will the potential for the technology to disrupt present manufacturing practices and perhaps yield new possibilities for manufacturers and perhaps society as a whole.
