- Location: Ångströmlaboratoriet, Lägerhyddsvägen 1 Polhemsalen
- Lecturer: Prof. Lars Nyborg, Chalmers University of Technology
- Organiser: Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory
- Contact person: Erik Lewin
Prof. Lars Nyborg from the CAM2 research centre at Chalmers technical university will present their activities and the possibilities of additive manufacturing.
The Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory (AM@Å) organises a series of seminars on the theme additive manufacturing. These seminars are held at the Ångström Laboratory and are open to all interested.
On Wednesday March 4th, Prof. Lars Nyborg from the CAM2 research centre at Chalmers technical university will present their activities and the possibilities of additive manufacturing, see abstract below.
The initiative organises lunch sandwiches for the attendants who sign up here https://forms.gle/4XLUzj7zyypDz1aV9 (deadline March 2nd, evening). You are most welcome to attend without signing up, but then you won't get a lunch sandwich...
CAM2 started 2.5 years ago as one of the new Vinnova competence centers in the 2017 call. Its focus is metal powder based additive manufacturing. CAM2 is hosted by Chalmers and Linköping University, University West, FCC and RISE are members. More than 25 companies are members, including powder producers, equipment providers, technology providers, end users and SMEs. International members are also involved. CAM2 activities follows an established project portfolio with 21 projects running on different level – from smaller senior research activities supported by MSc theses to the full-time PhD projects. Today, 22 PhD students are involved in CAM2, including 5 industrial and 2 institute PhD students. CAM2 attracted several spin-off projects to reinforce its activities and the total budget from these extends significantly above the basic centre budget. Beside research, CAM2 hosts workshops and summer schools, runs seminar/symposia covering the whole value chain of metal powder additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing courses at Chalmers connected to CAM2 activities involve active participation by industrial partners and industry tours and attracts about 40 students on BSc and 80 students on MSc level.
Some recent achievements include i) results on the effect of microstructure anisotropy on the tensile properties and initial model of introducing these properties in topology optimization model; ii) basic understanding of the powder degradation in EB-PBF; iii) effect of most relevant alloying elements in LB-PBF-processing of low-alloyed steels and Ni-base superalloys; iv) new alloy candidates for high-entropy alloy and high-strength aluminum alloys being investigated; v) development of process control strategies in LB-PBF using state of the art quality assurance systems.
