Processing of advanced materials

Additive Manufacturing has not only enabled unprecedented freedom in design but has also unlocked processing of advanced materials. During this talk you will discover recent advances in developing end-to-end additive manufacturing process of advanced materials for your applications.

This talk presents recent developments in end-to-end AM process for advanced metallic materials that are enabling novel applications in engineering and may bring significant added values compared to traditional alloys. Examples being presented are (i) shape memory alloys and its application for actuators, and (ii) metal matrix composites providing high specific stiffness and high strength while being lightweight.
