About the Course
Among the different AM technologies, metal powder bed fusion process is the most important technology that is considered for AM serial production. This webinar helps the attendees to gain a comprehensive understanding about the metal PBF characteristics, key parameters, factors influencing the process, and describes the ISO/ASTM standards associated with PBF processes.
The attendee will learn at a high level how L-PBF Technology works as well as some the engineering and cultural barriers to implementing additive manufacturing technology
- After completing this webinar the attendees will achieve the following
- ·Understand the seven types of additive manufacturing and how L-PBF technology compares
- ·Understand some of the barriers to the implementation of additive manufacturing
- ·Understand what their organizations have to do to gain engineering and regulatory acceptance of the technology on their products.
Who Should Attend:
Manufacturing Engineers, Research Engineers, AM Process Engineers, AM Operators
