• This event has passed.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn from practical experience gained on qualifying large defect-free metallic parts as part of a major Additive Manufacturing project – the AMAZE project was a collaboration of 28 leading engineering organizations supported by the European Union
  • Hear from MTC scientists about why AM is unique against other manufacturing methods and requires new methods and standards development for identifying and reducing defects of different AM processes, in-situ and post-production
  • Understand what are the critical powder variables to control and how those impact build quality
  • Learn how to develop a powder ranking system
  • See how a materials data management system supports process optimization and is essential for effective qualification of parts.

Dr. Ben Dutton is a Principal Research Engineer at the MTC. He is an NDT scientist with both Physics and Engineer backgrounds and 13 years’ experience in NDT. He has been supporting the Net Shape & Additive Manufacturing group on several projects which require in-process and post build NDT. Ben is leading and participating in the development of a couple of international NDT standards for additive manufacturing.

Jason Dawes is a Technology Manager at the Manufacturing Technology Centre where he leads the Materials Engineering research group. His role is in the technical management of highly innovative research projects involving powder-based manufacturing technologies, such as additive manufacturing, laser cladding, and Hot Isostatic Pressing. He was awarded an EngD from University of Birmingham in 2014 in the field of Chemical Engineering.
