ASTM International’s Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE) will hold its 4th Snapshot Workshop on AM Industrialization and Automation on Sept. 11, 2020. The workshop coincides with the issue of the center’s second annual report, which highlights the robust portfolio of AM projects to accelerate research to standards, expansion of global team members and key partners, and much more.
The AM CoE annual report, available here, features the broad series of accomplishments from the past year, including the development of important certificate courses, a series of technical workshops, creation of an international conference, addition of new AM staff, in-kind investments, and much more. The report also outlines the new AM guide to support COVID-19 supply chains.
The upcoming one-day virtual workshop presented by the AM CoE covers key topics that drive AM industrialization and automation and current practices applied by major organizations implementing AM, including:
- Advanced materials,
- Multi-laser processing,
- In-situ process monitoring and control,
- Process simulation,
- AM automation, and
- Industry 4.0 (AM data management, machine learning)
Workshop attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn directly from industry experts and leaders. Participants will earn a Verification of Completion Certificate from the AM CoE. Learn more, or register for the workshop.
The AM CoE (of which EWI is a founding partner) has emphasized its commitment to empowering manufacturing innovation and accelerating the use and capabilities of evolving technologies. As the center moves into its third year, staff and partners will work to meet ambitious goals through expansion of the research and development portfolio, ongoing development of educational offerings, high-level partnerships across the industry, and increased stakeholder engagement such as workshops and conferences.
