F&L Asia Ltd. recently announced the wide variety of exciting topics that will be presented by renowned market leaders at its annual fuels and lubricants industry conference, F+L Week 2015. Among the presentations at the upcoming conference, designed to inspire leadership, offer strategy and provide networking opportunities, will be a riveting keynote address on 3D Printing in the automotive industry.
A history-making innovation, 3D auto printing paves the way for direct digital manufacturing to significantly provide fast and innovative sustainability solutions to the automotive industry. As the CEO and co-founder of Local Motors, a game-changing technology company that designs, builds and sells vehicles, Rogers is certainly not one to shy from shaking the status quo and delivering manufacturers and consumers alike a new and more immediate experience.
Local Motors developed the world’s first open-source automobile, the Rally Fighter. In the past year, the company has harnessed open-source design and 3D printing to design and build the world’s first 3D-printed car called the Strati. Rogers will be speaking on the development, production and unveiling of the Strati, which took its first drive on 13 Sept. 2014.
Indeed, the vast potential of 3D printing has manifested into reality for the automotive industry. With collaboration and this emergent technology, the industry is well positioned to expand its manufacturing capability, sustainability and growth. At the recent North American International Auto Show, the company unveiled two new factory locations. It plans to bring the first fleet of 3D printed vehicles to the road in 2015.
Rogers’ enticing keynote presentation on 3D printing in the automotive industry will be featured at F&L Week 2015, which will be held on 10th-13th March 2015 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in the Marina Bay area in Singapore, site of Formula One’s only night street-race.
