Course overview
The Metallurgy Winter School on Additive Manufacturing organized by CoMET aims at providing a deep understanding of fundamentals of metal additive manufacturing, with a particular focus on the metallurgical aspects known to determine the performance of AM products. After a brief overview of the various processes and metals for AM and an analysis of the market, the various aspects related to the quality of the powders, the types of alloys for AM and how to design dedicated ones will be explained. Subsequently, the different AM processes, microstructures, and possible defects will be treated, highlighting how they are created during AM processing. Additionally, the various heat and finishing treatments aimed at improving the performance of AM products will be presented. Modeling and simulation of additive manufacturing will also be treated and the attendees will be invited to analyze case studies, with practical use of available software. A visit to an AM facility will allow the participants to enter in the practical aspects of AM technology.
