Event Description

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is increasing in popularity; the market for products and services is forecast to grow at around 30% per year. This is helping to foster new commercial opportunities, enhance awareness and build UK capability and capacity in AM.

The UK has the potential to be one of the leaders in AM development as new materials and technology are brought into scope, and the importance of measurement is crucial in the manufacture of additive manufactured parts.

However, a challenge exists regarding the metrology surrounding AM processes, all the way from powder metallurgy, through AM machine verification and part monitoring to final geometrical inspection and non-destructive testing.

Join this metrology sector meeting to discuss some of the challenges, including talks by people already involved in measuring AM parts and in resolving some of these issues. There will be the opportunity for a round table discussion to share best practice, highlight concerns and look for support to resolve issues.

Speakers:

Dr Michael Wilson (3M Buckley Innovation Centre): Variation from the design file and between builds during additive manufacture measured and visualised by metrology X-Ray computerised tomography (XCT)

Evangelos Chatzivagiannis (MTC): Product verification challenges for components manufactured by additive manufacturing

Further info:

There will be the opportunity for a tour of the University of Huddersfield's 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, including 3D printing capabilities, a Dimensional XCT and a variety of other associated equipment.

Refreshments will be provided at the meeting.

After the meeting (5:30 - 7:30pm), NPL's Manufacturer Measurement Network will be holding an 'Additive Manufacturing' event - for more information and to register, please click here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/69709668495
