Virtual Course - Metal 3D Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) within the Filtration Industry

The course aims to give attendees a basic knowledge of AM, the process and what is involved within the development of additive industrial parts. Not only will the course discuss the AM process but will also focus on Designing for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) and how it differs to conventional designing. Backed with case studies relating to the filtration industry, the delegates will leave with a wider understanding of the potential benefits AM can deliver to the filtration marketplace.

Course Outline and Objectives:
To gain an understanding of the key principles of Additive Manufacturing (AM) from concept through to completion.

  • To understand the benefits of AM in relation to filtration.
  • To understand the principles of Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and how it improves on conventional filtration designs.
  • To become familiar with the challenges of AM and how to overcome them.
  • To see how AM has already been applied within the filtration industry.
  • Wedge Wire
  • Woven Wire Mesh
  • Perforated Plate
  • Hybrid – Conventional Manufacturing and Additive Manufacturing
  • Filter Housings
  • Component parts
  • Metal Foam Media
  • Porous Media

What is covered?

  • Background to Additive Manufacturing (AM) in different material
  • A detailed outline of Selective Laser Melting (SLM)
  • Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM)
  • Surface finish and build orientation
  • Post-processing and finishing
  • Inherent challenges of Additive Manufacturing
  • Applied Additive Manufacturing within the filtration industry

Who should attend?
The course is aimed at anyone who wishes to gain a detailed insight into the basic fundamentals of metal additive manufacturing within the filtration industry. Distinct from the available academic courses currently being offered, the course is designed to be accessible for potential users of the AM, product designers, and anyone else who has an interest in learning more about the technology. The aim is to provide real knowledge backed with real experience.
