A one-day overview of the metallurgical requirements for high quality 3D printing with metals, this course provides an improved understanding of the specialised requirements of metals for additive manufacturing (AM) and the challenges of meeting them.
Knowledge gained from the course will aid understanding of which components might be suitable for AM (and which are not) and will enhance discussions between customers and suppliers of AM products.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at those who work in engineering, production and design and who are considering manufacturing or supplying metal components made by AM. This includes buyers and salespersons. It will also be a useful introduction to the subject for new starters and graduate engineers.
How will I benefit?
- Understand the design opportunities (and limitations) offered by various AM technologies
- Appreciate how metal powders are produced and the complex quality control requirements
- Improved knowledge of post-processing required to establish required metal properties
- Overviews of metal powders & applications currently in production and development
