Additive manufacturing, commonly coined as ‘3D printing’, is an increasingly popular technology for the new age Digital Manufacturing involving the generation of parts and features from computer-aided drawings (CAD) in a typical layer by layer manner using various forms of materials from metals to polymers. A direct deposition is one of the many forms of additive manufacturing and in this course, the focus is on the laser blown powder technique for the manufacturing and/or remanufacturing of metal-based components – where a laser is used to melt metal powders delivered by a flowing gas to form first a melt pool which solidifies to create layers of deposition on a workpiece. It is synonymous with laser welding with a powder feedstock. This free-form fabrication method can be employed for a wide range of generative and regenerative applications such as feature addition and/or repair of components, coatings for functional purposes, on top of new component manufacturing, and across various industries – aerospace, automotive, marine and offshore, energy and infrastructure, heavy machinery, etc.
This course consists of theory-based lessons as well as practical hands-on activities on industrial machines available at the designated training site – which, unless under special circumstances, is the A*STAR’s Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) located within the Nanyang Technological University campus at JTC CleanTech Two.
Participants will be able to:
This course is targeted at organisations and/or individuals looking to have the first understanding or to develop the capability of the direct deposition method for manufacturing and/or remanufacturing applications. It is also suitable for those who are currently employed or who wish to be employed in manufacturing-related fields with the typical candidate profiles being but not limited to the following:
Our webinar was held on 31 August 2021 to offer an introduction to this course. You can also watch our webinar's video recording at our YouTube webpage.
The programme employs the Learn-Practise-Implement™ (LPI™) pedagogy, where fundamental knowledge and principles taught will be reinforced with hands-on practices.
