EPMA Metal Additive Manufacturing seminar heads to Sweden
April 5, 2019
The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has published the full programme for its two-day seminar focusing on metal Additive Manufacturing. The seminar is hosted by the Centre for Additive Manufacturing – Metal (CAM2) at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, and will take place May 13-15, 2019.
The seminar will begin with an overview of powder-based metal AM technologies, followed by presentations focusing on Electron Beam Melting (EBM), Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF), binder jetting and powder Directed Energy Deposition (DED). There will be discussion on standardisation in metal AM as well as methods for the characterisation of metal powders. Day one will conclude with a visit to the Centre for Additive Manufacturing followed by networking opportunities at the evening dinner.
During the second day, delegates will discover methods for powder recycling, how to ensure quality in LPBF, secondary HIP operations and heat treatment, as well as surface optimisation and improving mechanical performance. Further topics covered include the processing of gasses in AM, the value of simulation in machine learning, and open sauce AM for materials R&D.
There will also be additional visits organised to the Arcam Academy and Digital Metal’s facility.
The deadline for registration to the seminar is Wednesday 10 April, 2019.
