Mrs. Berta Gonzalvo, coordinator of the Barbara Project, presented the project at In(3D)ustry, the 2nd edition of the Additive and Advanced Manufacturing Glogal Hub 2017, held in Barcelona, Spain. The 3-day long global hub event connected top industrial end users and additive manufacturers to share success stories, exchange ideas, explore new solutions and realise technological needs within the sector of additive manufacturing.
Around 40 speakers from sectors such as motor vehicle manufacturing, aeronautics, retail, consumer goods, healthcare and industry used the IN(3D)USTRY arena, from Tuesday to Thursday, to explain the excellent moment that additive manufacturing is currently experiencing. Representatives from companies such as Renault, Adidas, Airbus, Sony and Siemens shared with leading manufacturers their experiences with the use of 3D printing and the challenges they will be facing in the future.
