Shaping the future of manufacturing – What do the following have in common? Shoes, sunglasses, knee implants, hearing aids, aeroplane parts. The answer is they can all be made using 3D printing technology! Advanced manufacturing is changing how things are made, through digital technologies such as 3D printing, data analytics and artificial intelligence. Visit the demo area to see a sneak preview of the next industrial revolution in action, and to meet the engineers who are using 3D printing to make it happen! Run by engineers from IT Sligo’s PEM Research Centre and the I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Centre.


I-Form is an SFI Research Centre funded under the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres Programme and co-funded under the European Regional Development Fund.
