SAE International 2018 Additive Manufacturing in Motion Symposium Announces Keynote Speaker

SAE International announces that Arconic VP Dr. Markus Heinimann will be one of four keynote speakers at the SAE 2018 Additive Manufacturing in Motion Symposium which will convene next week at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, on March 13-14, 2018. This event is the premier additive manufacturing event for the mobility industry and focuses on how to maximize the many benefits of additive manufacturing to the automobile and aerospace industries.

Dr. Heinimann is the Vice President, Engineered Product and Process Technology for Arconic. In this role, Markus is leading the development and execution of the technology strategy for Arconic’s Engineered Structures (AES) business unit. He is responsible for advancing new and existing material, process, product and manufacturing technologies for metallic materials, machining and structural assemblies to meet the needs of the aerospace, defense, energy and other high tech segments.  Dr. Heinimann has more than 25 years of aerospace experience in engineering and technology development. 

Dr. Heinimann’s keynote presentation is entitled “From the Lab to the Skies: Printing the Future of Flight.” It will explore how additive manufacturing, which promises lighter, more complex airframe and engine components produced cheaper and faster, is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after technologies in aerospace manufacturing.  He will demonstrate how Arconic is using its comprehensive capabilities in a variety of metals-based additive technologies, including direct, indirect and hybrid techniques, to take 3D printing out of the lab and into the skies—and help shape the future of aerospace manufacturing.

We invite you to join us next week to hear Dr. Heinimann’s presentation on Tuesday, March 13 from 1:30-2:15 p.m. as well as join us for the full conference. To learn more about the SAE Additive Manufacturing in Motion Symposium or to register, visit
