AlphaSTAR to present AM control techniques and microstructures at ICAM

October 26, 2021

AlphaSTAR Corporation, Irvine, California, USA, will be exhibiting at the upcoming ASTM International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (ICAM) 2021), to be held November 1–5 in Anaheim, California.

As AM is increasingly adopted by various industries, the company has stated its commitment to disseminating its validated Integrated Computational Material Engineering (ICME) technologies, which AlphaSTAR believes are essential for accelerating the timeline of qualification and certification of AM parts in performance critical applications.

To showcase the company’s tools for AM process simulation, Dr Rashid Miraj, AlphaSTAR’s Director of Technical Operations, will present the following talks:

Sensory Real-Time In-Situ Monitoring Toolset for Additive Manufactured Parts

This presentation highlights recent research that AlphaSTAR conducted in collaboration with Imperial College of London, UK, on the integration of big data processing with intelligent data discovery to help minimise trial & terror in AM by establishing feed forward control (FFC) and feedback control (FBC) methodologies.

Tailored Steel Microstructure with Increased Strength and Elongation by Additive Manufacturing

This presentation focuses on work funded by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) in collaboration with General Electric Global Research Center (GE GRC), utilising AlphaSTAR’s ICME developed technology to support grain boundary engineering for AM.

Additionally, on the first day of the conference, Dr Miraj will participate in a panel discussion on ‘In-Situ Monitoring and Process Control in AM: Challenges and Opportunities’, which will include thought leadership on challenges in process control and in-situ monitoring of AM, validation of data, integration & modelling, qualification & certification, standardisation and more.
