Design and Manufacturing Simulation of Additive Manufacturing Components

1-Day Awareness Seminar on Thursday, 28th September

Additive Manufacturing (AM) offers many benefits over traditional manufacturing technique. In particular its deployment in the medical industry for dental and biomedical implants has been vast. The inherent nature of the AM process allows the creation of near perfect reproduction.

The application of the AM in other industries such as Aerospace, Defence and Automotive has already produced spectacular weight savings without compromising component performance. AM technology allows the generation of complex geometries and lattice structures to make lighter and more efficient components, these component design could not be realised using traditional manufacturing techniques.

However, AM is sometime away to being industrialised in these sectors. The weight and performance benefits of components redesigned for AM is proven. To ensure these gains are not eroded it is vital that a simulation process for AM is established to provide the engineer with the tools and design guidelines to maximise the true potential of AM.

This NAFEMS seminar will bring together leading experts in AM to discuss current challenges, latest simulation techniques and how they are being deployed by leading companies. A particular focus on designing for AM, residual stress and component distortion and support structure design.

Why Should You Attend?

  • Learn how industry end users are using AM technology, and how this is being applied to solve challenges.
  • Understand the end-to-end process for AM and how your organisation could benefit from this technology.
  • Network with individuals involved in AM and high value design and manufacturing.

Who should attend?

  • Small, medium and large organisations that utilise engineering design as part of their product to market process.
  • Organisations with an interest in the use of composites,additive manufacturing and the stages involved in developing, designing and manufacturing products.
  • The event is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.


Will be available shortly.
