Powder Bed Based Laser Melting Advanced Training

©Aconity 3D

Additive Manufacturing (AM) gains rising interest as production technology for complex parts in small lot sizes. In this respect, especially the technology of powder bed based laser melting, also known as Selective Laser Melting (SLM), is increasingly applied for producing functional metal parts. At this, SLM may be applied as pacemaker technology for prompt leverage of high potential ideas and thus, reducing time to market for commercialization.

However, in order to benefit from the added value this production technology brings along, in depth knowledge of the Additive ecosystem is needed. The seminar gives an in depths view on the applied steps for generating a metal AM part, offering hands-on training on SLM equipment. The seminar will be held by experts from Aconity3D a manufacturer for laboratory SLM equipment with long-term experience in Selective Laser Melting.

A seminar for:

Professionals and managers of technology oriented companies, particularly in the field of research and development, plant management, technology management and corporate development.
For this seminar no advanced knowledge of Additive Manufacturing technologies is necessary.
