DfAM Course for Managers and Executives

DfAM Course for Managers and Executives

You are invited to attend a special one-day course on design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) for managers and executives. Topics include consolidating many parts into one, topology optimization, and lattice/mesh structures. The course includes considerations for metal, polymer, and composite materials, the creation of custom parts, and reducing the need for expensive support material. Presentations and hands-on exercises cover these and many other topics. Click here for the one-day course outline.

Benefits of DfAM

The images show a hydraulic manifold for Atlas Copco mining equipment. The version on the left is conventionally machined with 12 nozzles that must be installed. The one at the right was redesigned for and produced by AM. It reduced weight by 91% and consolidated 13 parts into one, resulting in lower assembly cost, less weight and scrap, and the elimination of potential leakage points. Learn how to design these and many other types of parts in this special DfAM course. Register now!

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe when, why, and how to use AM to add value to your products.
  • Discuss the economics of AM and the design factors that can influence part cost
  • Consolidate many parts into one to reduce part numbers, manufacturing processes, inventory, labor, certification paperwork, post-processing, and maintenance
  • Peer into to the future of AM applications, systems, and trends

Who should attend...

  • The DfAM course is targeted at managers and executives wanting to learn the design considerations surrounding implementation of AM for part production. It is ideal for those involved in aerospace, medical, motor sports, power/energy, industrial machinery, automotive, and consumer products.
