Additive manufacturing (AM) is a significant growth area for many industries. Please join us for a live technical seminar presented by Chris Bohlmann on Thursday, November 14th at 9:00 am. The event will cover different aspects of additive manufacturing to help you stay at the forefront of this rapidly advancing process.

What is additive manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing, popularly known as 3D printing, is a relatively new manufacturing process that offers many distinct advantages over conventional manufacturing processes.

Parts are produced in layers that are fused to form a solid three-dimensional part. The process is efficient, minimizes material usage, allows shapes optimization for performance, and enables the production of complex particles. Manufacturers can apply additive manufacturing to a wide range of materials, including polymers, metals, composites, and ceramics.

What will I learn?

The seminar will focus on aerospace and automotive markets and products, with an emphasis on metals. The talk will review some of the materials, methods, processes, and part processing challenges. It will also briefly touch on how companies and standards bodies are looking at how companies are assuring their raw materials meet the required structure and properties.
