AM State of the Art + Lab Experience 18 April

Over the last 20 years Additive Manufacturing of metals, such as Powder Bed Laser Fusion (PBLF) has gained increasing attention from a largely diversified group of research institutes and industrial end-users. Enabling factors for this development are the ability to exploit increased complexity over conventional manufacturing methods while diminishing the need for expensive tooling. The extended possibilities in freedom of design, however, render expertise in the design for Additive Manufactured parts indispensable. A solid design influences both, part quality and manufacturing costs and thus governs economic viability of this manufacturing technology.

What will you learn in this course?

On completion of the course, you have a deep insight into the production surrounding of AM. A hands-on training with leading software solutions for data preparation is offered, covering the complete process chain from converting a generated STL file input to the sliced supported machine data file. In addition, starting and depacking of a metal AM process is offered to learn about the complete workflow of AM processes.

For whom is the Additive Manufacturing course meant?

The course is mainly directed at designers, manufacturers, product engineers and project leaders who design products or parts.

Course level

University of applied sciences / higher education (HBO)
The Certificate of attendance of Course 1 is obligatory to join the course.

Duration

2 days AM state of the art + 3 days lab experience, from 9.00 AM – 4.30 PM, once a week

Certificate of attendance

After completing the course you will receive a certificate of attendance

Course material

An extensive English syllabus with images and brief texts. Because the field is still very much in development, the course material will be updated continually to the latest state of technical affairs. The course will be given in English.

Practical session during the course

This course is organized in cooperation with Aconity3D and Xilloc. The first day of the course will take place at Mikrocentrum in Eindhoven. Day two will take place at Xilloc in Geelen. Day three will take place at Aconity3D in the laboratory of the Fraunhofer Research Institute in Aachen. This day will consist of an interactive program.
