Conference Theme

Additive manufacturing (AM) also known as 3D Printing being a novel and recently acquired techniques enables increased design freedom via layer-by-layer deposition of powder and having unique structural design features. These are not possible through conventional manufacturing route. AM enables economic production of low-volume engineering components that can be highly specialized. AM finds good lot of applications in defense, automotive and aerospace sectors. A reasonable amount of work has been reported regarding research and development activities in 3D printing, also known as rapid prototyping for achieving the improved properties in terms of strength, corrosion, wear residual stress and metallurgical characteristics. In the 3D printing technology, Direct Metal Layer Sintering (DMLS) and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) processes are quite popular and widely used. The adoption of different input settings such as layer thickness, laser-scan speed and its orientation, types of powders are important to optimize the process parameters. However, AM has certain challenges such as component size, consistency in the product quality, limitations of scalability, usage of very few and expensive material powders and limited multi-material capabilities. Hence the conference addresses and discusses these challenges and issues with special focus for aerospace and defense industries. This program would immensely benefit the practicing engineers from the manufacturing industries, scientists and engineers from the R&D organizations, faculties, research scholars and students from academia as a part of problem-solving exercise as well as standardizing the input parameters for best properties and achieving reliability in the performance.


Additive manufacturing technologies are designed to provide a good transformation to produce parts/products to near net shape. The conference would serve as a platform for scientists, researchers, students, engineers from the manufacturing/production units, quality control departments of various industries, R & D organizations, education institutes from the point of learning exercise, gaining knowledge and discuss the challenges pertaining to AM by way of interactions and assimilation of facts. The conference primarily focuses on the technological challenges and advances in AM, residual stress induced during AM manufacturing, developing Indian standards for AM, repair technologies and exploring development of ecosystem in training and awareness of AM. Exhibition and demonstration of producing AM parts involving automation are planned with the participation of leading manufacturers and software companies.
