Event Brief

Additive Manufacturing (AM), or Direct Manufacturing, also popularly known as 3-D printing, has promises to become the leading edge manufacturing technology today. While the technology is matured for polymeric materials, manufacturing of metallic parts are in the developmental phase, especially for structural components.

Because of its distinct advantages over conventional manufacturing, AM has become a world-wide phenomenon. This training course is designed to help understand the principles of the technology, its applications in various industries, and methodologies for product design, testing, and qualification in order to take full advantage of this emerging technology. This course will also discuss basic requirements for implementation, technological and economic impacts, and opportunities for further development in materials, processing, and products for specific industries. In addition, this course will discuss emerging trends in the AM industry with new developments in past year.

The course is divided in two parts, one for decision makers focusing on the applications and economic implications for implementing the AM technology. The second part focuses on design, manufacturing, testing, qualification, and certification aspects for successful implementation of AM technologies.

Course Objective

• Learn why and how to set up an AM operation
• Learn about current trends, emerging methods, and future improvements in materials, processes, and product qualification
• Learn how to build cost models and estimate the time and cost of producing a part by AM processes
• Cite the array of materials available for each process and representative properties of the materials
• Understand the methodology and principles of design for AM
• Limitations of each process, defects, surface finish, microstructure, and dimensional control
• Understand AM application in replacement, legacy parts, and new unitized part design
• Obtain information on ASTM standards and certification and how it’s application to your AM activities
• Learn the testing, qualification and certification requirements and protocols for implementing of AM technologies.
