Process chain integration of Additive Manufacturing is fundamental. It takes place on three different levels: the general trade-off between all process chain technologies (pre-processing, AM, post-processing), clamping and referencing of workpieces as import parts for mechanical consistency between different technologies as well as digital consistency, e. g. data formats.
The seminar “AM based process chains” summarizes the statusquo of the integration of AM technologies in process chains and shows where the actual challenges for the industrialization of Additive Manufacturing and what is to do in the next years. It also gives an example to generate process chains meeting the requirements.
Professionals and managers of technology oriented companies,
particularly in the field of research and development, plant management,
technology management and corporate development.
