The webinar, Wire based DED – Part 2: Material Properties and their Enhancement, will take place on August 26, 2021 at 10:00am ET.
This webinar, the second of the series, will primarily focus on the metals and their structure-property relationships in Wire based DED. Properties of metals such as Titanium and Nickel would be discussed in detail along with strategies to improve them using methods such as cold working. Baseline (as deposited) properties of other metals like low alloy steel, stainless steel and aluminum would also be presented.
The webinar will also talk about the different courses offered by Cranfield University in relation to Wire based DED that would suit newcomers (to the field) and seasoned professionals alike. Here, the content and structure of these programs would be discussed thereby, potentially benefiting anyone considering to go along this route.
Dr. Supriyo Ganguly is currently a reader at the Welding Engineering and Laser Processing centre and also the Course Director for MSc in Welding Engineering and Metal Additive Manufacturing programmes at Cranfield University. Previously, he held positions at the Manchester Materials Science Centre and Open University in the UK where he was primarily involved with research in weld/material characterization. Dr Ganguly also spent 3 years at Usha Martin Industries and 7 years at Tata Steel. In the latter, he worked with iron and steel and, as a technologist in product and process development,
His present research interests include the fundamental understanding of material interaction with different heat sources, joining of dissimilar metallic alloys and application of laser/arc hybrid process. Over the course of his research career, Dr Ganguly has 86 peer reviewed publications and supervised 14 research students to completion.
After completing this webinar, attendees will achieve the following:
Describe the Wire based DED process and connect it with the wider manufacturing world
Connect the different research areas and themes in Wire based DED
Summarize the different metals being deposited using Wire based DED and demonstrate understanding on their properties achieved in as-deposited and through further processing (cold working and heat treatment) and compare to the properties achieved through more traditional manufacturing routes
Contrast the different programs available within Cranfield University to gain and/or increase specialization in AM
AM Process Engineers
