Join our community event - this year virtually ...


Our most important aim is to keep you, our valued customers safe. But we miss you too much ... Therefore, we decided to hold our annual event virtually this year. We hope to gather physically in 2021 in Seville, Spain on October 4-7, 2021 (book your agenda already)! Until then, let's meet in the virtual space to keep yourself up-to-date and talk to your peers. 



The ICME Conference 2020, a HxGN LIVE event is a 3-days intensive online conference for executives, R&D, manufacturing professionals, engineers, and designers to learn, explore and share about Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) to enable companies to blur the boundaries between manufacturing, materials and part performance for the optimal design of innovative quality products. 

Join hundreds of participants across the globe at this free, 3-day event to listen to inspiring keynotes, thought leaders of the industries, best-in-class presenters from Material Suppliers, Tiers and OEMs from around the world. If you are using ICME or looking into using it to accelerate the rate of production from concept to reality, this event is for you.

About the conference 


 

This year's theme is "connect"

  • Connect  manufacturing and product performance. 
    The objective is to make the material and the corresponding transformation process as key design parameters aimed at optimizing the product performance and overall quality of the final product. This is enabled by Digimat multi-scale modeling capabilities and the ability to model the effect of the material microstructure, induced by the material microstructure, on the part performance. The manufacturing processes we will cover include injection molding, Compressing Molding, 3D printing, Automatic Fiber Placement, Curing, …

  • Connect the physical and virtual worlds.
    In the section we will show how to use surface or volume measurements to augment virtual engineering and make simulation more accurate and insightful.  Optical or CT Scanning will be used to capture the actual, as manufactured, geometry and/or material micro-structure.  This microstructure (e.g. Fiber orientation, porosity, defects, …) can then be used as an input for subsequent multi-scale modeling of the part performance.

  • Connect material suppliers & end users
    The ultimate part performance can only be obtained by op
    timizing and connecting across disciplines (manufacturing, material, parts) and the eco-system (material suppliers, part producers, OEMs, and technology providers).  In this part we will see how ICME can leverage the eco-system for a better use of materials in product design.


Why Attend? 



  • Get an insight how to seamlessly connect internal divisional siloes between traditionally separate teams within your company
  • Learn from thought leaders and inspiring keynotes from around the world how to significantly accelerate the rate of production from concept to reality
  • Listen to leading industry speakers from around the world how to predict the performance of final products at the concept stage
  • Explore the roadmap of Digimat and MaterialCneter, the backbone of the 10xICME Solution
  • Learn how to make your digital twin of your manufacturing line
  • Learn how to turn your industry 4.0 challenges, such as sustainability into an opportunity
  • Meet our experts online and attend a virtual coffee break with your industry peers
