SME’s Additive Manufacturing Seminar Series will stop in Long Beach, CA on September 25, 2019. Co-located with the WESTEC Event, this seminar will focus on how major manufacturers and suppliers have transformed their operations by embracing Additive Manufacturing with a focus on materials used to produce production-ready parts. At the seminar, industry experts will be on hand to discuss how they are implementing the technology and present various case studies with real life examples of how AM is transforming traditional manufacturing. Hear how the materials used in additive manufacturing are ever changing and how metals, polymers and advanced composites are utilized in a variety of additive manufacturing technologies. Learn about processing parameters, design considerations, typical defects you find in metals, aluminum, super alloys and many things in between.
Continental Breakfast 8:00 – 8:30 am
Morning Presentations 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
Metal AM for Aerospace Components This presentation will review laser-based additive manufacturing as an alternative method for producing complex near net-shape parts, review the laser metal deposition process used to build a rocket nozzle demonstrator component for NASA, discuss the enhanced properties that can be achieved with the process, and display a sample rocket nozzle demonstrator component for participants to view and touch.
Melanie Lang, Co-Founder & Managing Director, Formalloy
