Advanced Manufacturing with 3D printing – Process chains of tomorrow– Presented by Moritz Wollbrink, Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

The industry is experiencing a strong shift towards industrial processes, standards and the application of latest technologies in the past years. It is now important to perform the next step towards the digitalization of all processes and the availability of data resources along the process chain. Additive Manufacturing on the other hand as well becomes an industrial technology. What started as a rapid prototyping technology then became a media and hobby manufacturers hype finally approaches the factories of the world. While processes, material availability and productivity are getting adult, a crucial lack remains unsolved: realizing integrated IT infrastructures in order to bring together conventional and additive manufacturing – this is especially valid when applying Additive Manufacturing for industrial applications. The presentation will showcase actual developments and applications of AM, “Industrie 4.0” and integrated process chains following the idea of “Connected, Adaptive Production”.

What kind of Surface Technology is asked for 3D-Metal-Printed items – Presented by Egbert Stremmelaar, ION

What kind of Surface Technology is asked for 3D-Metal-Printed items – Presented by Egbert Stremmelaar, Vereniging Industrieel Oppervlaktebehandelend Nederland, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

At the start-up of Vereniging ION (Association Industreel Surface Technology Netherlands) in 2014, none of the additive manufacturers was inclined to surface treatment. ION has filled that gap, because in the end, a product has to be delivered that can be applied with as few (machined) operations as possible and as many intrinsically applied advantages as possible, without the disadvantages of for instance SLM. With input from a few (large) OEM’s a specification has been drawn up, and we are now looking for suitable solutions. In this presentation we will inform you about the state of affairs.

Shortening the post processing chain through use of high pressure heat treatment – Presented by James Shipley, Quintus Technologies, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

When moving from prototyping to full scale production, repeatability and industrial robustness of operations is paramount. At the same time, reduction of the post processing chain is key to achieve cost reductions, process stability and integrity of the finished parts.

Digitized 3D Post-Printing to Enable Additive Manufacturing at Scale – Presented by Bruno Bourquet, PostProcess Technologies, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

With the forecasted exponential growth of the industrial 3D Printing industry comes challenges for the market to scale to achieve its full potential. One of these challenges is the bottleneck in post-processing as a result of methods adopted while the market was still in its infancy. These approaches, including manual labor and traditional finishing machinery, are proving to hinder scale-up to production volumes as they result in high breakage, low throughput, and inconsistent quality.

Finishing the Job – Automated Post Processing for 3D Printed Parts – Presented by Joseph Crabtree, Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd, at the 3D Printing Post-Processing Conference, December 4, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Sittard-Geleen, The Netherlands.

During the last decade, there has been a considerable growth in the production of end use polymer components via powder based additive manufacturing methods such as laser sintering and HP MJF. However, due to the nature of the powder based media and the layer by layer process used in additive manufacturing, quality, aesthetic and application issues remain, especially when compared to traditional manufacturing methods like injection molding. Current solutions to these issues mostly include labor-intensive post-processing that erodes many of the benefits of the digital additive manufacturing process.
