Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes Workshop

Date: Sunday, March 3, 2024
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Location: Hyatt Regency Orlando

Additive manufacturing (AM) has become popular over the last several years, although seminal developments took place 25–30 years ago. This half-day workshop examines key metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes and their industrial applications. We will begin with an overview of the AM technology landscape, then discuss fusion-based AM processes, covering both wire and powder-based methods, including powder bed fusion (PBF) and directed energy deposition (DED). We will then end with details on emerging solid-state processes, including metal binder jetting, bound powder extrusion, cold spray AM, and more. Process physics, as well as the capabilities and limitations of each process, will be discussed. Attendees will gain an understanding of established and emerging metal AM processes and their transformative implications for industry.

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for people in the materials and manufacturing community already familiar with AM processes and interested in learning more about cutting-edge technologies and related process physics. Academics and researchers will also benefit from discussions about current challenges to the full adoption of AM.

Learning objectives

Participants will become familiar with current AM processes and future directions.
