DM­RC Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on at the SFF 2017

From 6 to 9 August 2017, the 28th Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposium (SFF) took place in Austin, TX (USA). The SFF is one of the most important international conferences on Additive Manufacturing (AM). This importance is underlined by over 700 participants at the SFF. The conference offers researchers from all over the world the opportunity to present and discuss innovations and research results with international experts..

This adds important value to the work of the DMRC and provides new ideas and methods for further project work. The DMRC participated by giving the following presentations:

  • Mechanical Properties and color of TPE parts as function of temperature history in selective laser sintering process (Christina Kummert)

  • Design for Protection: Systematic Approach to Prevent Product Piracy during Product Development Using AM (Ulrich Jahnke)

  • Considering Machine- and Process-specific Influences to Create Custom-built Specimens for the Fused Deposition Modeling Process (Christian Schumacher)

  • Position-dependent Powder Properties in the Metal Powder Bed Laser Melting Process (Peter Koppa)

  • Laser Sintering Exposure Parameter Optimizsation by CT Scan (Christina Kummert)

  • Integrating AM into Existing Companies: Selection of Existing Parts for Increase of Acceptance (Thomas Reiher)

  • Ramp-Up-Management in Additive Manufacturing – Technology Integration in existing Business Processes (Johannes Büsching)

  • Rational Decision-Making for the Beneficial Application of Additive Manufacturing (Gereon Deppe)

  •  Areal Surface Characterization of Laser Sintered Parts for Various Process Parameters (Patrick Delfs)

  • Approve of Porosity for Increasing Process Speed in the Laser Melting Process of Ti6Al4V (Dominik Ahlers)

  • Computer Aided High Complex Geometry Generation for Product Optimization with Additive Manufacturing (Thomas Reiher)

  • Geometrical Accuracy of Holes and Cylinders Manufactured with Fused Deposition Modeling (Frederick Knoop)

The conference proceedings will be available online from about mid-November at the conference website:
