Event description
Join Professor Pedro Rivera and members of the Materials Science Institute and GISMO to learn about new alloys in additive manufacturing.

About this Event

Are your products and components used in harsh environments and high reliability or safety-critical applications? Would you like to improve the properties and performance of the materials they use?

Additive manufacturing offers a major opportunity for manufacturing of components and tooling for aerospace, automotive, medical implants, oil & gas, rail, marine, heavy engineering, nuclear and space technology applications.

The process and feedstocks that it uses allow the creation and use of new alloys that can deliver enhanced properties not achievable from conventional manufacturing processes.

These alloys can improve the fatigue life, hardness, corrosion- and temperature-resistance of 3D-printed parts, adding value to products and extending the scope of applications for them.

Professor Pedro Rivera, Royal Academy of Engineering Chair at the Materials Science Institute in Lancaster University is a leading exponent of the use of new alloys and he will discuss the opportunities they present and the design and manufacturing issues involved.

Who is it for?

These breakfast events are for businesses and material researchers from across the globe.We are especially pleased to invite Cheshire and Warrington SMEs to join our seminars and to gain insight into our research in additive manufacturing and the latest research challenges in this field, and to find out more about how the GISMO project can help you in this area.

We welcome manufacturers of products, components and tooling used in harsh environments and high reliability or safety-critical applications, e.g. aerospace, medical implants, oil & gas, rail, marine, heavy engineering, nuclear and space technology.

Why attend?

  • Discover how properties of materials can be improved by additive manufacturing
  • Understand how to develop additively-manufactured prototypes using new alloys
  • Learn from case studies involving materials for armour and aerospace
  • Find out how you can use the experts and specialist facilities at Lancaster University to develop and prove new alloys – all fully-funded


Prof. Pedro Rivera Diaz Del Castillo - Professor of Advanced Manufacturing at Lancaster University and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair
