Distributed Manufacturing: How Additive Manufacturing Enables Greener and More Resilient Supply Chains
In the recent years, we have seen strong technological advancements in additive manufacturing. Manufacturing companies can now build on the technology to form distributed production networks to make their operations more efficient, more resilient, and greener. We discuss design choices to identify most suitable applications for distributed manufacturing. We address critical issues like IP protection and certification and business viability. The presentation also includes case studies of manufacturing companies starting the journey and service providers in the field

Bringing Additive Manufacture to Work

3D printing can have significant impacts for businesses working across a diverse range of industries through saving development time, tooling production, bespoke parts and complex geometry production. This session will help you to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies and materials, and discover how to exploit the capabilities of AM through additive design principles and economics.

Introducing the Advanced Prototyping Facility based at Aston University and the expert advice and services available to help you to unlock new business opportunities and realise exciting innovations.

Whether you’re new to AM and looking how to get started, or to find out how you could better exploit the advantages and avoid the pitfalls of embedding AM in your processes then this may be a very good use of your precious time.

A Stepwise Development Process for Verifying the Integrity of Additively Manufactured Components
To validate the performance of an additively repaired fan rotor, a structural integrity process uses a stepwise assessment that treats the component as a new design. The two laser DED additive repair processes under assessment are wire fed and blown powder. Validating the performance requires a series of tests and associated models for four steps: laboratory specimens, subcomponents, components, and the entire engine system. Considering the potential and likelihood of certain failure modes, the series of tests at each step vary in the material performance being assessed. Experimentation on laboratory specimens acquire properties such as tensile strength, elongation, low cycle fatigue (LCF), high cycle fatigue (HCF), crack growth rate, and fracture toughness. Subcomponent test articles fabrication occurs by sectioning an operational IBR into individual blades for vibration HCF assessment. Component level testing focuses on LCF and overspeed strength acquired from spin rig testing. The full turbine engine system with the rotor mainly focuses on HCF, which many consider the most critical mode of failure, and the engine performance. The proposed talk aims to walk through the steps, the results, and the implemented decision gates that allowed for validation of the additively repaired component.

Compare and Contrast Metal AM: Liquid Metal Jetting and Powder Bed Fusion
Metal additive manufacturing technologies have evolved and advanced over the last several years. Comparing powder bed fusion (PBF) to ElemX liquid metal jetting
(LMJ) showcases two vastly different approaches to producing a metal part. Here we discuss the variations between PBF and LMJ technologies focusing on the overall
operational functionality of each by simple comparison per common application vetting processes. In many cases, LMJ typically delivers 40% cost savings while also providing quicker cycle time. Safety concerns revolving around PBF have been a major drawback of that specific technology whereas LMJ provides a much safer work environment. The results of this competitive evaluation suggest that LMJ advantages outweigh several PBF benefits in a variety of applications.

The Industry Future with Micro Additive Manufacturing
What is Micro Additive Manufacturing? Who uses it and will it require special design rules? 3D printing has changed manufacturing, and Micro-AM is propelling this growth.
Now, with new boundaries for parts complexity, details and features – This is where our Next-Generation technology delivers. We are changing the way things are made. If you are a product designer or an engineer, chances are you'll need to make a custom micro part at some point.
The ever-growing need for precise micro-parts is restricted by current technological limitations. Now, new technologies enables sub-micron accuracy and surface finish combined with a set or precision materials marks a new age in digital mass manufacturing.  So, whether you manufacture molds, inject parts for your customers or develop your own product in-house, getting the perfect part fast is a pivotal step forward.
