EWI is pleased to present two additive manufacturing (AM) events this coming month. These free webinars are open to all interested participants:
- Working Towards a Full Additive Manufacturing Data Ecosystem
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
1:00-1:30 pm EST
As a founding partner of the ASTM Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AM CoE), EWI has played an active role in the effort to advance the Center’s three primary goals: 1) Develop a Common Data Dictionary (CDD) to set consistent terms and relationships for AM data, 2) develop a Common Data Exchange Format (CDEF) to enable robust data sharing, and 3) automate data acquisition for affordable, fast, and accurate data capture. Presented by EWI Applications Engineer Luke Mohr, this session will cover the latest standards research in the AM community and the the progress being made to implement AM standards.
- High Deposition Gas Metal Arc Welding Technology for Large-Scale AM
Tuesday, December 15, 2020
10:00-11:00 am EST
Robotic directed energy deposition (DED) is a versatile, rapidly developing technology for digital welding, AM, and parts repair. EWI is currently leading a range of large-scale DED AM initiatives to mature this technology for aerospace, energy & chemical, defense, heavy manufacturing, and shipbuilding structures. The technology offers many benefits and is compatible with robotic computer-aided manufacturing software. Senior Technology Leader Dennis Harwig and Applications Engineer Mike Carney will discuss recent work investigating the suitability of tandem/twin gas-metal arc welding for directed energy deposition as well as other aspects of EWI’s new research program for advancing arc DED technology.
There is no charge to attend either of these programs, but advanced registration is required.
