ADDITIVE WORLD 'INDUSTRIAL 3D PRINTING CONFERENCE' 20-21 MARCH, 2019

Interest in Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing for a broad range of industrial applications is growing rapidly. The advantages such as light weight designs, optimized thermal performance, integration of parts and customization inspire a growing number of designers and engineers to use the freedom this technology has to offer. By creating an international platform where knowledge is shared, industry insights are given and international trends explained we can accelerate the learning curve and stimulate each other to bring this innovative technology to a mature level. Since 2013 the Additive World Conference has been bringing renown AM experts from around the world together to discuss and share their knowledge, vision and practical experiences on industrial 3D printing. 

On March 20-21 we are organising already the 7th edition of our annual Additive World Conference in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. 

Please see below the full programme of the 7th edition of the Additive World Conference. If you have any questions, please contact I.Schatorjé: i.schatorje@additiveindustries.com.

Breaking through the AM business case barrier with software simulations and automations by Manuel Michiels, Materialise

Abstract: Over the last decade, the additive manufacturing industry has further matured from applications which are mainly focused on prototyping, to an industry where a small early majority is able to create meaningful applications to print end-parts. Today, we can clearly see how the machines live up to their quality expectations and hence enable an even broader adoption of additive manufacturing – except: due to the high production costs, the business case to apply AM on a mass scale is often not viable. In first instance, this presentation gives a breakdown costing model of the main cost drivers of the Metal AM printing process. By examining these drivers we see that, next to integration in manufacturing workflows, build crash prevention, inspection and simulation driven tools like automated support generation are key for the future maturation of our industry. We will be discussing on how simulation has allowed us to find defects into parts leading to less production cycles, we will be discussing our ongoing progress in machine inspection where we find on the fly errors within the powder bed and take action to continue the build successfully and lastly we will be discussing that simulation can be a useful tool to automate the support generation process. This all leads to large efficiency gains and cost reduction.

Additive Manufacturing at SMS group – Providing most advanced plant technology for the production of high-grade metal powders

Abstract: The SMS group is a group of global players in plant construction and mechanical engineering for the steel and nonferrous metals processing industry with over 14,000 employees in more than 50 global locations. The objective is to provide integrated high-end turn-key solutions for our customers also in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM). Therefore, SMS is targeting to become a full liner by taking all major processing steps of 3D printing into account, including powder atomization, design and 3D printing. To gain detailed operator know-how and production expertise to develop and produce different AM powders a full scale powder atomization plant for the production of high-grade metal powders has been built. While using a laser based powder bed fusion printer a fully equipped laboratory guarantees high qualities. The main goal is to analyze and develop the different influencing factors during atomization and further powder processing and the correlating properties during the further processing steps. The complete competence  approach of SMS group ensures in depth know-how of all major processing steps of additive manufacturing and brings the best value to customers. Melting and refining of metals and alloys is taken place under vacuum or inert gas atmosphere to realize highest cleanness of the powder. The atomizing process with argon or nitrogen, using the close-coupled principal, guarantees defined grain sizes and distribution of metal powders. An anti-satellite system is used for the required excellent spherical particles shapes which guarantee good flow properties during the 3D printing process. The complete powder handling is guaranteed  under inert gas atmosphere until it’s packed. Customers of the new plant concept from SMS are enabled to become the leading supplier of the AM industry by combining a high utilization grade of metal powder and the right particle size and shape for additive manufacturing at highest quality.

Integrated manufacturing solutions for Industrial Additive Production

 

Abstract: This presentation will focus on the fact that additive manufacturing (AM) is now at a stage of maturity where it can be routinely considered as part of a new manufacturing process. Metal AM systems in particular are being used more and more to enhance products by providing greater geometric complexity, lightweight solutions, customisation and shorter process chains. It is important to note that most AM technology needs to locate alongside other processes to ensure that accuracy, finish, assembly, packaging, etc. are taken into account. Comprehensive understanding of a company's existing products and processes is necessary in order to understand how AM can be implemented to enhance their products and prepare them for the future. This talk will discuss how the Inst. for Production Technologies in Aachen and the Fraunhofer Project Centre at the Univ. of Twente are working together to deal with the future needs of local manufacturers.

Challenges in Certification and Qualification of AM Parts

Abstract: The use of additive manufacturing (AM) for industrial applications has a lot of potential to enable improved product performance and manufacturing efficiency. Metal additive manufacturing (AM) technologies are divided in to two main categories known as Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED). In recent years, PBF has demonstrated its potential for high value, low volume and niche industrial applications. It is capable of producing complex shapes and innovative designs, which cannot be manufactured by conventional manufacturing processes. Even though the wide range of industrial sectors have appreciated the importance and adoption of these processes, it is taking longer to industrialise them for final production due to some of the challenges listed below, Robust AM Process Simulation to aid in distortion prediction and correction, Real-time Monitoring and closed-loop feedback to reduce defects, Integration of AM process into the existing production workflow, Certification and Qualification of AM components, Quality Control and Assurance documentation. National Centre for Additive Manufacturing hosted at MTC is continuously working on and committed to address these challenges to accelerate the industrialisation of AM processes for the end applications.

Optimization Production Time Additive Manufacturing

Abstract: The concentration of performance in motorsports and particularly in Formula 1 is extremely high. Splits of seconds can make the difference between a winner and a loser. Our team is working 24/7, using the latest technologies combined with state-of-the-art materials. Only with this effort, we’re able to be competitive and push the boundaries in all directions. One key for the success in this extremely fast industry is Metal Additive Manufacturing. In the Windtunnel as well as on the race track, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team relies on this technology. The competitive constraints in Formula 1 require consistent reduction of production time and only a minimum time from the idea to the use on racetracks all over the world. An important part of the lead time is of course the printing process. To optimize also this period, we develop specific parameters, customized to the application. The production time for our Windtunnel parts could be reduced by more than 50% already!
