June 12 – 16: Manufacturing Science & Engineering Conference 2023
Starting tomorrow, June 12th, and running through Friday the 16th, the Manufacturing Science & Engineering Conference (MSEC) 2023 will be held at Rutgers University College of Engineering in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Sponsored by the Manufacturing Engineering Division (MED) of ASME, MSEC has been co-located with NAMRI/SME’s North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC) since 2011. Together, the two represent North America’s largest advanced manufacturing research conference. Plus, during MSEC 2023, the fourth Women in Advanced Manufacturing Forum (WIAM) will be held to promote DEI in advanced manufacturing, and showcase successful career paths. The first WIAM panel on the 13th welcomes female leaders in additive manufacturing and will focus on advances in the industry.
“MSEC is the foremost annual forum for the scholarly exchange of advanced manufacturing research knowledge. It is intended to disseminate the most recent developments in manufacturing research through technical presentations, poster sessions, and panel sessions.”

June 13 – 14: Additive Manufacturing for Defense, Aerospace & Space 2023
From June 13-14, the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) is holding its Additive Manufacturing for Defense, Aerospace and Space 2023 summit in Orlando, Florida, which will enable knowledge sharing and collaboration with stakeholders in government agencies, the U.S. military, prime contractors, cybersecurity professionals, top space companies, tier 1 and 2 manufacturers, AM industry vendors, and more. Attendees will receive an update on the U.S. domestic additive market and its role in boosting aerospace, defense, and space supply chains, as well as hear about the latest opportunities and applications for AM in these industries, like hypersonic and space craft, and learn how best to protect their projects and products from cyberattacks.
“Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is quickly becoming a staple component of advanced manufacturing capability across the aerospace, space and defense industrial base. By 2028, it is set to be valued at over $13 Billion in the USA alone. Considerations for speed, lighter weights and lower costs are all paramount to the defense and aerospace sectors, and we will take a closer look at current and future applications to be adopted.”

June 13: Large-Scale Applications for MELD
Also on June 13th, but at 11:30 am EST, join MELD Manufacturing for a webinar on “Large Scale Applications for the MELD Process.” According to the website, MELD is a solid-state process, which means that materials don’t reach the melting temperature, resulting in parts with full density and low residual stresses, but much lower energy requirements than fusion-based manufacturing process. Plus, the MELD process is able to print large metal parts at a very large scale, because the method isn’t restricted to expensive vacuum systems or small powder beds.
“Since MELD is open atmosphere, it does not need to be contained like many similar technologies. Melt-based processes either have a container to hold metal powder or operate in a chamber that prevents oxygen from getting in while the laser is running. Either way, these containers automatically limit you in the size part you can build. MELD doesn’t need a powderbed or a chamber. Without these constraints, MELD can make parts as big as you want.”
