Introduction to Using Metal Additive/3D Printing for New Parts and Critical Repairs
March 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
3D Printing (also called Additive Manufacturing) is a family of seven different technologies. Directed Energy Deposition (DED) is a type of additive used not only to build new parts, but can also be used to make critical repairs, repurpose and do surface enhancement on existing parts. DED can be used to make parts larger than other forms of AM, and you can even mix materials to create functionally graded parts. This seminar will discuss what DED is and examine business case studies of its use.
This is an introductory seminar on the basics of DED and how it can be used in a wide range of industries. It applies to manufacturing engineers and managers exploring the benefits of metal additive manufacturing as a working tool.
Money for Manufacturing is available for eligible CT manufacturers through the Additive Manufacturing Adoption Program (AMAP) directly supporting your adoption of additive technologies into your company. Applications for this selective, $100,000 matching grant will be accepted April 1, 2021 to May 31, 2021 and is funded by the CT Department of Economic and Community Development and administered by CCAT.
