As the TTU Golden Eagle Additively Innovative Lecture Series heads into its final Spring 2021 lecture on Thursday, April 22nd, participants have been learning from some of the world’s most experienced AM educators and instructors. Next week will be a deep dive into 3D printing with metal with Dr. Antti Järvenpää.
Anyone can attend this free lecture, from anywhere via the Zoom video platform: tntech.zoom.us/j/432789883 at 11AM Central Time on Thursday, April 22.
Antti Järvenpää, Ph.D., Research Director of Future Manufacturing Technologies, University of Oulu, Finland will present on the Fatigue Behavior of Additively Manufactured Steel. In this talk, Dr. Järvenpää shares his research into the quality of printed metal (it is similar in strength to wrought metals) as well as the reliability of it. He has some excellent photos that show the surface roughness of various metal AM methods (Binder Jetting, Joule Printing, Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (E-PBF), Powder DED -Directed Energy Deposition-, among others). Plus, some “3D printed eye candy” with exquisite finished prints (just one below) for attendees to see.
If you have wanted an understanding of metal materials, how to post-treat metal prints to overcome defects, and to explore how metal additive manufacturing is continuing to evolve and improve as a manufacturing method, this talk is one to put on your calendar.
You can read more about Dr. Järvenpää’s work at this University page: Future Manufacturing Technologies (FMT) research group or the Nordic Community for Fast Steel Heat Treatments which is dedicated to creating a better world by decreasing the environmental load caused by steel manufacturing, fabrication and use of steel-based applications.
Details on the first three lectures are linked below:
- Dr. Gaffar Gailani from New York City College of Technology, shared insights into the Challenges and Opportunities of Additive Manufacturing in the Medical Device Industry. He explored materials advances as well as how to optimize AM for medical devices.
- Dr. Jennifer Loy from Deakin University in Australia: 3D Printing Product Development Decisions with Dr. Jennifer Loy.
- Design Trends For Additive Manufacturing From Dr. Patrick Pradel at the Design for Digital Fabrication Research Group (D4DF) at the Loughborough Design School in the UK.
