Workshop on Artificial Intelligence in Additive Manufacture

A joint workshop with CAM2 & MAPP

Date: 20 October 2021
Where: Online workshop
Link to registration (open until 17 Oct)

Just as Additive Manufacture – also known as 3D Printing – allows designers and engineers freedom of component design, enabling the direct manufacture of otherwise “impossible” objects, it also has the potential to offer materials engineers and metallurgists the freedom to control microstructure and materials properties in ways that were previously also seen as being “impossible”. 
To enable the degree of control that the technology seems to promise, however, requires that we exert an extremely high degree of control over the process. There has been a gradual recognition that to achieve this needs advances in machine control and sensor technologies but also in the application of modelling and machine learning in understanding process planning and, also its direct control.
Researchers, both at CAM2 and MAPP (EPSRC Future Manufacturing Hub in Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes) have been deeply involved in the development of new methods and strategies and their application to the control of the AM processes and components manufactured by AM.
This joint workshop will focus on this research and the opportunities that the digitalisation of the AM process offers and the continuing research challenges that it presents.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
  • Quality Assurance and Sensors for AM – including thermal, hyperspectral, audio
  • AI/ML and physically based modelling for AM
  • Ground Truth in AM processes
  • Digital qualification of processes and materials
