Quality of additively manufactured parts

Wednesday, July 6th, 2022, 4pm – 6:30pm

Suisse Technology Partners AG, Querstrasse 5, 8212 Neuhausen a. Rhf

Additive manufacturing offers advantages in many respects, whether it involves personalized, highly complex or lightweight parts. In all cases, the required material properties and process reliability must be guaranteed. For optimal results, the specifics of additive manufacturing must be taken into account at the design stage, and production must be carried out by experienced technicians using the right materials and parameters. Learn first-hand how quality can be planned, produced and tested in additive manufacturing. Speakers from research, practical application and material qualification could be won for this purpose. A tour of the Suisse Technology Partners laboratories and a networking apero will round off this exciting and informative afternoon.
