119 3D/4D Prinঞng Zone The 3D/4D Prinঞng Zone will be witness to all the ways three- and four- dimensional prinঞng are revoluঞonizing manufacturers' approach to new product creaঞon. This area invites you to explore the trends and technologies behind three- and four-dimensional prototypes, mold components and finished parts—direct from digital files. With more than 30 cuমng-edge exhibitors, the 3D/4D Prinঞng Zone offers exclusive access to the materials and equipment driving this groundbreaking technology. Introduced at NPE2012 as the Advanced Manufacturing area, the zone was defined for 3D prinঞng at NPE2015 and further refined to include 4D prinঞng for NPE2018. Highlights include: • The ho est topics in prinঞng—from conformal cooling and end-of-arm tooling to technology opঞons and material advancements. • Expert insight in to the wide range of uses for 3D/4D prinঞng—from automoঞve for prototyping to healthcare for lifesaving devices and medical components. A 3D P rinঞng Workshop—presented by Addive Manufacturing Media and Plascs Technology— will be held Wednesday, May 9, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., OCCC West Level 3, Room W331 and will examine everything related to 3D prinঞng from a plasঞcs processing perspecঞve (registraঞon fee required for admiance). 3D/4D Prinঞng Zone Exhibitors: S20147 Alpha Laser-US S22146 Aut omated Manufacturing Systems S23150 BOFA Americas, Inc.
