30 to 40% of the cost of a metal additive manufacturing part is linked to post-processing operations. This is a crucial stage to master when a company is producing Additive Manufacturing parts. This often includes finishing operations. Solutions for improving surface finish will be presented, based on different types of part.



5pm-6pm : The employability of atypical profiles, by Hugues de Combarel, President of Atypie Conseil

Conference organized by Atypie Conseil - Auditorium


Faced with the difficulty of recruiting in industry, this conference suggests that manufacturers innovate in terms of management and work organization. The aim is to recruit, detect, train and motivate atypical profiles internally. They represent around 20% of the population and are a real asset for every company. This conference will give companies of all sizes a better understanding of how atypical profiles work, so that they can make the most of the (hidden) talents of these "non-standard" human resources.



6pm-7pm : The future of the automotive sector

Conference organized by Jean Lain - Auditorium


Two top managers from the Jean Lain Group will share their customer and supplier experience in the automotive sector with bar turning and mechanical manufacturing professionals.

This conference, organized by Rochexpo, SNDEC and Agence Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Entreprises, will be followed by a cocktail offered by our 2 partners.

Indeed, the SNDEC and the Agence Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Entreprises are working to support their members in the transformation of the automotive market through a rich action plan that will be at the heart of the evening's discussions. An Auto Club has been set up by Eric Valentini of Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Entreprises Haute-Savoie, in partnership with SNDEC and the CARA competitiveness cluster. These quarterly meetings provide an opportunity to review the state of the industry in figures and prospects, and identify avenues for diversification. Come and talk to the Club's members at this automotive evening, and find out about the support available.
