The DGM seminar "Advanced Additive Manufacturing" was held for the first time at the DMRC from 7.05-8.05 with the participation of numerous representatives of the industry. With 27 participants in the first seminar, the expectations were exceeded by far, which was also due to the exciting lecture program. The experts of the University of Paderborn were supported by the companies Heraeus, SLM-Solution, TÜV-Süd Product Services GmbH, Simufact, Baker Hughes and the startup AMendate. The complete lecture program can be found here: www.dgm.de/veranstaltungen/fortbildungen/additive-fertigung-fuer-fortgeschrittene/
The advanced training takes place annually and is aimed primarily at metal and polymer scientists, engineers, design engineers and technicians, who are already have an insight into the various additive manufacturing processes. The three most important additive manufacturing processes are presented within the framework of the advanced training: for plastics "fused deposition modeling" and "selective laser sintering" and for metals "selective laser beam melting".
The topics addressed range from powder qualification, the performance of parameter studies and application examples, and covers the entire process chain of additive production of polymers and metals. Based on the knowledge that the participants have already acquired in industrial practice or through introductory training, detailed and practical information on all relevant process steps (e.g. topology optimization) are provided and explained in detail.
