12:15 pm - 1:00 pm PANEL DISCUSSION: ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING FOR SPACE

Will Dick-Cleland - Additive Manufacturing and Space Lead, Alloyed

Space and space applications can pose a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Key advantages including reducing part count and points of failure, total mass reduction, and control over mass distribution. However, the extreme forces placed on objects going into space, and the high cost of failure necessitate high qualification and certification standards. This is not only expensive but also poses some unique technical challenges in order to replicate parts to consistent high standards.


Discussion will include:

·        The unique opportunities that AM has for space applications

·        Importance of process and material control including powder and environment management

·        Challenges of scalability with qualification and certification methodologies

·        How ICME can help through modelling and simulation

·        How design features can complicate material properties making materials hard to qualify

·        In-process monitoring, qualification and validation from AI to CT-scanning

3:00 pm - 3:45 pm PANEL DISCUSSION: DESIGNING FOR ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

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:

·        How to truly enable design for additive manufacturing

·        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

3:45 pm - 4:30 pm AFTERNOON TEA AND NETWORKING

4:30 pm - 5:00 pm NOVEL MATERIALS AND AM PROCESS CONTROL

Will Dick-Cleland - Additive Manufacturing and Space Lead, Alloyed
