NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Bound Metal Deposition (BMD) Additive Manufacturing Processes

May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Online Event

This introductory workshop is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for small manufacturing enterprises in the defense supply chain. For more information, please visit ccat.us/NERDIC. Valued at a $7.3-billion worldwide market value in 2017, additive manufacturing (AM) is disrupting multiple markets by enabling engineers to rapidly manufacture parts having substantial geometric freedom.  Unfortunately, this geometric freedom is often realized with materials having insufficient properties (e.g., stiffness, strength, melting temperature) for production requirements.  Addressing this problem, the rapidly-growing…
