  • Share this page:

Informative videos and PDF's are available to give students a thorough introduction to materials with a focus on different types of Steel feedstocks for producing AM parts.


The online course will cover the following topics:

  • The effects of micro-alloying, relating grain refinement to mechanical properties.
  • AM conditions for a certain part taking into account the material ability for AM
  • Carbon equivalent (CE), t 8/5 concept and preheating temperature
  • Hardenability and maximum cooling rate
  • Types of heat treatments requirements for a certain part, inferring the heat treatment conditions (depending of the shape and size of the part, the application and the code).
