RAPID + TCT event 2018
April 23 @ 8 h 00 min - April 26 @ 17 h 00 min
April 23-26. RAPID + TCT, now in its 28th year, is a leading forum for ideas and showcase of technology in the still growing and ever-evolving world of 3D printing (3DP).
As one of fastest-growing AM/3DP application areas, even more growth is expected for biomedical/medical applications. More than 97 percent of medical AM/3DP professionals expect the use and application to continue to grow (SME Medical AM/3DP Survey, December 2017). Once again, RAPID + TCT’s Medical Manufacturing Innovations Program (MMI) will highlight this growth through conference sessions and other programming. The event has also become a yearly meeting place for workgroups such as the SME Medical Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing Workgroup, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 3D Printing Special Interest Group, and the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Workgroup 17.
Collaboration between device manufacturers, clinicians, technology developers, and researchers in additive manufacturing (AM) will be on full display at the Fort Worth Convention Center during the event dedicated to SMEs.
