Supporting the Supply Chain with 3D Printing

Also on May 10th, at 2 pm EST, Formlabs is sponsoring a webinar, hosted by Machine Design, on “How 3D Printing Supports Supply Chains.” Mike Baker, the Global Content Lead at Formlabs, will host an in-depth roundtable discussion with Formlabs COO Jason Fullmer; Rich Mokuolu, CEO at Partsimony; and Genevieve Lee, Manufacturing Engineer at Fast Radius. They will talk about supply chain pressures during Industry 4.0 and other related topics, and answer questions at the end.

“In the midst of Industry 4.0, supply chain pressures have caused manufacturers to struggle to meet increasing demand and changing manufacturing processes.

“3D printing, machine learning and additive manufacturing can help address those supply chain woes. These solutions allow companies to bring the prototyping and production process largely in-house. It also allows for manufacturers to design, print, and deploy replacement tooling for production lines or end-use parts, easing the pressure on traditional supply chain methods.”

America Makes Holding TRX Webinar

In its latest TRX Webinar, America Makes will host “Multi-Metal 3D Printing by Meltio,” with Yash Bandari, PhD, Additive Business Development Manager at Meltio founding partner AddiTec, presenting. The webinar, at 2 pm EST on May 11th, will focus on Meltio’s laser metal deposition (LMD) process, which uses wire or powder as the feedstock, though wire is typically preferred. AddiTec has several years worth of experience and background in LMD technology, and Bandari will cover Meltio’s LMD printing in terms of application, materials applied, technology, and motion control.

“This process can be used for both fabrication and repair of metal components with enhanced material properties using single wire, dual wire, or wire and powder combination. Different materials like Titanium alloys, Nickel alloys, Steels etc. can be applied in this process. This process is gaining attention in various sectors that can produce metal components with low Buy-To-Fly (B:F) ratios at high deposition rates, low costs, and with reductions in lead times. The potential advantages of this LMD process for production of structures in aerospace, automobile, space, oil and gas, and jewelry sector will also be discussed.”

ASTM on PBF-LB/M Processing

On Thursday, May 12th, at 10 am EST, ASTM International is holding a webinar on “Multi-Scanner PBF-LB/M Processing.” Taught by Niklas Praetzsch, M.Sc. (m), R&D Project Manager for PBF-LB/M Process & Systems Engineering at Fraunhofer ILT, the webinar will focus on using multi-scanner PBF-LB/M systems and their benefits, challenges, and constraints, such as avoiding interaction between process by-products and laser radiation, scanfield calibration and alignment, planning a workload when using multiple scanners, and more.

“The webinar addresses the benefits and challenges of using multi-scanner PBF-LB/M systems on a laboratory scale and guidance on transferring the results to commercial multi-scanner PBF-LB/M machines. Depending on the arrangement of the scanners, parallel processing results in a number of constraints that must be taken into account when using multi-scanner PBF-LB/M machines.”

AM & Generative Design with 3D Systems & ASME

At 2 pm EST on the 12th, 3D Systems is holding a webinar, hosted by ASME, on “Generative Design and Additive Manufacturing – Using Artificial Intelligence and Robots to Build Lightweight Structures for NASA’s EXCITE Mission.” Ryan McClelland, Research Engineer with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, is the presenter of the session, and attendees will learn about the use of AM and generative design for the EXCITE mission, including the design, analysis, creation, and testing prototype hardware.

“Digital engineering technologies are transforming classical engineering tasks such as design, analysis, and fabrication for space-flight structures. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and cloud computing, generative design enables a paradigm shift in the design process, allowing the engineer to define design objectives and requirements while AI explores the design space to generate optimized designs that meet those parameters. Digital manufacturing enables these complex and lightweight designs to be robotically manufactured directly from 3D models. This includes both additive manufacturing, such as laser powder bed fusion (LPBF), and subtractive techniques such as automated milling.”

You can register for the webinar here.

3D Printed Musical Instruments

Finally, “Synthesis: An Exploration of 3D-Printed Musical Instruments (Opening)” will close the week out, showcasing 3D printed musical instruments at the Depot Artspace, in partnership with Xero, in Devonport, Auckland, New Zealand. The interactive exhibition is already open, but the official opening, with refreshments and a live 3D printed band including drums and guitars, will be on Friday, May 13th, at 5 pm NZST (1 am EST). Professor Olaf Diegel from The University of Auckland’s Creative Design and Additive Manufacturing Lab will introduce the event, and share his insights on the intersection between 3D printing and art. The exhibition is hosted as part of Techweek and New Zealand Music Month.

“This exhibition demonstrates the intersection between art and 3D-printed technology, whilst also demonstrating the creative opportunities of additive manufacturing technology.

“The 3D-printed instruments will be on display from 7-28 May 2022, where visitors of all ages can test-drive various instruments and leave with their very own 3D-printed object using our onsite 3D-printer!”
