Over the two days, the Alliance held two conferences at the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) in Madrid.

On 30 and 31 May, IK shared the latest trends in additive manufacturing and non-destructive testing with representatives from more than 150 companies in Spain. Over the two days, the Alliance held two conferences at the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) in Madrid.

The first of the conferences, entitled "NDT Technologies: current situation and short-term outlook", was attended by over 40 representatives from different companies. Specialists at the Alliance provided participants with information about the latest technologies, applications and trends in non-destructive testing and explained the advantages of applying them, which include less risk and an increase in production efficiency.

The event also enjoyed the presence of an expert from Navantia, who spoke about the technologies used by the company to meet their needs in relation to non-destructive testing.

The second conference took place on 31 May, under the title "Impact of additive manufacturing on the industry: technological vision and latest trends". During the conference, IK4 provided information to 115 companies from all over Spain, about the new opportunities opening up as a result of this innovative method of industrial production. This method allows the manufacture of structures and pieces by superimposing successive layers of material, whereas with traditional methods the material is eliminated instead of added.

A representative from Airbus Getafe opened the speeches. He explained the additive manufacturing solutions applied by the company in its processes, the lines of work they wish to address in the future, and their overall view of the implementation of this technology in the industry.

The presentations given on both days are available on the company’s respective websites:
