The European Powder Metallurgy Association (EPMA) has published the full programme for its two-day seminar focusing on metal Additive Manufacturing. The seminar will take place April, 14-15, 2016 in Bremen, Germany and will provide participants with an opportunity to develop their knowledge of the AM processes and applications through a series of lectures and case studies.

The seminar will begin with an introduction by Claus Aumund-Kopp, Fraunhofer Institut IFAM, followed by a technology overview from Frits Feenstra of TNO Science and Industrie. The importance of part design will be discussed by Peter Sander of Airbus Hamburg and the choice of metal powders suited to Additive Manufacturing will be presented by Keith Murray of Sandvik Osprey. A presentation by Materialise’s Volker Schillen will look at software options.

The second day will include a presentation on machine operation by Dr Stéphane Abed of PolyShape, as well as quality control and product testing by Tim Domagala of Materialise. The ever important issue of standards in the AM process will be discussed by Klas Bovie of Sandvik AB.

A number of AM case studies will be presented by Dr Reinhard Schlitt of OHB System AG and a look at how additive design and manufacturing will impact tomorrows products will be given by Robert Vaeth of FIT Production GmbH.

Also included in the programme are tours to the nearby Additive Manufacturing facilities of IFAM, BEGO and Materialise.

The EPMA have reported that space on the course is limited and those interested in attending should register by March 11, 2016.
