Added Scientific is an official spin-out of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing at the University of Nottingham, home to Xaar’s High Speed Sintering (HSS) process and a $28.6 million advanced manufacturing facility.
For the first time since its incorporation in 2015, the company is delivering a program of 3D printing courses to the public, previously only available to businesses on a consultancy basis.
In the first offering, the company is launching six one/two days courses:
- Introduction to Additive Manufacturing (1 day)
- Polymer Additive Manufacturing (2 day)
- Metal Additive Manufacturing (2 day)
- Design for Additive Manufacturing (1 day)
- Economics of Additive Manufacturing (1 day)
- Future Developments in Additive Manufacturing (1 day)
Course content has been devised by Phill Dickens. A practicing professor of Manufacturing Technology at the University of Nottingham, Dickens has over 25 years experience in the industry.
As a co-founder and director of Added Scientific, he joins a team of four other academics who also contribute their expertise to the program. With CPD registration, the team also offer the courses as part of an attendee’s continuing professional development.
The deep dive course in metal additive manufacturing focuses specifically on the use of the selective laser melting (SLM) technique, as found in machines from SLM Solutions, Renishaw, Concept Laser, EOS and 3D Systems.
Aspects of metal additive will also be taken into account in the design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) course.
In this “Attendees will benefit from understanding of advanced design strategies for AM components,” including “topological optimisation and the use of lattice structures for lightweighting and funcitionalisation.”
The first course is scheduled for September 6 2017, with the final session taking place on January 17 2018. They will take place at the company’s HQ in Nottingham, UK.
