Additive manufacturing, commonly referred to as 3D printing, has enabled transformative change in industries such as aerospace and automotive. From prototyping to final production, polymers and metal powders can create seemingly impossible shapes. However, the technology is yet to reach mainstream adoption in oil and gas.

Our additive manufacturing event will open the discussion on applications and potential benefit for the oil and gas industry.

Could we produce critical spares on demand, recreating obsolete and out of stock parts for aged infrastructures? Could it change logistics by 3D printing on-site, therefore reducing time to deliver and stock levels? Could it even be used to repair damaged equipment by applying remanufacturing techniques?

Our expert speakers will address these questions and many more:

  • Hoda Amel, Advanced Research Engineer Additive Manufacturing, The Manufacturing Technology Centre
  • Utkarsha Ankalkhope, Senior Research Engineer in Additive Manufacturing, The Manufacturing Technology Centre
  • Tom White, Innovation Owner, Marine & Offshore, Lloyd’s Register

The event is collaboration with the Manufacturing Technology Centre, part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, which is at the forefront of technology innovation in additive manufacturing.
