Printing multi-hardness parts with SLS – Presented by Maxime Legrand, Sirris

Maxime Legrand, Sirris, will speak at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

New materials are emerging in SLS 3D printing. How to make the best of it? In this presentation, we will consider TPU printing with SLS and how it is possible to change its mechanical properties through parameters optimization and lattice structures.

“Topological optimization: findings from practice” – Presented by Simon Vermeir, Sirris

Additive manufacturing is more and more used to produce functional end-parts.

However, success is no guarantee because during the production-technology-switch to AM, the design is not always adapted. However this is crucial to gain from the AM-benefits. A new approach of product design made its entry.

Topological optimization is an inspiring way to achieve lightweight parts which still fulfill all the mechanical requirements. Findings from practice are explained.

Stijn Lambrechts, Sirris, Presents: “Guide to optimize print parameters for an LBM process”

If we want additive manufacturing to become more cost effective, one key enabler will be to open up the market for material supply to AM. For quality and process stability reasons, many suppliers of AM machines try to organize the material supply for their machines by sourcing the materials and distributing them to the machine users.

For powder bed AM machines however, supply of suited powders is broadly available on the market at more cost effective prices. Continue reading “Stijn Lambrechts, Sirris, Presents: “Guide to optimize print parameters for an LBM process””
