Smart Additive Manufacturing System (45 hours)

Smart Additive Manufacturing Systems
This course is one of five modules stackable for the Graduate Diploma in Precision Engineering, specialising in Additive Manufacturing.

Building 3D objects layer-by-layer, commonly known as 3D Additive Manufacturing (AM), is one of the most sought after manufacturing technologies today for high-value added engineering applications. Advantages of 3D AM technology include design flexibility and variety for high-mix low-volume production setting, capability to build intricate objects with internal features, which would be challenging for other manufacturing processes (such as molding or casting) as well as minimum assembly required for moving parts. Being a tool-less manufacturing process, 3D AM offers faster lead time for complex and customised products. The various 3D AM systems share the main principle of building 3D objects layer-by-layer according to each layer’s cross-sectional area. The Wohlers Report 2017 stated that the worldwide AM industry was expected to grow from US$ 6 billion in 2016 to US$ 26.2 billion by 2022.

This module provides the introduction and overview to 3D additive manufacturing, as well as unequivocal advantages of 3D AM to manufacture complex and customised functional parts. It offers participants the opportunity to appreciate the uniqueness of 3D AM technology, the importance of digital manufacturing and the understanding of necessary design requirements for additive manufacturing. Participants will also integrate AM, while implement procedures and operations according to standards and WSH requirements.
