  Additive Manufacturing: Implications on Research and Manufacturing  
(Seminar/Conference)

ICTAS Black Swan Seminar Series:

"Additive Manufacturing: Implications on Research and Manufacturing"

With recent developments in the synthesis of end-use products from multiple materials (including metals, polymers, ceramics, biomaterials, etc.), additive manufacturing (AM) has the potential to become a transformative technology in innovation-based manufacturing. Agencies such as the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology have robust programs in AM. Contrary to traditional manufacturing technologies that create artifacts through the subtraction of material from a workpiece, AM techniques create parts through the successive creation of an artifact's cross-sectional layers. Each AM technology has a unique principal solution (from using an electron beam to selectively melt titanium powder, to precisely extruding a molten thermoplastic filament) for the machines' common primary function: to form layers by the selective placement (or forming) of solid material. As a result of its additive approach, AM processes are capable of building complex geometries that cannot be fabricated by any other means; it thus provides opportunities to design and fabricate geometries that are tailored for specific functionality. Furthermore, the technology affords the opportunity to create customized products on-demand with significant labor and materials savings. This Black Swan will provide an overview of AM and its implications on advanced engineering design and in innovation-based manufacturing. Attendees will be challenged to consider new applications and engage with the speakers in a dialogue about the disruptive nature of AM in a variety of research contexts.
