Event description

Description

InnoTech Alberta, in conjunction with the University of Alberta and Canada Makes, is hosting a two-day workshop addressing Additive Manufacturing in Alberta.

  • How do we work together to become more innovative and competitive?
  • What tools do we need to adopt?
  • What changes do we need to make?

The first day is a training course presented by Addworks™ at GE Additive. The full day course will discuss the concepts and tools necessary to adopt additive manufacturing.

The second day highlights a number of invited speakers and panelists to showcase their best practices in adoption of additive manufacturing.

This event is targeted towards designers, engineers, fabricators, innovators, and company owners.

*Seating is limited.

*Ticket price includes continental breakfast and hot lunch (please contact the organizer if you have special dietary requirements)

Day 1: Learning Seminar - Wednesday, October 10 (9:00AM-4:00PM)

Title

Best practices for your Additive Journey – Design, Process Selection, and Materials

Abstract

As organizations begin to adopt additive technology, they quickly realize that it takes different thinking, tools and processes to be successful in using additive in production-level manufacturing. In this workshop, Addworks™ at GE Additive will cover key concepts and best practices they use on a daily basis for its production of additive parts.

AddWorks is GE Additive’s engineering consulting team that helps companies with additive part development and production in the automotive, aviation and energy/power industries. Regardless of how simple or complex, AddWorks can help you navigate your additive journey and find a path most beneficial to your goals. GE Additive started their own additive journey over 4 years ago and is now the #1 additive user in the world.

The following outlines learning objectives for this workshop:

  1. Real-life use case examples of additive manufacturing
  2. Design best practices including requirements, conceptual design, process selection, producibility and FastWorks
  3. An overview of the material development process where machine parameters in combination with post processing drive the material properties and performance
  4. An overview of additive manufacturing processes and the various additive technologies
  5. An overview of the GE Additive innovation process used for the Additive Manufacturing
  6. Cost modeling considerations and methods for additive components.
  7. CT inspection for Additive Manufacturing
