MAPP, the EPSRC Future Manufacturing Hub in Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes, is pleased to announce the complete line up of internationally renowned keynote speakers for this year’s Alloys for Additive Manufacturing Symposium (AAMS).

The international symposium will be held over two days on 3rd-4th September 2018 at Inox, the University of Sheffield. It continues the series of Europe-wide Additive Manufacturing (AM) workshops and symposiums and follows a successful event in 2017, hosted by EMPA in Switzerland.

This world-class event covers additive manufacturing technologies which include a metallic phase and is divided into 5 themes over the two days:

  • Phase transformations in AM-produced alloys
  • Alloy design
  • Advances in processing
  • Structural control by design
  • Novel concepts in alloy metamaterials

Our confirmed eminent international keynote speakers, from industry and academia, include:

  • Dr Hector Basoalto, University of Birmingham - 'A stochastic multiscale modelling approach to additive manufacturing of nickel-based superalloys'
  • Dr Phil Carroll, LPW Technology - 'Whatever happened to the lost generation…? Of alloys that is!'
  • Professor Eduard Hryha, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg - 'Material- and powder solutions for powder-based additive manufacturing'
  • Dr Eric Jägle, Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, Germany - 'Impact of the process gas atmosphere in Laser Additive Manufacturing – desired and undesired effects'
  • Professor Roger Reed, University of Oxford - 'New Nickel-based Superalloys for AM by Alloys-By-Design Approach'
  • Dr Christopher Spadaccini, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory - 'Additive Manufacturing and Architected Materials: New Process Development and Materials'
  • Dr Blanka Szost, Additive Manufacturing Competence Centre (EU), Oerlikon AM, Germany - 'AM Alloy Design at Oerlikon - modelling and its validation'

In addition to keynote presentations, a further 20 presentations from international contributors will provide and promote further discussion on leading-edge research into the potential of new materials and processes in AM.

MAPP Director and RAEng Chair, Professor Iain Todd, University of Sheffield, said:  

“AAMS2018 is shaping up to provide a world-class lineup and a defining set of talks.

In two days the symposium will show that we’ve  gone from being a field that is interpretative to one that is predictive - this may be the AAMS that proclaims it as THE conference on alloys for AM”

The Sheffield symposium follows the success of the MAPP First International Conference in January which attracted over 180 delegates and brought together powder experts to discuss the advanced techniques now being investigated in advanced powder processes.

Registration is open until 10th August via the University of Sheffield Online Store and limited spaces are available. We also have limited options remaining for sponsorship.

Sponsors for the AAMS2018 event include :

Zeiss -  Gold Sponsor

Thermocalc - Silver Sponsor

Inovar -  Drinks Reception Sponsor
