ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR TOOLING AND PRODUCTION OF END USE PARTS
September 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
As additive manufacturing systems continue to improve in speed and accuracy, companies are increasingly using additive manufacturing (AM) as a means of final part production.
The development of new additive manufacturing (AM) materials is also proceeding very quickly. DSM Somos, HP, Henckel/Loctite and others are aggressively developing additive manufacturing materials that will be used in low- and high-volume production of consumer products, cars and even aircraft.
This workshop will be an update about the latest additive manufacturing (AM) materials and technologies that are being used to prototype, test and manufacture end-use production parts faster and at lower cost.
Topics will include:
– What are the newest materials that are available now?
– How are they being used?
– What materials are in development and expected to be available soon?
We will discuss how companies are improving product performance and lowering production costs by designing for additive manufacturing instead of injection molding.
We will also focus on how AM is being used in manufacturing and production for:
– Injection mold tooling
– CMM fixtures
– Assembly fixtures
– Process tooling
– Robotic tooling
– Bending fixtures
– End effectors
– Inspection fixtures
– Bending fixtures
– Soft jaws
– Blast masking tools
– Drill guides
– Part marking tools
Case studies will include:
– Fast production of high precision metal castings using 3D printed casting patterns
– How Gulfstream uses 3D printing in their manufacturing process
– How Capital Stamping uses 3D printing to produce fixtures
– Injection mold tooling for plastic part production
You will see many examples of manufacturing applications involving additive manufacturing, including:
– Composite metal/AM (EMI shielded parts, conductive parts)
– Secondary tooling from AM (Urethane, Epoxy, Silicone)
– Ceramic composite SLA (SOMOS Perform, offering a heat deflection temperature of 500 degrees F
– Markforged fiber/Nylon composite tooling
Representatives from InterPRO and DSM Somos will be on hand to answer questions.
