CAM2 Spring School 2021

The planned event in April is cancelled due to Covid-19!

Dear CAM2member,

We hoped for CAM2 Spring School 7-9 April, 2021, but we need to realize that the pandemic still going on and we have to cancel this event.


We are now planning for CAM2 Summer School 24-26 August, 2021. More information later this spring.

CAM2 is offering a Spring School seminar on powder-based metal additive manufacturing with a combination of lectures, visits to Arcam Academy and practical classes. 

The Spring School, following on from the successful Autumn School 2018, provides a basic understanding of additive manufacturing (AM) as the industrial method for prototyping and manufacture of advanced metal parts.


The aim of this seminar is to establish basic understanding of additive manufacturing (AM) as the industrial method for prototyping and manufacture of advanced metal parts. 

The course covers:

  • Overview of AM technologies
  • Pre- and Post-AM treatment 

The main focus is placed on powder bed metal additive manufacturing technologies, covering hardware design, powder properties, material properties and post-processing.


The seminar includes a lecture series that covers introduction to different AM technologies and resulting material properties. A number of guest lecturers from industry (manufacturers of AM equipment and manufacturers of AM parts) will be offered. 


The course is free of charge for CAM2 PhD students and for participants from each industrial partner within CAM2. Lunch and dinner are included.

For non-CAM2-memers, the cost is SEK 3,000 per person, incl tax.

In case of cancellations after March 17th or no-show, SEK 2,500 incl. tax will be charged. 

Travel and accommodation

Travel to and from the course, as well as accommodation, is at own expense for all participants.

Full attendance is required.
