Actionable Insights: 5 Educational Sessions to Attend

Educational and industry thought leaders will present timely topics on how advanced ceramics and thermal management are fueling growth and innovation across industries — regardless of where you sit on the supply chain.

We encourage you to dig into the breadth of topics offered over the two-day conference, and mark you calendars for these suggested sessions:

  1. De-risking the Technical Ceramics Supply Chain — From Reshoring to Sustainability takes a strategic look at supply chains, focusing on current and coming global supply chain bottlenecks, balancing sustainability and global competition, and ways to achieve supply chain resilience.
  2. Unlocking the Promise of Solid-State Batteries With Ceramics answers key questions about the benefits and challenges of solid ceramic and hybrid ceramic-polymer separators in solid-state electric vehicle (EV) batteries — including how US EV battery suppliers may be ignoring sodium-ion and lithium-ion alternatives.
  3. Pushing the Limits of Manufacturing with Refractories and Advanced Ceramics explores how product demands in strategic industries such as aerospace and defense are pushing requirements and limitations for high-temperature manufacturing, the need for automated inspection and process controls, and an emerging role of heat-resistant ceramics.
  4. Innovating with Lead-Free and Textured Piezoceramics outlines the trend from bulk to thin film in piezoelectric applications, the current state and limitations of Barium Titanate (BTO) as an alternative to lead piezoelectric ceramic zirconate titanate (PTO), and other lead-free PZT alternatives on the horizon.
  5. Maturing Additive Manufacturing Processes for Complex Ceramic Parts debates the merits and readiness of technologies for 3D printing with ceramics, the applications end users are looking to produce, and how additive manufacturing of ceramics parts can be done at scale.
