Workshop: Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing
14. September 2021


SAVE THE DATE: Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing allows for innovative products in many areas, such as the automotive industries, machinery and plant engineering, medical technology or even in consumer sector. The requirements for production are often completely different from those for conventional processes. In the common workshop "Innovative Product Development by Additive Manufacturing" from LZH and IPeG, we want to address what factors are important and how scientists and companies can use them for their advantage.

General information:

Additive Manufacturing processes are already being used successfully in wide-ranging areas such as the automotive industry, mechanical and plant engineering and medical technology. Due to high flexibility, targeted variation of the machine parameters and the often contactless production, there is a considerable added value compared to conventional processes. A decisive factor in the process chain of additive manufacturing is the design. Components can be newly or differently designed and optimised, for example, with regard to their topology. For an evaluation of suitability, potentials and requirements must be specified, geometries must be designed and components must be simulated and validated. In addition, a close link between internal company processes and business models and design is necessary.

Specifications, potentials and solutions
Contributions to specifications on components and processes, methods for assessing the suitability of components and the application of additive manufacturing as well as finding solutions for concepts and design.

Design and Optimization
Contributions to the development and design of components, their design to ensure functional requirements and manufacturability as well as methods and tools for optimization components.

Simulation, validation and quality assurance
Contributions to approaches for the computer-aided and physical validation of components, the testing of components and material as well as measures to ensure quality aspects.

Process chain and business models
Contributions to their integration of additive manufacturing processes into existing processes, measures to increase value creation and the creation of new business models.
