Additive Manufacturing Technical Working GroupBy: Kenny Kort

Buffalo Manufacturing Works continued our Technical Working Groups with a session featuring the latest technologies in additive manufacturing to a packed room of participants including members of our Founders Council, manufacturers and partners at the University at Buffalo, NYS Center of Excellence Materials Informatics and Insyte Consulting.

The technical working groups serve as an important component of technology road mapping activities so like our conversation on machining & finishing, we were energized by the dialogue and interest around the topics presented including:

  • Vat Photopolymerization
  • Material Extrusion
  • Material Jetting
  • Binder Jetting
  • Powder Bed Fusion
  • Directed Energy Deposition
  • Sheet Lamination
  • Functional Printing

Laser additive manufacturing and integrated milling seemed to spark attendees’ imaginations as did the potential of Electron-Beam Melting (EBM).

Our Technical Working Groups continued with a session on Flexible Manufacturing (stay tuned for a recap next week) and will wrap up this week with a survey of emerging technologies expected to impact materials processing, characterization and testing in 2015.
