AM Technologies:

In metal 3D-printing new production technologies are arising beside laser and electron beam powder bed fusion. These technologies don't provide the same material performance and geometrical flexibility but offer significant lower cost and become therefore attractive for high(er) volume applications, e.g. for large structural aero parts or in automotive applications. First components are already used in serial production by aerospace companies. As the build rates and cost for powder bed fusion by laser will not significantly decrease in the near future, we believe that a variety of Additive Manufacturing technologies will exist in parallel addressing individual market niches and market price levels.

Beside the speed of the printing process the overall efficiency along the entire value chain (design, printing and post processing) comes more into focus. Highly integrated software solutions integrating design, product optimization, printing and the post processing (e.g. machining and quality control) are currently introduced into the market.

In parallel the production environment is further industrialized, which is visible in the first "Additive Manufacturing Factories".

Business Models and Value Chains:

The hype round 3D printing based on low cost printers has well arrived in the “Trough of Disillusionment” Many 1st generation FFF printers serve as expensive door stoppers. As a consequence a second generation of FFF printers has been developed including an industrial level support to fulfil the original promises and open up high level applications, still based on the low cost promise of FFF.

The presentation highlights these applications starting from data control models and MockUps via jiggs and fixtures for production and quality assurance to high end applications such as carbon fibre lamination tooling and part production.

Finally, the questions is discussed whether the availability of indutrsial level low cost FFF will change the adoption of 3D printing in general.

AM Technologies:

Es gibt zahlreiche Einsatzmöglichkeiten für 3D Druck, die weit über Rapid Prototyping hinausgehen. Kommen Ihnen diese Fragen bekannt vor?
Benötigen Ihre Projekte mehr Zeit als geplant, weil Sie auf Ihre Zulieferer und Dienstleister warten müssen?
Sind zu hohe Kosten und zu langes Warten auf konventionell gefertigte Aluminiumteile ein Problem?
Sind Sie es leid, aufgrund von Kapazitätsengpässen ständig “NEIN” zu potentiellen Kunden sagen zu müssen?
Mit Materialien wie Glasfaser, Carbon oder Kevlar kann der professionelle Anwender echte Probleme lösen und Bauteile drucken, die bisher nicht 3D gedruckt werden konnten, sondern mechanisch gefertigt werden mussten.
Werkzeuge und Vorrichtungen können häufig nur bedingt additiv gefertigt werden, weil meistens nicht die benötigte Festigkeit erreicht wird. Jetzt wird abriebfestes Nylon mit Glasfaser, Kevlar oder Carbon verbunden und kann damit ein besseres Festigkeits-Gewichts-Verhältnis erreichen als Aluminium.
3D Druck für Kleinserien – das Unmögliche wird möglich!
Mittels Schichtstärken von 0,05 mm und einer integrierten Bauprozesskontrolle können Teile produziert werden, welche die gleiche Qualität aufweisen wie Spritzgussteile. An dieser Stelle ist es nicht übertrieben zu sagen: 3D Druck verändert die Produktion! Die Vorteile sind einfach immens: komplette Designfreiheit, hohe mechanische Belastbarkeit, hohe Wiederholgenauigkeit und extrem geringe Fertigungskosten.

Business Models and Value Chains:

That 3D printing is changing manufacture is beyond dispute. It also is and will change the size, shape and configuration of supply chains. What those changes will be, the supply chain models that 3D printing opens up and the wider implications of using it are less understood. This presentation will cover these points, with contemporary examples.

Afternoon Keynote:

3D printing/Additive Manufacturing has been so hype the past few years that it would be easy to forget that it is a 30-year old set of technologies—barely 10 years younger than the now ubiquitous PC. While the 3D Printing has undoubtedly gained ground, and has arguably become a cornerstone of some industries, it still remains to this day a niche manufacturing technology. To make 3D printing mainstream requires leaving the technology itself and focusing on usages. It also requires considering how 3D printing interacts with other ‘emerging’ technologies, such as IoT, Big Data, Machine Learning, biomimicry. This is what we will aim to do in this presentation.

AM Technologies:

The arc wire-based additive manufacturing technology, 3D-Metal Print 3DMP® is a stable and economical process that provides new possibilities for producing large-volume components at industrial scale. High deposition rates, low material and equipment costs and good structural integrity makes the arc-wire-based manufacturing a potentially high beneficial replacement to machining out of solid billets or forging. For the 3DMP® process various kinds of weldable materials are used. The material properties of the printed parts that have been validated in substantial tests and the possibilities of obtaining good mechanical properties and very high density of printed parts will be presented in depth.

Experience Smart Factory:

Additive Manufacturing (AM) enables toolless conversion of digital data into three-dimensional complex, functional and nature inspired bionic components. Hence, it is a core technology for implementation of industry 4.0 by coalescing virtuality and reality. A disruption of traditional design patterns including an optimal utilization of bionic principles in product development is necessary. But not only a change in design thought patterns, but a rethinking of factory structures and production layouts leading to bionic smart factories is required. The combination of profitable bionic design and interconnected smart factories will boost leading competitive positions when 3D printing takes over further innovative applications.

AM Process Chains:

Besides the technological advances of metal-based AM-Technologies and materials, the implementation of AM-Technologies into traditional manufacturing process chains is a significant key factor for the cost efficiency and the economic success of Additive Manufacturing. A fundamental requierement to implement AM in a conventional manufacturing process is the comprehensive knowledge about traditional manufacturing technologies and suitable consistent software solutions (e.g. integrated CAM modules). This knowledge helps to evaluate whether to substitute conventional manufacturing technologies with AM or to add AM to extend existing manufacturing technologies. Either way the outcome should achieve higher cost efficiency and flexibility in production.

Additive Manufacturing, especially Metal 3D printing is becoming more and more essential to manufacturing: it allows to create, quickly, fully functioning parts with high mechanical properties, and sometimes geometries that would be impossible to make with traditional manufacturing techniques. Consequently, most of the world’s top companies have taken notice and are making ambitious moves to capture their share of its potentially huge value. GE’s fuel nozzle and the acquisition of two of the leading companies that specialize in metal-based AM technology are only one example. BMW, Google and many more are among the investors funding Silicon Valley & MIT startup’s efforts to develop new polymer- and metal-based AM systems. Yet, there are still undiscovered secrets of AM in the context of Industrie 4.0 and agile development routines. This speech will share some insight in how AM ca help to exploit the potential in these fields.

Automotive and Future Mobility:

As product cycles tend to decrease and diversification increases, car developers have less and less time for designing and testing of components. For some parts even expensive tools are required, which usually have long lead times. Therefore, additive manufacturing of functional prototypes can be not only time-, but also cost saving.

During this project, a process route for a powder steel alloy has been developed in order to create additive manufactured functional prototypes via “Selective Laser Melting”. A typical chassis part has been used as a target component to collect mechanical requirements as boundary conditions. Based upon that, the process route of this chassis part has been tailored to meet the desired properties. Multiple tests and trials have been conducted starting from process window development, mechanical tests up to durability tests. At the end of the project, a fully functional printed prototype will be put into a vehicle and tested against its conventional stamped version.

The knowhow developed during the process should help FORD in the future to assess easily new design concepts or late design changes directly on the proving grounds using additive manufactured prototype parts.

Innovative Material:

With a 100$/KG material costs and a single source supplier, a serious OEM won’t easily commit beyond 3D prototyping. Furthermore, taking today’s injection molding market applications into account, PA12 as one of the current blockbuster might only cover a smaller number of applications: So, Polymer materials are still considered as one of the “show stoppers” once it comes to scaled 3D printing with different (esp. higher) technical material performance. Dietmar Geiser will give an overview on what pricingand technical responses in all major powder, filament and liquid materials can be expected from a material supplier.

Product Development Design for AM:

Van der Mast found a strong relationship in additive manufacturing between all sorts of aspects. Most of them relate to what happens in the build chamber. However, also design and build-preparation have their share as well as post-processing. For example, more support material may improve the product's geometrical accuracy, but more of it also comes with extra build time, material waste and post-processing. In most cases the optimal combination of settings is somewhere in between. The designer should be aware of that, or better: know what is involved. His challenge is to deal with the AM Design Paradigm.

This contribution gives an overview of the underlying mechanisms during material consolidation for powder bed additive manufacturing. Our numerical approach considers the melting and consolidation process by taking into account individual powder particles. This mesoscopic approach elucidates the stochastic effect of the powder bed on consolidation and residual defects. We demonstrate the important role of the powder bulk density and the powder size distribution on the necessary energy input to prevent defects. In addition, we demonstrate the important influence of the consolidation strategy on selective evaporation effects and grain structure evolution. Comparison with experimental data demonstrates the predictive power of our simulation tools.

Automotive and Future Mobility:

Additive Manufacturing bietet Potentiale in vielen Prozessen und Bereichen des Unternehmens. Der Vortrag soll zeigen, dass AM durchaus mit Industrie 4.0 zusammengeht und einen ganz wesentlichen Beitrag zur "Fabrik der Zukunft" haben kann bzw. schon hat. Weiter soll AM klar abgegrenzt werden von einer "nur" stark gehypten Technologie.

Am Beispiel von John Deere möchte ich zeigen, wo wir die heutigen Gals und Hindernisse sehen und woran wir arbeiten, aber auch wo wir die Potentiale sehen.

Quality and Process Capabilities:

As Additive Manufacturing is currently moving from prototyping to final part production new requirements regarding repeatability and part quality arise. The research work describes and compares different approaches for the adoption of process capability analysis for single part production with special focus on AM technologies. The extension of the approach towards the development of strategies applicable for process optimization and control is a possible future perspective. A method is described, to apply the in-situ monitored data for quality evaluation of the parts produced. The research work is the first step in the development of a process control tool for AM.

AM Applications:

The manufacturing technologies of Additive Manufacturing offer a wide range of advantages in product design and production, like complex geometries, customization or functional integration. It is possible to realize integrated pipes without dead spots or smooth surfaces without edges and cavities. Furthermore are stainless steels certified for the use in contact with food. For this reason the technologies are most suitable for use in food and packaging industries. Today, additive manufacturing in this industrial sector is not widely-used. The presentation gives an overview of possible applications in food technology. The applications are explained on the basis of realized parts.

AM Applications:

Wie kann metallische Additive Fertigung Einzug ins Automobil finden? 

Am Beispiel der Entwicklung des LightHinge+, einem ultraleichten Motorhaubenscharniers, zeigen wir Ihnen den Weg zur automobilen Kleinserienfertigung auf. Das von EDAG in Zusammenarbeit mit simufact und voestalpine konzeptionierte LightHinge+ nutzt durch ein effizientes software-unterstütztes Engineering die Potentiale der Additiven Fertigung voll aus. Es werden eine ultimative Gewichtsreduktion und Integration einer Fußgängerschutz-Funktion, mit geringer Nacharbeit für kleine Serien erzielt. 
Ein Schlüsselfaktor ist dabei die Prozesssimulation der Additiven Fertigung durch simufact, um Verzug und Eigenspannungen vorherzusagen und zu begrenzen. Insbesondere die Kompensation des Verzuges konnte durch den Abgleich mit optischen 3D Messsungen validiert werden.

Automotive and Future Mobility:

Montagehilfen in der Serienfertigung des Automobilbaus werden aktuell häufig lokal vom jeweiligen Werk entwickelt und hergestellt, eine Abstimmung/ein Austausch mit anderen Werken findet dabei nur selten statt. Dies führt dazu, dass dabei Erkenntnisse hinsichtlich (möglicherweise) verbesserter Funktionalität oder Ergonomie ausschließlich den Mitarbeitern des entsprechenden Werkes zur Verfügung stehen. Mit Hilfe der additiven Fertigung ist es möglich diese Erkenntnisse und Verbesserungen mit Mitarbeitern in Werken auf der ganzen Welt schnell und einfach zu teilen und die entsprechenden Montagehilfen bequem vor Ort "auszudrucken". Hinzu kommen erhebliche Einsparpotenziale hinsichtlich Kosten und Zeit gegenüber den konventionellen Fertigungsverfahren.

Quality and Process Capabilities:

Traceability is often mentioned as one fundamental requirement to reach the vision of Industry 4.0. In Particular to use Additive Manufacturing in serial production for industrial applications it is highly relevant to trace back from the physical product to digital product and process data. As individualization does not increase production costs in AM the most important step to realize traceability is the embedding of marking in the digital product data. Of course manual integration of markings is no option. Therefore a software-driven approach will be presented to ensure traceability with minimal effort of marking the parts individually not depending on the number of parts.
