“I think the biggest thing is ensuring that we can get the quality and repeatability that you can get from traditional manufacturing, or better,” says Melanie Lang of Formalloy, a San Diego-based company offering solutions for Laser Metal Deposition (LMD). Once these goals are accomplished, she says, “The next step for LMD is really to help with additive’s transition to full-scale production.”

Consistent iteration of an additively manufactured metal part can be a hassle without the correct monitoring tools. As the adoption of metal additive manufacturing (AM) grows, part quality, replication and monitoring are becoming essential, especially when considering the current trend towards implementing additive production.

At the 2019 Additive Manufacturing Conference, Melanie Lang, co-founder and managing director of Formalloy, will speak on laser-based directed energy deposition (DED). Lang will also cover how to better understand and use metal AM technology and build-process monitoring equipment to achieve accurate and repeatable parts.

The session will take place on Wednesday, August 28, at 11:45 a.m.

  • Testing the Waters with DMLS Faucets

    A plumbing products manufacturer is expanding its luxury line with a series of faucets that could only be produced with AM.

  • The Future of Manufacturing

    According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?

  • 3D Printing with Postprocessing in Mind

    3D printing requires different finishing considerations than traditional manufacturing. One expert offers do’s and don’ts for approaching the finishing of additively manufactured parts.
