Direct Deposition 3D Printing for Manufacturing & Remanufacturing* (40 hours)

Banner_Direct deposition 3D printing for manufacturing and remanufacturing
*This is a non-WSQ module.

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.

About the Programme

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:

  • Learn the fundamentals of direct deposition and the laser blown powder (LBP) process – underlying concepts, key process inputs and outputs, system technology, and possible applications
  • Gain practical skills in the required programming, as well as pre-and post-process activities to generate simple build geometries
  • Acquire the know-how to draw input-output relations and in perform first-pass quality assessments for an actual deposition process
  • Learn key process risks/hazards and best practises pertaining to system and operational health, safety and environment (HSE), as well as gain knowledge on the necessary licences and approvals to run an LBP process

Who Should Attend

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:

  • Process technician/engineer
  • Production supervisor/manager
  • Quality control manager/engineer
