Additive manufacturing – Latest trends, applications and testimonials from real projects

Manufacturing is an ecosystem in which each technology fills a specific niche. 3D printing and 3D printing on metal are valuable resources—they can be used to cost-effectively and efficiently produce many of the low volume, high-strength parts critical to the production line. In production and manufacturing, productivity is directly linked to revenue and performance. By offloading production, and therefore costs, from machines or manufacturing services to fast on-site manufacturing machines, you can save money through return on investment (ROI).

In the sessions at the 2019 CAE Conference, medium-sized companies and university professors will illustrate their successful projects in topology optimization, design for additive manufacturing, and process improvements that show real savings. The positive ROI of the selected cases has been achieved by eliminating the “routine” manufacturing costs of the product, such as maintenance labor, prototyping, and tooling costs -- factors that can make additive worth the investment.

Target Audience: CEOs, R&D managers, Production and Process managers, Senior project managers

 

PRELIMINARY AGENDA

Marco Tormena, Regional Channel Manager | EMEA (South) at Markforged

Tools, jigs, and fixtures with Markforged
CMM fixtures, Welding fixtures, soft jaws, end effectors, Intricate and One-off part

Abstract
During the speech, we’ll show how 3DZ users have reduced costs and optimized production floor uptime in their everyday manufacturing operations. We’ll present Italian case studies, with concrete application from one of the mentioned application. Samac (www.samac.it), Italian company from Brescia, will briefly explain the advantages in the use of technology in their daily operations. From custom soft jaws for difficult machining operations to alignment jigs for welding, an industrial 3D printer can improve many of the behind-the-scenes tasks associated with manufacturing and fabrication.

Massimo Lenti, Technical Director di Marangoni Tyre Machinery

Machinery design 4.0: digital twin, topology optimization and additive manufacturing. Concurrent engineering aspects

ABSTRACT
Machinery Design is evolving by using new digital features such as digital twin, topology optimization and additive manufacturing simulation. Concurrent engineering aspects are more and more relevant to reach a comprehensive result, so in order to get a wide assembly optimization. The new opportunities coming from the additive manufacturing may be enhanced by a new project design approach by using assembly machine simulation and structural optimization as well to get a complete machine redesign for future.
CURRICULUM
Massimo has been technical director of Marangoni Tyre Machinery since 2014. He has a Master's degree in Engineering and is an Italian chartered engineer. His professional background is in system integration and mechatronics in the automotive, railway transport and energy engineering domains. His wide international experience began in 1997, since when he has worked for companies including Fiat, Alstom, General Electric and SIT Group.

Marco Tormena, Regional Channel Manager | EMEA (South) at Markforged
Matteo Anfuso, CEO Eurogalvano s.r.l.

Metal Printing with Markforged
3D print industrial metals more easily than ever before

ABSTRACT
The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting. During the speech one testimonial (Eurogalvano - eurogalvano.it - company based in Brescia) will explain the advantage from a ROI standpoint. Owner, Mr Matteo Anfuso from Eurogalvano will show post processing in details and the results his company achieved by using this technology.

Gianpaolo Savio, Researcher at University of Padova

Design for Additive Manufacturing – the real key enabler
Enormous design freedom provided by AM. Lattice structure and more

ABSTRACT
Prof Savio, from University of Padova will present several design methodologies such as the one of topology optimization. These techniques need to be considered and adopted already at the design stage. Several industrial case studies are presented in order to demonstrate the power of the proposed approach including both polymer and metal components. A number of strategies that enable lattice structures to be derived from Topology Optimisation (TO) results suitable for Additive Manufacturing (AM) are presented in this presentation. The proposed strategies are evaluated for mechanical performance and assessed for AM specific design related manufacturing considerations.
