Additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to offer materials engineers and metallurgists the freedom to control microstructure and materials properties in ways that were previously seen as being “impossible”.
To enable this requires an extremely high degree of control over the process. To achieve this needs advances in machine control and sensor technologies, in the application of modelling and machine learning in understanding process planning and, also its direct control.
Researchers at CAM2 and MAPP have been deeply involved in the development of new methods and strategies and their application to the control of the AM processes and components manufactured by AM.
This joint workshop will focus on this research and the opportunities that the digitalisation of the AM process offers and the continuing research challenges that it presents.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
- Quality Assurance and Sensors for AM – including thermal, hyperspectral, audio
- AI/ML and physically-based modelling for AM
- Ground Truth in AM processes
- Digital qualification of processes and materials
Registration will be available from September.
