TMS Additive Manufacturing Materials and Processes Workshop

Date: Sunday, October 9, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 pm
Location: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Room 315
Register for this workshop through the MS&T22 registration form

Additive manufacturing (AM) has become popular in the last few years, although seminal developments took place 25–30 years ago. The purpose of this workshop is to familiarize participants with AM processes and enable them to explore further to address their specific industry needs and leverage research opportunities. We will begin with providing an overview of current AM processes for metals, polymers, and ceramics; followed by a focused discussion on metal AM including powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition processes; and concluding with industry practices and needs. The discussions will highlight current challenges and research opportunities.

This workshop is designed for people in the materials and manufacturing community who want to learn more about AM processes. Academics and researchers will also benefit from discussions about current challenges to the full adoption of AM. Participants will become familiar with current AM processes and future directions.

Learn skills you can use at MS&T22 and beyond! This one-hour event invites students and professionals to develop a practical approach to networking. Emily Kinser of 3M and Vice Chair of the TMS Professional Development Committee will present an interactive learning opportunity where attendees will identify personal networking goals, learn how to lower barriers to personal networking, and develop a personal elevator speech.  This will be followed by a hands-on networking activity to practice new skills. 

Participants from all career levels are encouraged to attend, so that students and early-career professionals can learn from their more experienced colleagues.
