NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Technology Demonstration on Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) Additive Manufacturing Processes
09/14/2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT
Join us for a virtual presentation on the use and results of generative design and resulting demonstration parts printed by the University of Maine Advanced Manufacturing Center/Center for Additive Manufacturing of Metals.
Valued at a $7.3-billion worldwide market value in 2017, additive manufacturing (AM) is disrupting multiple markets by enabling engineers to rapidly manufacture parts having substantial geometric freedom. Unfortunately, this geometric freedom is often realized with materials having insufficient properties (e.g., stiffness, strength, melting temperature) for production requirements. Addressing this problem, the rapidly-growing additive manufacturing of metals (AMM) sector now includes multiple processes, including Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Bound Metal Deposition (BMD).
This session will be recorded and made available on-demand.
By the conclusion of the presentation, attendees will:
• Understand the advantages and disadvantages of PBF and BMD AMM processes
• Recognize how AMM process and design advantages can add value within supply chains while increasing part functionality
• Reflect upon their current portfolios to determine candidate AMM applications
