2-day course on AM in Norway this May

This course will give an overview of available processes, explain their underlying physical principles, present practical examples from joint industry projects, standards and qualification of AM parts, as well as discuss current research.

The course is intended for materials engineers within the offshore and subsea oil and gas, maritime, and energy sector; professionals working with manufacturing and fabrication; design engineers with a special interest in AM; executives seeking to understand the strategic implications of this innovative technology.

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is an emerging technique for direct conversion of 3D computer aided designs into physical objects using a variety of approaches. AM technologies are simple and flexible processes that allow for the creation of very complex and customizable 3D objects in just a few process steps.

This course will give an overview of available processes, explain their underlying physical principles, present practical examples from joint industry projects (JIPs), standards and qualification of AM parts and discuss current research. Upon completion, participants will get to know how AM can change the way we prototype and manufacture products in the future being exposed to work with AM themselves.

Typical participants are:

  • Materials engineers within the offshore and subsea oil and gas, maritime, and energy sector
  • Professionals working with manufacturing and fabrication
  • Design engineers with a special interest in AM
  • Executives seeking to understand the strategic implications of this innovative technology.
