Nirali Surati, DSM, will speak at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

This is a two-part presentation in partnership with AMT.

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.

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

Andrea Gasperini

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.

Experience from HIP and Heat treatment of Printed Inconnel 718 and Ti6Al4 – Presented by Mats Sjöstedt, Quintus Technologies AB, at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Parts that are printed and have a critical application are always requested to be treated in a Hot Isostatic Press (HIP) to remove defects to achieve a robust and stable production quality. Many printed alloys are also requested to be Heat-Treated to receive a desired microstructure for best static properties.

Quintus Technologies AB have conducted several studies were the HIP and HT has been combined in one HIP-furnace to reduce cost, lead time and improve control of the treatment. In this Presentation we will share some of the experience received from studies conducted on Inconel 718 and Ti6Al4 .

Stereolithography 3D Printing with biobased resins – Presented by Geraldine Schnelting, Green PAC, at 3D Printing Materials Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

The accessibility of cost-competitive renewable materials and their application in additive manufacturing is essential for an efficient biobased economy. Current photopolymer resins on the commercial market for stereolithografie 3D printing are fossil-based and expensive, while the availability of low-cost renewable resins is needed to facilitate waste-free and local manufacturing of sustainable 3D products.

Recently, photopolymer resins based on renewable (meth)acrylates were developed and successfully applied in stereolithography 3D printing. Continue reading “Stereolithography 3D Printing with biobased resins – Presented by Geraldine Schnelting, Green PAC”

3D Printing with new materials like silicones, epoxy resins and polyurethanes – Presented by Simon Kasböck, ViscoTec

3D Printing with new materials like silicones, epoxy resins and polyurethanes – Presented by Simon Kasböck, ViscoTec Pumpen- u. Dosiertechnik GmbH, at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

While the additive manufacturing of metals and thermoplastics has already found its way into industrial applications, the 3D printing of fluids and pastes is still at the beginning of being used professionally. With this technology many new materials are available for the additive manufacturing process. These materials are for example silicones, epoxy resins and polyurethanes. Due to crosslinking of material between the layers at a molecular level, the mechanical properties in Z-direction are almost exactly the same as in the x-y plane.

Multi-Material FDM 3D Printing – Presented by Dolores Hilhorst, TU Delft

Dolores Hilhorst

Multi-Material FDM 3D Printing – Presented by Dolores Hilhorst, PhD Candidate, TU Delft at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands.

Various Additive Manufacturing systems are capable of fabricating objects that consist of multiple materials. Among these systems are multi-extruder FDM machines, which can repeatedly switch between different filaments within a single build.  In this presentation, opportunities and challenges related to multi-material FDM 3D printing are briefly addressed: What possibilities does multi-material FDM offer in terms of material combinations and heterogeneous structures? For which applications would multi-material FDM be interesting? And how can designers model multi-material objects that are to be 3D printed?

Selective powder deposition: bringing multi-material capability to industrial additive manufacturing – Presented by Kevin Eckes, Aerosint SA

Selective powder deposition: bringing multi-material capability to industrial additive manufacturing – Presented by Kevin Eckes, Aerosint SA at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. Read the interview

Selective laser sintering (SLS) and HP’s multi-jet fusion (MJF) are currently the most industry-focused additive manufacturing techniques. These powder bed fusion techniques are capable of small series production of parts with complex, overhanging, geometries. Still, they are limited by their ability to process a single material at once. Truly forward-thinking manufacturing should be focused on developing ways to fabricate complex, multi-material mechanical assemblies at once. In this talk I will present Aerosint’s selective powder deposition technology and its potential to enable industrial scale multi-material 3D printing.
