This course commences at 9 AM and ends at 12:30 PM Eastern.
What happens when an AM part fails? Curious to learn more about how to avoid common failures before they occur? This ASME and Siemens Energy course partnership explores failure modes of laser powder bed fusion prints, covering the root cause and analysis of unique use cases—with a focus on avoiding future defects.
Uncover and resolve operation-specific issues related to laser powder bed fusion failures. Learn how to discuss failure modes of LBPF printing technologies and what happens when a manufactured part comes out of the machine with unintended results. Participants will be analyzing various parts and conducting a quick root-cause analysis—implementing quick assessment strategies of the defect to focus in and investigate. Watch as subject matter experts demonstrate common and unique examples of multiple failure modes, while discussing ways to avoid future failures and mistakes.
Siemens Energy and ASME are partnering to work towards scaling workforce development across the field of engineering. ASME’s agile course development, educational technology and learning science expertise—combined with Siemens broad AM know-how and experience—will enhance ASME’s Learning & Development course offerings.
As a result, the engineering community will benefit from an expansive body of subject-matter expertise, rooted in more than 10 years of scalable serial production experience in AM. All aspects of AM design, materials, and processes will be covered while connecting the AM ecosystem via Siemens to simplify the collaboration process and streamline new production processes.
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:
- Discuss efficient AM design methods to reduce iterations and minimize print risks
- Think critically to perform root cause analysis on a failed print
- Identify quick assessment strategies of print defects
- Analyze use cases to minimize print risks
Who should attend?
- Engineering teams at design and manufacturing firms, as well as individuals.
- Early to mid-career engineers, including design engineers, materials engineers, manufacturing engineers, and others with an interest in design for additive manufacturing with metals.
Course participants are expected to:
- Have fundamental engineering knowledge
- Basic to intermediate understanding of LPBF technology (laser, powder, melt layer-by-layer)
- General understanding of manufacturing and traditional manufacturing processes (i.e., machining/milling, casting, forging)
- Understanding of the process chain of laser powder bed fusion
- Some experience working in the manufacturing industry is ideal
This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.
Certificate of completion with 3.5 PDHs will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.
