This course aims to introduce the fundamental concept and theoretical knowledge of polymer-based additive manufacturing (AM) processes to address high-mix low-volume production for applications in the Precision Engineering industry, as well as other related industrial sectors.
Participants will acquire knowledge and skills on material and polymer AM selection to fulfill specific functional requirements. New insight, understanding and more in-depth perspectives are gained on various polymer-based AM processes, such as stereolithography, selective laser sintering, fused deposition modelling, polymer jetting and other upcoming polymer AM processes. The course includes industrial case studies and practical lab sessions to substantiate technology adoption of polymer AM processes in high-mix-low-volume production.
This course is targeted at operation managers, manufacturing managers/engineers, production planning engineers, materials engineers, mechanical engineers, production engineers, foremen and skilled operators, quality control managers/engineers, materials purchasing engineers, laboratory managers and engineers, as well as all manufacturing industries with forming processes such as precision engineering, aerospace, biomedical, automotive, and electronics sectors.
