The ‘eco system’ approach from materials – printer – to post processing (part one) presented by DSM
The ‘eco system’ approach from materials – printer – to post processing (part two) presented by AMT

The Additive Manufacturing landscape today consists of several moving parts such as materials, machines, software, post processing technologies etc. that all need to work in harmony to ensure a positive experience for users. Varied stakeholders in the industry cater to each of these moving parts forming the ecosystem of additive manufacturing. These seemingly disconnected steps have a broad influence on the additive manufacturing experience and hence its wider adoption. The presentations talk about how DSM and AMT are working on these challenges with a combined eco-system approach.

How to boost Additive Manufacturing (AM) for serial production? Opportunities to improve AM processes and Machines – Presented by Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

With the industrial transition to use Additive Manufacturing (AM) for Series Production, AM machine builders, SW/HW providers and end-users are confronted with different challenges to increase productivity, decrease lead time and produce parts with high quality. The current practice is however far from reaching the desired productivity and quality that are translated to large scrap rate in current production. This presentation will highlight examples for opportunities, based on industrial projects conducted by Flanders Make, to improve the AM process and machines leading to reduce lead time, increase productivity and reduce the scrap rate.

Results of some practical experiments by the surface treatment industry – Presented by Arjan de Bruin, Vereniging ION

Arjan de Bruin, Vereniging ION, will speak at 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

The attention of the industry involved in additive manufacturing for surface treatment seems very small. People are mainly still busy with construction rules, powder compositions and laser technology. The “surface technology” process block is left blank in many presentations. Incorrectly in the opinion of Vereniging ION. After all, if a product is made according to the additive manufacturing method, a state-of-the-art surface treatment is necessary for proper preservation, improvement of material properties or from an aesthetic point of view.

Towards a guideline for quality assured 3D Printed spare parts – Presented by Onno Ponfoort, Berenschot

Onno Ponfoort, Berenschot, will speak at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Many industrial sectors require quality assurance and certification for parts to be used. Additive manufacturing holds the promise to allow customization of the design of parts, to meet case specific demands. But certification of each individual part is a time consuming and costly operation. This is an entrance hurdle for many ‘standards controlled’ industries.

Automated Surface Finishing for 3D-printed metal parts as enabler for serial production – Presented by Wolfgang Hansal, Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces

Wolfgang Hansal, Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces will speak at 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

With the evolution of 3D-printing of metals from the prototyping scale towards a serial production the different steps in the production chain must be fully understood and adjusted to the each other in order to guarantee a constant and reproducible quality of the final products. Among the different process steps, the post-processing of AM metal parts is crucial but nevertheless still an open issue at industrial scale.

Accelerating Additive Manufacturing with process automation and integration – Presented by Harry Kleijnen, Additive Industries

Harry Kleijnen, Additive Industries will speak at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Todays end to end additive manufacturing production processes are characterized by many separated process steps requiring intensive manual labour and complex planning processes.

For series production of parts this way of working will be too costly and is prone to errors jeopardizing overall equipment efficiency. In his presentation Harry Kleijnen will elaborate on Additive Industries vision and solutions for integrated and automated additive manufacturing.

Embedding Unique Functionalities in composites by continuous fiber printing – Presented by Andrea Gasperini, Brightlands Materials Center

Andrea Gasperini, Brightlands Materials Center, will hold his talk at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

The presentation will provide initially an overview over the range of possible sensors (pressure, elongation, flexural) that have been embedded in composites by exploiting the freedom in fiber positioning by FDM. The response of continuous carbon fibers as a function of flexural load will be presented in a more comprehensive fashion.

Opportunities and Chances of Additive Manufacturing for Components and Tools – Presented by Eric Klemp, voestalpine Additive manufacturing Center

Opportunities and Chances of Additive Manufacturing for Components and Tools – Presented by Eric Klemp, voestalpine Additive manufacturing Center, at AM Integrated Factory Conference, on April 17, 2019, during 3D Printing Event in The Netherlands.

Additive Manufacturing offers lot of opportunities, especially for tools and components. There are positive aspects and there are risks as well. AM is only successful, if all elements of the value chain are identified and taken into consideration. Only with recognising the potential, the USPs can be achieved. In this presentation, an approach will be shown by different examples.
