The European Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has released a new batch of course literature from its ‘Additive Manufacturing with Steel Feedstock’ seminar, organised under the EU-funded SAM project (Sector Skills Strategy in Additive Manufacture).

The released media will provide a thorough introduction to materials, with a focus on different types of steel feedstocks for AM production.

The media will cover the following topics:

  • The effects of micro-alloying, relating grain refinement to mechanical properties
  • AM conditions for a certain part taking into account the material ability for AM
  • Carbon equivalent (CE), t 8/5 concept and preheating temperature
  • Hardenability and maximum cooling rate
  • Types of heat treatments requirements for a certain part, inferring the heat treatment conditions (depending of the shape and size of the part, the application and the code).
