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

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”

Seminar 3D Design Software, crucial for engineers & designers, 21 October, 09.00 – 12.30

3D Printing / Additive manufacturing offer many new opportunities for designers and engineers. But these new technologies require other skills and other tools. Designers and engineers have been trained to design/engineer products based upon production technologies which have been around for many many years.

Now with 3d Printing / Additive Manufacturing Products can be designed without the constraints these ‘old’ production technologies have.

This seminar will focus on how engineers & designers will have to change their ‘traditional’ thinking in order to create optimal 3D designs and how 3D software tools can support that.

The following speakers will share their experience with the audience:

  • Moderator: Pieter Hermans, Matchmaker for innovators, Jakajima.
  • ‘Smart Design for Additive Manufacturing and the impact on Engineering Education’ Ricardo Abdoel, Program Manager Mechanical Engineering @ Fontys School of Engineering / Objexlab
  • ‘Advanced Distributed Manufacturing. Taavi Kikas, Co-founder and COO @ 3DPrinterOS
  • ‘The Magic of Customization’ Cecile van der Waal, co-founder @ Printr.
  • ’Sharing your 3D content online with Sketchfab’ Bart Veldhuizen, Community Manager @ Sketchfab
  • Rick Companje, Founder @ Doodle3D
  • ‘How 3D printers can change the design game’ Jesse Kirschner, Founder @ Kirschner
  • ‘Autodesk’s 3D Printing Platform: Sparking innovation.’ Hilde Sevens, Director Business Development @ Spark, Autodesk
  • ‘The 3D content creation splits’, Alexander Hermanns, Director Technology & Innovation @ indicia.nl & Genicap.com.
