Free-To-Attend Additive Manufacturing Courses From SAM Project

  • Share this page:

As part of the EPMA's commitment to the development of the Additive Manufacturing sector, two online courses are to be organised within the scope of EU funded Erasmus+ project SAM. The courses are free to attend and open to all AM engineers and graduate students.

CU027: Additive Manufacturing with Steels feedstock (excluding Stainless Steel)

The online course with the topic of "Additive Manufacturing with Steels feedstock (excluding Stainless Steel)” will take place from 21st January to 16th of February 2021. The total lecturing time is 21 hours.

This course aims to give students a thorough introduction to materials with a focus on different types of steels as feedstock for producing AM parts, namely: carbon steels, Cr-Mo, maraging and high strength steels. The online course will cover the following topics:

  • Processability with AM, including obtained properties and their relation with process parameters
  • Main causes of cracking and how to avoid them
  • Possible imperfections, including metallurgical imperfections.
  • Selecting types of heat treatments when necessary

For the types of steels: low alloy, Cr-Mo, maraging and high strength steels:

  • 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).

Please check the table below for programme of the course CU027.

CU030 : Additive Manufacturing with Nickel feedstock

The online course with the topic of "Additive Manufacturing with Nickel feedstock” will take place from 11th to 19th  of January 2021. The total lecturing time is 7 hours.This course aims to give students a thorough introduction to materials with a focus on different types of Nickel as feedstock for producing AM parts. The online course will cover the following topics:

  • Nickel processability with AM
  • Main causes of cracking and how to avoid them
  • Types and goals of heat treatment techniques
  • Interpreting the processability with AM for each alloy with different AM processes and feedstock
  • The applications, recommending processing parameters and shielding gases to achieve quality requirements for a specific part
  • Recommended methods to avoid cracking phenomena and solid-state micro fissures, providing alternatives where necessary.

Please check the table below for programme of the course CU030.
