Anton Paar USA invites you to a presentation on solutions for the 3D printing industry, with a focus on how to solve common problems experienced during key stages of production. During this presentation, we will focus on three major stages of the 3D printing process: pre-production; manufacturing; and post-processing.
Every process begins with raw materials. And raw materials require a lot of care, from material verification, to feedstock consistency, to the flow, instability, and agglomeration of particles and powders. This webinar will discuss the solutions for verifying materials and ensuring their consistency as your raw materials are prepared to create final products.
It wouldn't be called 3D printing without the actual printing stage. As with raw materials, this essential step can be optimized once common issues are addressed. Sagging and flowing issues during printing, as well as flaws and defects that lead to poor printing results can be solved with a greater understanding of rheological properties and their direct impact on this stage of the process.
Finally, these raw materials eventually end up as finished products. Once they do, there must be processes in place to discover and correct defects and gaps in printed media, while also confirming structural and refinement properties that can determine the overall product quality. Even if every step leading up to finished products is flawless, there must be final checks to make sure fracturing or fatiguing does not take place.
After the presentation, there will also be a chance for you to ask questions regarding the presented material or about your own 3D printing processes or issues.
- Learn about the causes of common problems such as powder instability, feedstock variation, product defects and fractures, and more
- Discover the measuring principles behind solutions for these problems, and how certain instruments can eliminate multiple issues occurring at different points of the process
- Further your knowledge of the tools that can help make your 3D printing processes more cost-efficient, time-effective, and defect-free
