Metal Additive Manufacturing Tutorial

Service Detail from Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF)

A Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) Tutorial will be offered during the conference AMPM2019: Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Sheraton Grand on Sunday, June 23, 2019.

Conducted by metal AM industry experts Todd A. Palmer, The Pennsylvania State University, and Joseph T. Strauss, FAPMI, HJE Company, Inc., the tutorial will provide a basis for determining process options, uses, properties, applications, and opportunities for cost-effective metal additive manufacturing (AM). Individuals who will benefit from the tutorial include engineers, business managers, procurement managers, component designers, and technicians.

This course is a must for consumers of metal AM components and organizations that are exploring the opportunities associated with developing their own metal AM facilities.

Included in the tutorial:

  • Overview of metal AM processes (fusion and solid state)
  • Powder feedstock characteristics
  • Fusion-based metal AM processes
    • Beam-material interactions
    • Rapid solidification mechanisms
  • Non-fusion metal AM Processes:
    • Sintering
    • Solid-state transformations
  • Post-processing, properties and performance

Registrants will receive a certificate of completion.

Attendees are not required to register for AMPM2019 to attend the tutorial; however, registration for the event can be found within the conference registration portal.
