About the event:

As the first in a unique series of events supported by the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM), practitioners from across the UK’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) sector are invited to share their knowledge and experience. Learn how other AM users are addressing common challenges in application and development. Through a programme of workshops, leading AM users will discuss the practical approaches for the successful and safe industrial implementation of AM. During the event, AM users will be encouraged to openly discuss and share good practice for overcoming barriers which can prevent earlier adoption of AM technology.

Please note this event is for current users of AM technology to learn from and share information with fellow AM practitioners.
For those who are new to AM, we would recommend one of our AM training courses.

The programme of interactive workshops cover the following key areas and will also include practical advice on validation, certification, data management and skills development:

Managing AM feed-stock
Importance of material quality
Material specification and procurement
Material testing
Powder handling/storage/disposal
Health & safety
Facility layout and house keeping
Design for AM
Review of the able software tools
Demonstration of the design for AM process
Case studies showing the benefits and challenges of design for AM
AM process simulation
How AM process simulation can be used to reduce build failures and improve part quality

AM build process
Metal AM – Laser powder bed fusion, electron beam powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition
Polymer AM – vat polymerisation, laser powder bed fusion, jetting and high speed processes
Addressing issues including:
– Part set-up/supports
– Identifying and dealing with difficult geometry & materials
– Common source of build failures
– Part quality issues
– Part finishing & inspection
– Certification and standards
