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.

Case study: fashion and additive manufacturing

GO, RAGS, GO! American Football vs. 3D Printing Technology Yes, that’s right: 3D printing technology meets American Football. Modern fashion and laser sintering – Anna Wilhelmi makes it possible! Anna Wilhelmi, fashion designer from Berlin, uses 3D printing technology in a new way in order to realise her thesis. In her thesis, she presents sporty chic in 20 different looks: leather skirts, hot pants, knitted trousers under coats – each item is made of high quality materials such as alpaca wool, leather and a whiff of the future. American Football, the colours and equipment are the main topic of this project. But Anna Wilhelmi wanted more: accessories and breastplates were made using the selective laser sintering technology. This makes them light as plastic, but hard as the hell. The collection is a wild remix of masculine roughness combined with a delicate feminine look. This case study will show the potential of 3D printing technology for individual manufacturing of accessories, used in fashion and orthopedics, personal protection and body make-up. See the entire workflow from draft to the final presentation.

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.

Afternoon Keynote with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Franz-Josef Villmer

The Industrial revolution due to additive manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing has been described as a disruptive innovation and a significant part of the next industrial revolution. Media attention is currently tremendous. A distinction has to be made between and professional additive manufacturing which is mostly on enterprise level and consumer 3D printing. Professional additive manufacturing is more or less an established part of the range of manufacturing technologies and enables revolutionary manufacturing performances like new levels of object complexity and lot size independent production cost. To utilize all opportunities of AM, it should be used for manufacturing new parts instead of mimicking conventional manufacturing technologies. Consumer 3D printing on the other hand creates a new digital movement and will probably democratize the idea to product processes from idea generation and design to production as well as supply chains. This provides unprecedented business opportunities. Furthermore, 3D bio-printing appears on the horizon.

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.

Future applications and markets:

Key success factors for the competitiveness of additive manufacturing

In some few industries, such as the aerospace industry or medical engineering, know-how about additive manufacturing (AM) of metal structures is well advanced and processes are the point of maturity that they have nearly or completely reached the required level for mass production. Manufacturers of AM machines have reacted to the changing customer situation by providing more powerful machines that focus not on the manufacturing of prototypes, but on mass production. The majority of the manufacturing industry is about to notice the technical and economic potential of AM due to high media exposure and discussion of first application options. This session will analyse which success factors are relevant from a manufacturing industry point of view in order to establish AM further in the market for metal structures. The analysis is based on the shortened value-added chain for AM and discusses relevant factors using practical examples.

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.
