Additive Manufacturing

Stereolithography, fused deposition modeling, selective laser sintering, 3D printing - the range of additive manufacturing processes is broad. The industry is on the rise and the latest developments are presented every month. This makes it all the more important to stay up-to-date in this booming field. Shape the future of manufacturing with up-to-date knowledge and the practical skills you need. Our challenging courses for additive manufacturing offer you just the right basis for turning your product ideas into reality.

Currently our offer regarding standardized education courses in English is limited. If you cannot find the topic suiting your requirements you may look at our German website for courses additive manufactoring or simply contact us. A customized course meeting your requirements as in-house-training is always a possible solution.

Precision micro-additive manufacturing has changed the economics of manufacturing. Precision micro-AM delivers significant reduction in prototyping and product design cycle time for micro molding and microparts.    By taking manufacturing design capabilities down to the micron and reducing prototype and part manufacturing times down to hours ― whether you’re making parts or molds. That level of precision is a pathway to new competencies that can completely change how your business competes. The benefits are tangible and valuable: Faster time-to-market Cost efficiency not limited to large-scale projects Removing the tooling costs improves unit economics Seamless transition from small-batch to large Shorter production cycles allow you to quickly move on to the next job Manufacture micro-parts with micro-precision and full accuracy Solve a variety of challenges by using a range of different materials Speed up innovation with fast, inexpensive prototyping Reduce exposure to external risks by manufacturing internally Produce small batches as cost effectively as large ones Suppliers can say “yes” to more challenges and win more orders. OEMs can innovate their prototypes at incredible speeds. Researchers can break through to new levels of miniaturization. And it can all be done faster, better, and cheaper than ever before when you understand precision micro-AM.  Precision micro-AM changes the paradigm of possibilities, helping you win bigger by thinking smaller. From the moment a challenge emerges, you can start to think in terms of micro-level details - without the need for tooling. And you can execute prototypes in a matter of hours.

The term "3D printing", which was coined by the inventor, has now become a generic term for all 3D printing processes. To avoid misunderstandings, the abbreviation "3DP" is therefore often used. Equally common is the term "binder jetting", which already allows initial conclusions to be drawn about the basic principle.  This is very similar to the way a classic office inkjet printer works. However, here the paper is replaced by a powder material. You will have access to this course for 12 weeks from booking. You will receive a certificate of completion after passing the learning test.

In addition to binder jetting, material jetting is another additive manufacturing process based on an inkjet printhead. In material jetting the entire material discharge takes place via the nozzles of the printhead. The process builds up the model layer by layer from its cross-sectional surfaces, which were generated from the original CAD model by software called a slicer. Material jetting allows for the finest details and small layer thicknesses. Hard/soft mixtures are just as printable as transparent or colored models. Most sources attribute the invention to Objet, a company founded in Israel in 1998, which launched the process under the name Polyjet Modeling (PJM) in 2000. However, a parallel development also took place at 3D Systems, which, according to its own homepage, already had a printer in its portfolio in 1996 based on the same basic principle, which they called Multijet Modeling (MJM). You will have access to this course for 12 weeks from booking. You will receive a certificate of completion after passing the learning test.

The WBT "Plastic Science" explains to the participant how plastics are created, structured and composed. The materials used for 3D printing, such as thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), play a key role. In addition, fillers and reinforcing materials are examined in more detail in the module. Drying, mechanical properties and material production are also part of the learning unit.  The WBT offers interactive features that make learning more effective and engaging. Learners can apply their knowledge directly and also receive immediate feedback.  Compared to traditional training, WBTs are typically less expensive. There are no travel or accommodation costs, and materials can be delivered online, eliminating printing and distribution costs. For companies, WBTs offer the advantage of reaching and training large numbers of employees at the same time. This is especially important for those who need to train a large number of employees. You have access to the course for 12 weeks from the time of booking. After passing the learning test you will receive a certificate of completion.
