These proceedings exchange ideas and knowledge among engineers, designers and managers on how to support real-world value chains by developing additive manufactured series products. The papers from the conference show a holistic, multidisciplinary view.
Mirko Meboldt completed his doctorial studies at the Institute of Product Engineering Karlsruhe (IPEK), Germany. In 2012 he was appointed as a full professor of product development and engineering design at ETH Zurich. His main research focuses on the development of new products in the field of mechanical engineering industries, biomedical applications and associated technologies. He currently works in the field of engineering design and product development, specialising in user-oriented product innovations, new production technologies and challenging applications.
Christoph Klahn has a PhD in laser additive-manufactured, gas-permeable materials for industrial applications from Hamburg University of Technology, Germany. He is the Head of Design for the Additive Manufacturing group at ETH Product Development Group pd|z and at Inspire AG since 2013. The goal of his work is to transfer knowledge of these new manufacturing processes to the Swiss industry.
