Discover NLR new technology developments at Industrial Technologies 2016

The Industrial Technologies Conference is the largest networking conference in the field of new production technologies, materials, nanotechnology, biotechnology and digitalisation in Europe, with high level delegates. The conference brings together research, industry, education, finance and policy from manufacturing and process industry and technology domains from all over Europe to identify priorities that are crucial to strengthen the European industrial innovation ecosystem.


NLR invites you to attend one of our events:

22 – 23 June, 09:30 – 18:00
NLR ‘Cube’ at the Ground Floor of the conference space
Meet our NLR colleagues at our modest ‘cube’ and get your personal update on our latest developments on automated compositie manufacturing and 3D Metal Additive Manufacturing.


22 June, 13:30 – 15:00 
Workshop: ‘Revolution by Technology and Innovation – Building Ecosystems for Advanced Materials & Components for Transport’

Site Visit – NLR Netherlands Aerospace Centre / Pilot Plant Automated Composite Manufacturing

In 2015 NLR and Fokker established a manufacturing plant for composite aircraft components: the  Automated Composite Manufacturing pilot Plant (ACM-PP). The plant will produce composite landing gear components while also developing new manufacturing techniques for high performance composites. Other high-tech companies that develop composites can also use the facility for testing their materials and automating production processes.

The site visit will also take to our 3D Metal Additive Manufacturing Technology Centre where we are developing processes for certified 3D metal printing components.

You need to register for the site visit. Places are limited. For more information:


Industrial Technologies 2016 — Creating a Smart Europe is organized as an associated event of the Netherlands Presidency of the Council of the European Union in the first half of 2016.
