The Penn State Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition (CIMP-3D) is now accepting registrations for its three-day Additive Manufacturing practicum aimed at those in industry and academia, including Penn State students, postdoctoral scholars and faculty.

The workshop is scheduled to take place July 30 – August 1, 2024 at the CIMP-3D Additive Manufacturing Demonstration Facility. Each morning, participants will have the opportunity to learn best practices from researchers and members of the Additive Manufacturing industry. The afternoon will include demonstrations and hands-on metal Additive Manufacturing fabrication practicums using state-of-the-art technologies relevant for industrial applications, such as Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) and Directed Energy Deposition.

Participants will have the chance to become familiar with all aspects of engineered AM components, including metallic material systems, design and optimisation tools, process modelling, simulation and sensing, and computer tomography inspection and qualification techniques for metal Additive Manufacturing. Additionally, participants will take part in two industry-led case studies presented by a leading aerospace company and a leading energy company.

“In addition to being a chance to learn the latest technical skills in Additive Manufacturing, this workshop will be an excellent networking and collaboration opportunity for both industry participants and AM researchers,” said Guha Manogharan, the Emmert H Bashore Faculty Development Professor in Mechanical Engineering and co-director of CIMP-3D. “Participants will learn from the best in the business. They’ll walk away with a knowledge base of best practices in AM and cutting-edge research methods that will set them apart from their industry or research and development peers.”
