Chair: Moataz Attallah, Universtity of Birmingham
Metal Additive Manufacturing has advanced significantly in terms of process capability, throughput and quality assurance. Higher power laser sources and advanced scanning hardware and software together with material optimisation have resulted in greater uptake of the application in a wide range of markets.
Fine metal powder or solid wire is fused by laser (and non-laser) technologies to form solid objects which can achieve high accuracy and repeatability with minimal excess weight or material and maximum mechanical properties – enabling new geometric solutions, many inspired by natural forms.
Presenters will cover recent developments in process control, imaging, modeling and material production as well as current advances in design for additive applications, making this workshop of interest to anyone with an interest in manufacturing, research or use of additive manufacturing.
Delegates will be able to tour the Additive Manufacturing facilities at the university after the workshop.
Free places are available for SMEs. If you’re an SME based in the Midlands, AILU has partnered with AMTECAA to provide free tickets to this event. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about AMTECAA’s five fully funded technical feasibility projects supporting SMEs to access equipment and expertise to optimise or develop new products and processes. These include feasibility studies using some of the most advanced laser metal 3D printing processes, such as laser powder bed fusion, direct laser deposition, and metal binder jetting.
