AM In-Depth - Building Mission Critical Parts with Metal AM

September 25 - 25, 2020

Mission critical parts are those that are essential for the operation of the application; when they fail, there is immediate impact to the business. Many of those parts fall into the turbomachinery category such as impellers, pumps, and manifolds, all of which have had a poor business case with metal AM due to their challenging geometries and heavy post-processing. As a result, many turbomachinery parts are still manufactured via subtractive methods.

Knust-Godwin introduced metal AM into their precision-machining environment nearly 8 years ago. They have had tremendous success using AM to breakthrough into new applications and giving mission critical parts a renewed business case with AM. This presentation will cover their journey as a machine shop, their successful integration of AM and how they are winning business.
