Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing, is a technology that has grown by double digits for the last 20 years and has garnered international interest in the last few years.
The primary goal of the course is to provide sufficient information about AM for participants to evaluate where in their working activities the technology might make sense to employ. Upon completion of this course, the participants will have a basic knowledge of all seven types of AM processes, the types of materials that are used for each, how to design for AM applications, how to evaluate the economic value of using AM in a manufacturing application and how the technology arose. The presenters will discuss the midterm and long-term future of the technology and where it is headed.
The course is designed for:
- Engineeers, Technical personnel and managers working in AM or contemplating moving ino the field;
- Students, Researchers and academics who want to AM have a basis for assessing AM and its utility in their business;
- Company decision makers who would like to have a basis for assessing AM and its utility in their business;
- Any employee who wants to get up to speed with AM and to move past the hype into the reality of what AM has done and can do.
