Direct Metal Additive Manufacturing

October 23, 2018 @ 6:00 PM ET



Direct metal additive manufacturing (AM) is of great interest to the aerospace, medical implant, and other industries. It offers the promise of decreased manufacturing cost, substantial reductions in the amount of material used to build a component, and the ability to fabricate structures not realizable by conventional manufacturing methods.

This introduction to AM includes a brief history of AM processing and a discussion of the technical fundamentals of current AM processes with a focus on direct metal additive manufacturing. An overview of the state of the art in metals AM covering a wide variety of alloys and applications will also be addressed.
