Fundamental principles of additive manufacturing
This course is intended for engineers, technicians and managers.
It benefits companies wishing to acquire knowledge on additive manufacturing technologies in order to have specific examples of use.
At the end of the course, learners will be able to identify the benefits and uses of additive manufacturing in an industrial context (aeronautics, subcontracting, general mechanics, etc.).
Duration of course: 1 day (6 hours)
The course consists of a series of lessons, practical work and questions and answers sessions.
Additive manufacturing consists of making parts of various materials by adding matter rather than by removing shavings. It is set to revolutionize the design of certain mechanical parts and subsections, which will be easier to produce, cheaper for raw materials and possible to produce on demand at their place of use. This new technology, which is rapidly spreading through the aerospace field, is beneficial to the entire supply chain and more specifically to the design, manufacture and maintenance industries.
We discuss the basics of additive manufacturing to give you detailed knowledge of different technologies and materials.
Subsequently, we use specific examples to demonstrate the possible applications in different sectors of industry and business. Customer examples will also be given to help us provide you with a concrete return on your investment.
