SME's Additive Manufacturing Materials seminar


SME’s Additive Manufacturing Materials seminar will take place in Knoxville on Thursday, August 9. This seminar will focus on how major companies have transformed their operations by embracing Additive Manufacturing/3D printing. At the event, industry experts from Lockheed Martin, GE Additive, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Ohio State University and others, will be on hand to discuss how they are implementing the technology and present various case studies and novel practices facilitated through additive manufacturing. Hear how the materials used in additive manufacturing are ever changing and how polymers, metals and advanced composites are utilized in a variety of additive manufacturing technologies. Learn about processing parameters, typical defects you find in metals, aluminum, super alloys and many things in between.
