5:00 pm - 5:30 pm IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL NETWORKING AND SIDEBAR MEETINGS

Designing for AM requires a different mind-set. Designers need to know material limitations not just manufacturing limitations. Moreover, there is little point in producing a part with AM that could be machined. What tools can help this process, what training can be given to designers? From software packages to training courses there is a lot that can be done to generally improve the AM design approach.

 

Discussion will include:

  • Enabling software that helps designers understand material limitations
  • Tools for validating designs; modelling and simulation that account for material and design
  • Workforce considerations; training, qualification and certification
  • What do you think is the most important part of the Designing for AM process, feedstock, product design, manufacturing, post-processing, or certification?
  • Which areas of Designing for AM do you feel require the most improvement or development, such as software, tools, standards, or training?
  • What challenges do you see for Designing for AM as we move towards technologies such as functional graded materials, metallic foams, and multi-materials structures?

6:15 pm - 6:45 pm IMMERSIVE VIRTUAL NETWORKING AND SIDEBAR MEETINGS

Materials and processes used to produce critical components for defence, space and aerospace applications must be formally qualified. While qualification procedures vary between applications or industries, the goal of qualification is to collect sufficient data to demonstrate that a part will function as expected. Part qualification for AM relies on methodologies that can be hard to scale. The process is expensive and often duplicated by competitors across the industry.

 

Discussion will include:

  • What makes AM Materials & Processes challenging to qualify?
  • How can industry look to collaborate and work together to reduce some of the costs and timescales?
  • How can Standardisation help to support Qualifying Materials & Processes?
  • What challenges do you see when transferring from an established & qualified process on one AM machine, to another platform – i.e. new machine models, multi-laser systems, etc.
  • How can we manage the vast amounts of data that the qualification of materials creates?
  • What do you define as ‘Process Qualification for AM’, and how can it help?
