Intermediate Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
Discover the potential of additive manufacturing for business opportunities, sustainability, process optimisation, and more.
Explore the benefits of additive manufacturing across different industries
The use of additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, has rapidly progressed in recent years. It is now much more than a tool for producing parts and instead, can be used to unlock a wealth of business opportunities.
This ExpertTrack will take you on a deep dive into additive manufacturing to understand how it can form a business at three levels: how to adapt the business model, create new products, and how to set up the 3D printer to create new materials through printing.
Uncover the business opportunities of additive manufacturing
As you explore the current AM landscape, you’ll discover how existing business can be enhanced, and new business created using additive manufacturing.
You’ll understand how to prepare a business model canvas and apply it to a real-life case study before learning the best practices for pitching your AM business case.
Explore how additive manufacturing supports sustainability
You’ll gain an industry-specific overview of additive manufacturing and how it can help support chemical industry products and the manufacture of hydraulic blocks.
With this understanding, you’ll explore how AM can be used to support sustainability across different industries.
Delve into Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF)
With a solid understanding of additive manufacturing, you’ll explore how Laser Powder Bed Fusion is used effectively in metal additive manufacturing.
This knowledge will help you understand how you can optimise parameters to produce new materials with LPBF.
You’ll also take a test on the LPBF process parameters to demonstrate your knowledge and upon successful completion, you’ll gain a certificate of achievement.
By the end of this ExpertTrack, you’ll have increased your understanding of additive manufacturing and know how to use it to its full potential.
