NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem: Technology Demonstration on 3D Printed Parts Manufactured with the Desktop Metal Studio System for Defense Supply

 

This technology demonstration is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for the New England defense supply chain. For more information, please visit ccat.us/NERDIC.

Join us for a virtual presentation on the use and results of generative design and resulting demonstration parts printed by Berkshire Innovation Center/BSS Additive.

Learn about what to expect when installing a Desktop Metal System; Overview of install & operations experience, facility, safety & training requirements, vendor support; How the BIC, CCAT and UMaine benchmarked these systems; How to access benchmark files and data; Description of DM case studies underway at BIC; How to access BIC’s facility for training, application development and project collaboration.

This session will be recorded and made available on-demand.

Learning Objectives

Learn how Desktop Metal Studio System can be used in defense manufacturing:
• How to prepare your facility, permitting requirements, facility certification options
• OSHA training and safety requirements, compared with LPBF, DMLS, LENS and Binder Jetting
• Advantages / disadvantages of printing with bound metal powder compared with LPBF
• Outline applications for DM metal prototypes, fixtures, molds and end use parts
• Review of the design process for benchmarking, developed with CCAT and UMaine – Can the NIST AM Test Artifact be used in FDM metal printing or is a new standard needed?
• Comparison of benchmark results with other 3D printing processes available at CCAT, BIC and UMaine (including LPBF, Binder Jetting, large format polymer FDM and DMLS)
• Can Fused Deposition Modeled Sintered metal parts meet Mil-spec end use requirements?
