Industrializing AM and merging the worlds of additive manufacturing and machining – Presented by Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions

Stijn Brilman

Stijn Brilman, cards plm solutions, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

Getting rid of the bin of broken dreams! How do we deliver high quality and accurate metal products? Unfortunately, people often forget that AM is more than the printer and controlling the printing process. In order to realize the full potential of additive manufacturing, companies must employ a robust process that integrates design, engineering, manufacturing planning and production operations.

In this presentation we provide the insights of an end-to-end workflow where AM and machining are combined.

How to boost Additive Manufacturing (AM) for serial production? Opportunities to improve AM processes and Machines – Presented by Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani

Abdellatif Bey-Temsamani, Flanders Make, will speak at 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference on April 16, during the 3D Printing Event at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in The Netherlands.

With the industrial transition to use Additive Manufacturing (AM) for Series Production, AM machine builders, SW/HW providers and end-users are confronted with different challenges to increase productivity, decrease lead time and produce parts with high quality. The current practice is however far from reaching the desired productivity and quality that are translated to large scrap rate in current production. This presentation will highlight examples for opportunities, based on industrial projects conducted by Flanders Make, to improve the AM process and machines leading to reduce lead time, increase productivity and reduce the scrap rate.

TU/e researcher develops mechanistic model to keep 3D printed concrete walls stable

3D printed concrete walls

A professor of Applied Mechanics at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands has developed a model for determining the dimensions and printing speeds needed to keep 3D printed concrete walls stable.

Construction 3D printing is an exciting area of additive manufacturing, but 3D printing with concrete-type materials doesn’t come without its problems. This is basically because 3D printed concrete is asked to do a lot more work than it is used to: while normal concrete deposited in formwork can harden over several weeks, 3D printed concrete needs to carry the burden of the next layer almost immediately after its deposition.

Software Automation: The Future of Additive Manufacturing – Presented by Victoria Akinsowon, RP Platform, at the 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. Read the interview

As additive manufacturing is increasingly integrated into wider manufacturing systems, companies must find better ways to integrate what have traditionally been disparate and disconnected processes. As we shift further towards Industry 4.0, software automation will play a crucial role in connecting these systems, leading to more streamlined AM workflows, and ultimately transforming current business models and supply chains.

“‘Start with the end in mind’ – Design for Supply Chain – an integral approach to develop smart products” – Presented by Marc Schrijvers, Philips Industry Consulting

Freedom of design is perhaps the most important benefit of 3D printing or additive manufacturing. Where traditional supply chains evolve to supply networks the link between initial design and final supply gets more complex. Design for Supply Chain offers a solution to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing. This structured step-by-step methodology addresses supply chain aspects in the early stage of design. It is a proven tool enabling effective decision making and maximizing smart customization opportunities.

“Generative design for additive manufacturing” – Presented by Mathijs de Schipper, TNO

Designing smart structures and utilizing the full potential of additive manufacturing requires a new design approach. Using algorithms complex structures can be generated with for example varying thickness resulting a range of material hardness. I will show you my approach towards designing an insole with multiple material properties using Grasshopper.

Working with new materials sometimes requires more control over your printing process. Instead of slicing a 3D object resulting in a file for your printer you can also directly design the toolpath for your printer. For 3D foodprinting we use this approach to create complex textured food. Using a generative design approach you can directly go from design to printing.
