TWI has announced a new course covering the Fundamentals of Selective Laser Melting (SLM).
The new course has been designed to equip attendees with an appreciation of the Selective Laser Melting process, including the advantages and disadvantages of SLM and the associated equipment and hardware.
Trainees will also learn about the end-to-end manufacturing process chain, including metal powders, component design and optimisation, derivation of SLM process parameters, post processing, cost issues and the certification and validation of SLM components. There will also be a focus on safety and certification. The course will not only cover Selective Laser Melting, but also give an overview of other Additive Manufacturing techniques.
