ADDITIVE WORLD 'INDUSTRIAL 3D PRINTING CONFERENCE' APRIL 1-2, 2020

The growing Corona virus is limiting more and more people to travel and participate in international events. In order to facilitate everyone that would like to attend the 8th edition of the Additive World Conference to do so, we have decided to move the conference to the digital space. You therefore don’t have to book a flight, nor hotel, just stay at your desk or at home in your lazy chair and sit back and relax to view the presentations online. This way you don’t have to miss the conference while still adhering to the company policies and regulations and stay safe!

Because of the virtual nature of this 8th Additive World Conference, we will be able to make it free. As you know, it is not a commercial set-up and our normal entrance fee is only to cover the location and catering cost and since in a virtual conference you bring your own desk, chair and drinks, we can host it for free. We still ask you to sign-up so we can register the participants and send you the digital conference details later.

The topics to discuss will cover the complete additive manufacturing value chain like design for additive manufacturing, materials, equipment, post processing and the best business cases. The speakers mentioned below in the programme will speak at our digital conference.

Let's accelerate our learning curve and stimulate each other to bring this innovative technology to a mature level!

Taking AM seriously: the move from prototyping to manufacturing by Prof. Ian Gibson, Fraunhofer Project Centre at the University of Twente

Abstract: In his talk, Ian will start by describing the Fraunhofer Project Center (FPC) at the University of Twente. This is the first Dutch Fraunhofer and focuses on advanced manufacturing related applications research. Additive Manufacturing is a key element of this, where the aim is to enable manufacturing industry to make an effective transition towards direct manufacturing using AM. Ian will go on to describe the approach FPC is taking, with particular emphasis on integration of technologies and why FPC is partnering with Additive Industries.

Using modelling and thermal sensing to increase the success of first time builds by Zach Francis, Ansys

Abstract: Additive manufacturing is a unique technology that allows manufacturers to produce parts that are highly efficient and optimized for their purpose. However, the inconsistencies in the AM process lead to a need for a large amount of experimental trial and error to qualify a part. This makes an already expensive process even more costly and can be prohibitive to the widespread adoption of additive manufacturing. To expedite the design, development and qualification process of an AM part, manufacturers can turn to simulation and process monitoring. In this work, we compare thermal history capabilities from ANSYS additive manufacturing simulation solutions with thermal imaging results from Sigma Labs using the NIST Additive Manufacturing Test Artifact as a basis.

speaker1

Zack Francis, Phd has been an additive manufacturing software developer for Ansys for the past three years where he works to create tools that tools that expedite the additive manufacturing design and development process. He has also worked closely with collaborators to validate the AM software tools and demonstrate how they can be used to get the most out of the Additive manufacturing process. Prior to joining Ansys Zack received his PhD in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University where his research focused on process development.

Benchmarking powderbed fusion technology in the current metal AM market environment by Matthian Schmidt-Lehr, Ampower

Abstract: In 2019, Ampower published their first market report, highlighting the leading role of Powderbed fusion technology in the metal Additive Manufacturing industry. According to Ampower research, in 2018, the global metal Additive Manufacturing market size is valued at EUR 1,51 billion including system, material and service sales. At the end of 2018 almost 8,000 metal Additive Manufacturing machines were installed. The ranking is led by Powder Bed Fusion with a total market share ratio of 90 %. In 2019, Ampower and Additive Industries conducted a comprehensive productivity benchmarking for today’s powder bed fusion technologies. The MetalFAB1 turned out to be the most competitive system in this benchmark by tackling a major pain point of the industry and successfully reducing cost per part to a minimum.

Accelerate design cycles for Additive Manufacturing through integrated software solutions by Sualp Ozel, Sr. Product Manager Additive Manufacturing Autodesk

Abstract: Design and industrialization of parts for AM is not a straightforward task. Different personas are involved, and often multiple feedback loops and design iterations are required. Having strong analysis tools, such as process simulation is important for eliminating trial and error from the design process. But in most cases the person creating the design will be different than the one running the simulation etc. Furthermore, both will use different software tools to complete the task. This will lead to communication and interface problems. Therefore, having all the tools required for design, print preparations, process simulation and tool pathing in one integrated platform will allow for much more efficient collaboration and quicker time to market for additive products. By having a platform like that it is possible to create associative automated workflows that will allow the shift to a new design paradigm.

HIP and high pressure heat treatment for additive manufacturing by James Shipley, Quintus Technologies

Abstract: Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) has been used to remove shrinkage porosity and internal defects in cast products for many years, predominantly to improve mechanical properties and fatigue resistance. Recently, there is increasing focus on the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process for demanding applications where internal defects and porosity are a concern. Post processing using HIP is now being used to shorten process times using a combination of HIP, Solution Heat Treatment (SHT) and Aging to automate and make processes leaner, leading to cost reductions and productivity increases whilst reducing scatter in material properties. This paper will present as broad overview of what is happening in the industry as a whole, with a focus on the key technology changes in modern HIP equipment and the possibilities being offered by HIP.
