Morning Keynote with Terry Wohlers:

The Future of 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing and 3D printing—terms that are used interchangeably—are moving quickly in many directions. The level of interest and activity is at an all-time high as researchers, investors, and the management at some of the largest corporations try to predict where it is headed. Many believe it is the next Big Thing. National governments are developing “ecosystems” that include research and development, “maker spaces” for hands-on learning, discovery, and invention, and the commercialization of new products and services. The overall goal is to advance methods of product development, create high-paying jobs, and boost economies.

New technologies and materials:

Opportunities in powder based 3D printing

Triggered by the availability of highly affordable personal 3D Printers, the 3D printing industry is enjoying wide public admiration in a similar way to the attention internet based applications attracted in the late nineties. However, the great promise of 3D printing technologies is less justified in home-based applications than in the area of industrial production. The powder binding segment within 3D printing offers outstanding advantages: no other additive manufacturing process offers comparable productivity combined with large build envelopes. In addition, a recently developed and unique machine concept allows continuous operation and inline production capabilities. The presentation provides an overview of current system concepts as well as possible applications, and gives an insight into future developments in this space.

New technologies and materials:

New additive process for efficient low volume production with standard granulates

In order to produce single parts and small series efficiently, ARBURG developed the freeformer and a new process for industrial additive manufacturing of plastic parts. With the patent-registered plastic free-forming of ARBURG, standard pellets are fused, as in injection moulding. The liquid melt produces small drops, which then build up in layers to fully functional parts – this happens directly from the 3D-CAD-data, and completely without an in-mould assembly.

Dr. Oliver Keßling, Head of Plastic Freeforming, ARBURG

Room: ECC D

Professional service providers’ approach to processes and customer value:

Surface refinement of RP-parts

RP-Parts are built up in layers whereby the parts obtain a stepped surface. This is formed weak or strong depending on parts complexity. These surfaces can be optimised by different possibilities, in order to achieve an optical surface similar to serial parts afterwards. Therefore you can use subsequent technologies as for example varnishing, evaporating, coating etc.

Development of 3D printing – opportunities and issues for intellectual property

The topic of 3D printing and its new applications, especially for private use, is highly discussed in the press. However, discussions about protection of intellectual property of newly developed or copied objects are missing. For companies, but also self-employed designers and artists, the protection of intellectual property is important in order to protect hand-made products. Traditional ways to protect these include the design law, copyright, patent law and trademark law. In this session, you will discover if these are suitable for 3D printing.

Technological developments for industrial and private users:

Colored plastic laser sintering parts, a must in the mega-trend of 3D printing

Generative plastic laser sintering is the technology which is closest to small series production. A great number of solutions in finishing exist, but a real complement is the coloring of parts produced by laser sintering, the e-coloring. Examples will show that colored parts produced with laser sintering become indispensable in the mega trend of 3D printing and became integral part of e-manufacturing. This session is made for developers, designers, department heads, CEOs of all sectors from producers of small part series to artists who want to use generative manufacturing in their production.

Morning Keynote with Claus Emmelmann:

Light engineering – additive manufacturing of metal products

Geometric degrees of freedom of additive manufacturing allow us to produce very efficient structures and to integrate additional functionalities in parts, using new constructive methods. These features already allow us today to manufacture metal parts for industrial applications economically. An increase in productivity and quality of parts makes a future extension of additive manufacturing in sectors such as aerospace and automotive possible.

Morning Keynote with Jahn T. Sehrt:

Basics for the successful implementation of AM – status and outlook

The 3D Printing Technology, partly used as synonym for additive manufacturing and often mentioned in media, is of great interest to the general public. This positive trend is reflected in the increasing numbers of sold installations and sales, and is reinforced by the media. But what can one expect of an additive manufactured part, where are the opportunities and threats of the technologies and what should you bear in mind when manufacturing parts? This session aims to focus on these and other questions, to show today’s trends and to demonstrate with existing examples the state-of-the-art and future perspectives.

Future track:

A 3D Printer for everyone

We live in exciting times. We’ll look back on this time in history and remember it as the start of a revolution – a revolution that will provide a 3D printer for everyone.  Hype? I don’t think so. Until now, most of the consumer 3D printing market has been comprised of Makers, technically savvy early adopters who have gone online, purchased hobbyist 3D printers and tinkered with the technology in large part for the joy of it. A new group, Users, are less technically skilled than makers, less driven to master every 3D aspect of 3D printing, but just as interested in the technology’s ability to make things they need. They constitute the bulk of the future market for 3D printers in every home – provided we in the industry solve a few challenges.

Design for additive manufacturing: from the idea to the design

Additive Manufacturing provides great benefits if it is used in terms of direct manufacturing – for end-use part production. To generate this use, different aspects need to be considered on the way from the idea to the design. The first important aspect is the function. Additive manufacturing can create functions and function-integrations that cannot be obtained with established manufacturing processes. This will be exemplarily described with a damping function, which only additive manufacturing can create in this way. Another important aspect is the manufacturability of parts, which is mainly influenced by the part design. Therefore, design rules were developed, which support a suitable design for additive manufacturing. The proceeding and the results will be exemplarily shown for the thickness of a wall. Finally, also part tolerances are an important aspect that influences the part’s ability to fulfill its function and consequently influences the use of a part. Results from pre-tests in combination with research needs will be shown.

3D printing future markets and disruptions

3D printing is a highly discussed topic in mass media and more and more sectors are debating it. Two totally contradictory expectations in the future development of the technology have come up: mega-revolution and micro-niche. The truth will vary –as so often – between these two extremes. And above all, there won’t be one truth. Z_punkt assumes that 3D printing will not only permeate to a different degree, but also in a very different way in different sectors. Diverse models of disruption can be identified, showing exciting future applications in different sectors.

Applied Research track:

Powder bed stabilization for powder-based additive manufacturing

An important issue of powder-based additive manufacturing still consists in the fact that the powder bed does not support the parts sufficiently during the building process. Furthermore, the thermal conductivity of the powder bed is insufficient in laser-based procedures, which can conduct to thermal stress in the parts. Support structures are therefore used in addition to the manufactured part, in order to connect it with the working platform. They also allow targeted heat dissipation in laser-based procedures. However, setting up support structures is time and material consuming and taking off structures after the actual additive manufacturing takes another process step. A new technology could eliminate these issues. An exhauster and a working platform designed as filter apply a vacuum to the powder bed. This way, a drop of pressure is built in the powder bed and air and process gas is sucked through the porous powder bed. This airstream exerts additional force on each powder particle, acting towards the gas flow and fixing and stabilising the particle.

Supporting decision making in design for additive manufacturing processes with structural elements

The current standardisation of different materials gives information only about their mechanical properties. It lacks, however, information about the achievable geometric features, tolerances and limits. The purpose of this study is to illustrate a possibility to create instruments in order to validate decisions made in the design process. In addition it will help to strengthen confidence in additive technology and refute reservations.

Customizable Items Manufacturing, the future of 3D Printing

Getting involved in 3D printing is not as simple as just popping to your local electronics retailer, picking up a 3D printer and starting to create your own things. Many people cannot design in 2D, let alone 3D, and the parts they will require many different materials. This is where 33-year-old former software engineer Clément Moreau steps in. Clément will present on the theme of Customizable Items Manufacturing, the future of 3D Printing.
