What can go wrong in additive manufacturing and how to tackle these challenges? This is the topic of a webinar by A6K | Advanced Engineering Center, in cooperation with Sirris. Expect a deep dive into operational and quality issues in industrial AM processes for metals (laser powder bed fusion, electron beam melting and laser cladding), followed by mitigation solutions.

The supply of metal 3D printing is growing strongly. Machines, materials, software, design and finishing... for each technology there are specific possibilities and challenges. Are you still with us? The new Learning Network 'Metal Additive Manufacturing' brings you knowledge and insights, provided by experts, peers and experience experts. Take part in the online information session on 6 July with no obligation!

The draft ISO/ASTM CD 52935_ 'Additive manufacturing of metals - Qualification principles - Qualification of coordinators for metallic parts production' has changed from CD status ('Committee Draft' - the first draft of the standard development committee) to DIS ('Draft International Standard' - draft for enquiry, subject to public input).

Sirris has acquired a new portable X-ray diffraction stress measurement system within the framework of the FEDER IAWATHA project, subsidised by the European Union and Wallonia. The system is unique in Belgium and provides a very powerful tool to measure the quality of all types of parts - cast, forged, machined, etc. - and processes, such as welding, 3D printing, shot peening or heat treatment. Its ability to characterise local stress is key to improve processing conditions.

In two webinars on 17 November 2020, Sirris and Granutools will give you new insight in powder handling for AM. We will go deeper into the use of compaction curves to detect a drift linked to contamination of aluminium powder by humidity.

On 21 October, speakers from Voestalpine and Optimus3D will talk about additive manufacturing of moulds. Classical manufacturing of such moulds involves processes such as milling, grinding and polishing. All of these processes consume a significant amount of time and cost. Such cost can be accepted for large volumes of replications, but it becomes critical for lower production volumes that need to be delivered quickly.

Additve Talks is another approach to delivering 3D printing and AM resources. This day brings together additive manufacturing players and experts from vertical industries so that they can exchange on various topics. Sirris too will make a contribution on costs and considerations for investing in an AM system.

Sirris can 3D print TPU by SLS, creating different hardness zones, either by concentrating on their internal structure or on sintering parameters.

Quality assurance in additive manufacturing involves strict control of the raw material and its monitoring throughout the production process.
