Nowadays, it is difficult to find an AM machine, making metal parts at a relatively low cost, making the technology inaccessible for many smaller companies. On 14 December, the FabricAr3v project partners will organise a conference & networking day on low-cost metal 3D printing technologies.

Recently, the Additive Manufacturing department at Sirris acquired, with financial support of the Feder IAWATHA framework, new equipment for thermal and mechanical analysis and characterisation of materials such as plastics, metals, ceramics, glass, gels, (thin) films, chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, and even liquids can be used to some extent.

What can go wrong in additive manufacturing and how to tackle these challenges? This is the topic of a webinar by A6K | Advanced Engineering Center, in cooperation with Sirris. Expect a deep dive into operational and quality issues in industrial AM processes for metals (laser powder bed fusion, electron beam melting and laser cladding), followed by mitigation solutions.
