Industry 4.0 at Volkswagen

Keynote Speaker: Celso Luis Placeres, Volkswagen South America

Industry 4.0 –so-called “Advanced Manufacturing”– has been stimulating most industries to research new forms of self-management with fully interconnected information, and to look for new procedures that will enable maximum product customization. It has also led them to try and figure out the best ways to connect data on production and logistics. Within this timeframe, this session will look into Industry 4.0’s applicability to Volkswagen’s context, and describe the use of important tools such as Digital Factory, Virtual Reality and 3D Printing, among others.


A revolution in healthcare devices: how 3D printing is revolutionizing the industry with biocompatible materials.

Daniel Huamani, 3D Criar

The possibilities of desktop 3D printing are contributing to a revolution in development processes in the healthcare industry. This session will explore how a case study at São Paulo’s Hospital das Clínicas can help us understand the new opportunities with high quality equipment and biocompatible materials.

Technology in the classroom

Emanuel Campos, Alcateia

How STEM / STEAM technology can be used in the classroom, not only to engage students but also to better prepare them for 4.0 manufacturing and tomorrow’s industry.


How to prepare engineers for the revolution, from design to manufacture?

Rodrigo Patrício de Arruda, Insper

The new technologies of design for additive manufacturing have enabled engineers to quickly develop innovative and robust customized products. However, most efforts have had to focus on adapting the “traditional” mindset to the new possibilities. The greatest potential can be achieved by building a solid foundation of basic knowledge which includes this new manufacturing model. After realizing this, the Research and Education Institute (Insper) developed its engineering syllabus to equip its next engineers for this ongoing revolution. The first reports, reviews and results on the aims and approaches of the syllabus will be presented in this session, as a contribution to support the strategic formation of this great field of knowledge.

Thermoplastic materials for 3D printing

Edson Ferreira da Silva, Gravaplast 3D

This session will expand on the possibilities of using different resins whose properties and dynamics are suitable for application in various segments of the 3D printing market.

3D printing applied to manufacturing

Alex Wilson Valentini Borro, GTMax3D

Leaving prototyping and entering manufacturing, see how to apply 3D printing in the industrialization of equipment, thus reducing costs, production time and making new products possible.

Additive manufacturing: practical experience in the concept of advanced manufacturing and Brazilian standardization

Keynote Speakers: Anita Dedding, ABIMAQ and Valmir Fleischmann, VirtualCAE

This session will focus on the initiatives by the Brazilian machinery and equipment industry towards design development within the concept of Advanced Manufacturing / Industry 4.0. The question is how to use information and communication technology to promote engineering talent in companies that face the challenges of a technological trend in which traditional enterprise resource management programs and all productive processes must be integrated with additive manufacturing, machine-to-machine communication, power management, virtual commissioning, augmented reality, production management systems and product lifecycle management. The session will look at the mirror committee on ISO / TC 261, whose scope covers standardization of additive manufacturing, encompassing procedures, process chains (hardware and software), supply contracts, quality parameters and all kinds of fundamentals with regard to terminology, requirements, test methods and general issues. A topology optimization software called Virtual PYXIS will be used to illustrate how additive a manufacturing process chain works. It has been developed by VirtualCAE, a Brazilian company which creates optimized geometries for additive manufacturing.


The 3D printing and virtual reality art market

Marcelo Pasqua da Costa, La Matta TV and 3D Procer

This session will showcase leading projects involving 3D printing and major brands in various fields, from the gaming market to national and international jewelry making. A 3D sculpture project made with virtual reality and 3D printing will also be presented.

The revolution of 3D printing in healthcare

Dr. Bruno de Castro Ferreira Barreto, Materialise

Faced with the emergence of complex surgical cases and the wide range of treatments available in medicine, surgeons are often challenged to make decisions without having a full understanding of the scenario they are dealing with. Because of this, 3D printing has been growing steadily in healthcare and has been widely used in case studies, planning of surgical interventions, training of complex procedures, and generating patient-specific devices. The use of anatomical models from patients’ images has been the current medical focus worldwide for some time, as it brings a new perspective on treatments, helps professionals to make more confident decisions, and increases the predictability of results.

The 3D revolution in dentistry

Klaus Gargitter, Monster Filamentos; and Jackson Rodrigo Signor, Dental Factory

The use of various 3D printing technologies in dentistry, especially SLA and DLP, is here to stay. FDM technology is still in its early stages, as it still delivers lower resolution when compared to the other two. One of the new possibilities in dentistry is the move from plaster orthodontic models to FDM prints, especially for its lower production costs. A polymer composite filament will be presented which delivers good performance in printing speed, detailing and contrast, delivering printed objects that meet the requirements of practitioners who have already adhered to digital dentistry.



Healthcare applications of 3D printing

Keynote Speaker: Felipe Marques, BioArchitects

How advances in 3D technology are impacting healthcare and its practical applications.


Creativity, fashion and design: a relationship between digital manufacturing and technological (re)evolution to conscientiously achieve comfort and performance

Prof. Dr. Guto Marinho – Santa Marcelina School

Clothes and footwear must embody aesthetic solutions combined with comfort and performance. With technological advances such as 3D printing, future scenarios look very promising and exciting. There is a huge range of possibilities to explore. And as it should be in any sector, we must be conscious to make sure we cause the least environmental impact. This session will explore metadesign concepts for the fashion of the future.

Enhance creativity by making lots of mistakes, but cheaper and faster: 3D printing as a prototyping process accelerator

Gilson da Silva Domingues, São Paulo’s Fine Arts University Center

In essence, a prototype has 3 attributes, which are closely linked to its creator’s ideas and imagination: it communicates, tests and improves ideas. To illustrate the point, this session will focus on the case of the construction of a small electric car by product design students using 3D printing techniques at the Fine Arts University Center.​

3D printing and its impact on the future of humanity

André Guerreiro Junior, Rede Fab Lab Brasil

By looking at 3D printers in businesses, hospitals, shops and homes, this session will show how they are revolutionizing traditional manufacturing models.


Bioimpression of tissues and organs: the best of new technologies aimed at medicine 4.0

Janaina de Andréa Dernowsek, CTI Renato Archer

Medicine 4.0, alluding to industry 4.0, strongly embraces biofabrication of tissues and organs, drawing on a myriad of emerging technologies, especially in the field of regenerative medicine, personalized treatment and diagnostics, and the discovery of new drugs. Thus, the advancement of 3D printing, bioprinting, microfluidics, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, imaging, modeling and computational simulation will be among the areas with the greatest impact on health and, consequently, intense economic growth.
