The NAG is Industry Partner of Aerospace 3D Printing Conference

The NAG is the trade association for national and international organisations established in the Netherlands and active in aerospace & airport development. The NAG has more than 100 members who together represent 95% of the Dutch aviation industry’s revenue. The NAG’s mission is to continuously optimise the Dutch aviation industry’s ability to compete internationally. To realise this collective ambition worldwide, the NAG supports this sector through the development of expert knowledge, advocacy, access to the national and international market, and an extensive network.

Because the NAG focuses on Airport Development & Infrastructure, Aircraft Manufacturing and Aircraft Maintenance, we are able to operate within the whole aviation transport system. With local NAG representation in Brazil, France, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, plus excellent contacts with embassies and consulates, the NAG has an extensive international network that can be put to use for its members.

Members of the NAG are at the forefront of the aviation industry in the fields of new materials, production technology, maintenance efficiency, airport development, and the passenger experience during flights and in airports. To stay at the forefront of the industry, members work closely together and development programmes are carried out involving several years’ commitment by research institutes, industry and government in order to realise the desired objectives.

Disruptive innovation is stimulated by giving start-ups an important role in the innovation ecosystem. The NAG plays an active role in this, encouraging the emergence of start-ups which focus on aviation and connecting them to members and to national and international market parties. In 2015, the NAG decided to establish itself within this ecosystem in order to make optimal use of the innovative potential of start-ups.

The Online Aerospace 3D Printing Conference focuses on current applications of 3D printing in the aerospace industry, proof of concept, challenges & future prospects. The topics include engines, interior, airplane parts, UAV/UAS, manufacturing tools, space, Maintence, Repair and Overhaul (MRO). The conference offers aerospace professionals the chance to learn about and to look at challenges / opportunities from different perspectives using 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing in their professional use. Don’t miss out!

3D Printing can and will change the aviation industry, companies such as Airbus and Boeing are already using 3D printing and if you fly in a plane in the next few years, you are statistically likely to be flying in one that contains 3D printed parts. Not only OEMs, and suppliers are applying 3D Printing, but airlines are seeing the potential and are investing in 3D printing capabilities within their own facilities.
