New LPW Technology – Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair Created to Mine, Process and Alloy Data, and to Model Novel Alloys for Optimising the Additive Manufacturing Process

Additive Manufacturing

As this technology is poised to disrupt the established techniques for fabricating metal components so collecting data, and simulating new compositions and microstructures, promises to transform the approach to generating novel high-performance alloys for applications in critical industries.

How 5 Major Automobile Manufacturers Use 3D Printing

3E Rapid Prototyping

They ran simulations as a means of optimizing the design of internal flow passages in the housing, but needed to build a prototype to perform functional testing to validate the new design. Mainly, they use SLM and SLS for the various parts they need to produce.

ADAPT – Upcoming Colorado School of Mines Additive Manufacturing Seminars

Additive Manufacturing

Subject : “ Characterization of laser-powder-bed interactions in selective laser melting “ Selective laser melting (SLM) plays an important role in the field of additive manufacturing, enabling the design of complicated geometries that can produce parts rapidly and efficiently.

LLNL Researchers Outline Physics of Metal 3D Printing

Additive Manufacturing

The powder bed fusion process, also known as selective laser melting (SLM), requires thin layers of a metal powder to be spread across a build area, where they are fused by a laser or electron beam based on a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) model.

Euro PM2015 International Powder Metallurgy Congress & Exhibition-Call for Papers

Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, rapid prototyping or freeform fabrication, is ‘the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies’ such as machining. Simulation and Modelling.
