Join some of the leading actors in the field of laser re-manufacturing and large-scale metal 3D printing.

Additive manufacturing has become one of the main drivers within the industry 4.0 race. Laser technology-based 3D printing and re-manufacturing of new and defect components are developing into a huge market for many companies worldwide, both for suppliers, end-users, and customers. Intensive R&D activities are carried out within Additive Manufacturing and 3D macro steel printing at universities, research centers and private enterprises.

This seminar will present some of the leading actors in the field of laser re-manufacturing and large-scale metal 3D printing along with the absolute state-of-the-art in the technology e.g. new combination machines where AD/3D is integrated with machining of the component.

Fraunhofer ILT, a world leading R&D organization, will present their latest activities and development directions. GTV Verschleißschutz GmbH and DMG MORI, two leading equipment manufacturers will present typical applications in 3D metal printing. Furthermore, programming and simulation tools for 3D printing machines will be presented. DNV-GL, a leading classification society, will outline activities within quality assessment, guidelines and rules for AM/3D manufacturing.

The seminar also includes a visit to the new laser additive manufacturing and 3D metal printing equipment at Lindø Welding Technology, FORCE Technology, which enables AM/3D processing on large components.

Target audience

The seminar is intended for engineers working with re-manufacturing and repair of high value components within the iron & metal industry e.g. related to Energy, Power plants, Oil and gas, Tools and dies, Molds or Food producing equipment industry.

09.30 – 09.40   Welcome by ATV-SEMAPP

09.40 – 10.40   State-of-the art, visions and R&D developments within AM/3D                                                 manufacturing of metal components

Talu Ünal-Saewe, Team Leader, Fraunhofer ILT, Germany
Fraunhofer ILT is amongst the world’s leading technological organizations involved with laser materials processing and at the forefront with technologies such as laser welding and laser surfacing technologies.

Additive Manufacturing and 3D metal printing are some of the technological areas that are in a rapid development phase right now. State-of-the art, visions and R&D developments within AM/3D manufacturing of metal components will be presented.

10.40 – 11.00   Coffee break and networking

11.00 – 11.30   Laser re-manufacturing and large-scale 3D metal printing activities                                        at FORCE Technology

Steen Erik Nielsen, Specialist 3D Print & AM Technology, FORCE Technology, Denmark
FORCE Technology has been engaged with laser materials processing for more than 35 years. Laser surface treatment, laser cladding, inverse machining, laser re-manufacturing, additive manufacturing and latest laser 3D-printing are some of the phrases that, over time, often are denominations used in relation to basically the same technology. Laser technology-based 3D printing and re-manufacturing of new and defect components is developing into a huge market. Intensive R&D activities are carried out at universities, research centers and at private enterprises. Just recently, FORCE Technology has invested in a new installation related to mentioned technology, tailored for the handling and preparation of large scale metal components.
This presentation will cover equipment, typical applications and present activities.

11.30 – 12.00   Equipment and systems for AM/3D metal component manufacturing

Alexander Hitzek, Project Engineer, GTV Verschleißschutz GmbH, Germany
GTV is an experienced manufacturer of special machinery and provider of complete solutions in the field of thermal spraying and laser cladding.
The presentation will show the product spectrum, which includes complete flexible turn-key centers for coating and 3D component production. Integrated sensors permit automatic adjustment of laser power, edge detection for near net shape cladding applications and in-situ characterization of powder flow stability. Also, the geometry of the powder stream exiting the powder nozzle can be measured. Besides the benefits of these features in realized centers, we will look at the capability of flexible integration into complete production lines including data mining.

12.00 – 13.00   Lunch

13.00 – 14.00   Tour of Lindø Welding Technology, FORCE Technology

14.00 – 14.30   Equipment and systems for AM/3D metal component manufacturing

Tim Pfeuffer, Product Sales Manager, DMG MORI, Germany
DMG MORI, a global company with over 20 years’ experience with additive manufacturing of metal parts, offers two kinds of technologies within the field. With different machine sizes in the powder nozzle (DED) and the powder bed technology (SLM), they represent different technologies for many different applications in the field.

This talk will give an overview of the DMG MORI additive manufacturing product portfolio and show how hybrid manufacturing (milling and additive operations) and graded materials in the context of the Lasertec 3D series (powder nozzle) can open up for manufacturing possibilities.
Furthermore, case stories for DED and SLM applications will show the potential of AM and how it enables optimization of the manufacturing process and products (e.g. reduction of lead and delivery times, improved product performance due to new designs and material changes).

14.30 – 14.50   Coffee break and networking 

14.50 – 15.20   Design, simulation and programming tools for 3D-printing machines

Morten Kollerup Bak, CTO, Mechatronics Innovation Lab AS, Norway*
3D-printing (additive manufacturing) offers several advantages compared to other manufacturing methods, not least increased design freedom. However, efficient use still requires knowledge about the specific technology to be used and the associated design rules and tools needed to setup the process.

This presentation introduces tools and techniques for design and pre-processing for 3D-printing. The focus will be on metal 3D-printing using powder bed fusion and direct energy deposition with examples of both applications and software tools.

15.20 – 15.50   Quality assurance – development of standards for AM in oil & gas                                             and maritime sectors

Ole-Bjørn Ellingsen Moe, DNV-GL, Norway
Additive manufacturing is entering the oil & gas and maritime industries with the promise of design freedom, optimization and reduction of lead time. However, there are limited standards available for quality assurance of additive manufactured parts. Together with the industry, DNV GL develops standards and recommended practices to ensure that the industry can utilize the benefits of AM, while still operating safely.
In this presentation, DNV GL will present how these standards are developed, ongoing initiatives, and the newest addition to the AM standard portfolio.

15.50 – 16.00   Closing remarks
