A Case Study in AM: Optimizing Geometry-Specific Process Parameters for SLM Builds

15 jan. 2020 17:00 — 18:00 Add this to Calendar

In this webinar, guest speakers from The Welding Institute (TWI) and the ANSYS Granta team present a software-based application for optimizing process parameters for selective laser melting (SLM) builds. The "holy grail" of metal additive manufacturing (AM) is producing reliable, high-performance parts with minimal post-processing required. This demands geometry-specific process parameters that enable a near-uniform thermal history throughout the build.

Through the collaborative PASSPORT project, TWI and ANSYS have explored a software solution for selecting process parameters for AlSi10Mg SLM parts, based on metallurgical characterization results.

What you will learn:

  • The objectives and outcomes of the PASSPORT project
  • How ANSYS Granta tools can be used for the selection of optimum process parameters for SLM builds of complex structures
  • How such tools can be customized to communicate with other software
