Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Components - The Metallurgical Perspective

Webinar Recording

Presented by Julius Bonini, the webinar covered Metal Additive Manufacturing, Various Methods and Equipment, E Beam vs. Laser Melting Methods, Powder Bed vs Deposition Methods & Available Metal Systems.

While Additive Manufacturing is growing in popularity, challenges with this revolutionary processing method continue:  quality and performance must be ensured, production grade materials must be sourced and productivity must be increased. 

This webinar covered:

  • Introduction to Metal Additive Manufacturing:
    • Various Methods and Equipment
    • E Beam vs. Laser Melting Methods
    • Powder Bed vs Deposition Methods
    • Available Metal Systems.
       
  • Metallurgical Aspects of the Three Stages of AM Processing
    • Pre-Processing: Powder Issues
    • Processing: Issues with Powder Fusion
    • Post-Processing: Heat Treatment, Surface Treatments and HIPing
       
  • Typical Component Applications.
    • Advantages and Disadvantages
    • Comparison of Microstructures to Conventional Fabrication Methods
    • General Metallurgical Problems Seen.
       
  • Available Standards
    • Currently Limited but Growing
    • ASTM & ISO
    • Validation & Testing.
  • Future Trends
    • Continuing Development & Research.

This webinar recording will be of interest to manufacturers who:

  • are looking to increase productivity of their AM process
  • are experiencing problems with AM
  • want to optimize processing and performance
  • want to develop the next generation of products using AM
  • want to implement AM into their manufacturing processes.
