ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING FOR METALS: ISSUES AND CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
Dr. Nguyen Hung, Texas A&M University, Texas, USA
Additive manufacturing has transformed the early rapid prototyping technique to 3D printing of engineering components. This technique has revolutionized traditional subtractive methods when fabricating components by adding layers of polymers, organic materials, ceramics, or metals. 3D printing of metallic components has been commercialized and received lots of interest from industry due to its potential cost saving and ability to generate complex shaped engineering components while reducing machining skills.
This seminar reviews suitable 3D printing techniques for metals and reliability issues that prevent additive manufactured parts from directly replacing of current subtractive manufactured parts in demanding applications. Surface and volumetric defects of selective laser melted Inconel are shown, and current remedial research efforts are presented and discussed.
Dr. Hung is an Associate Professor and Faculty Fellow at Texas A&M University (TAMU), USA. He spent 13 years serving international industry before starting his academic career. He taught at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, National University of Singapore, California State University San Diego in California before joining TAMU. Dr. Hung is an alumnus of HCMC University of Technology, and currently teaches the short course ME 3201 Manufacturing Process III at the department of Mechanical Engineering of HCMC University of Technology.
Dr. Hung obtained his bachelor and master degrees in mechanical engineering from University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and his PhD in the same field from University of California in Berkeley. Dr. Hung teaches manufacturing and researches in advanced materials and manufacturing techniques. He and his group have published four book chapters and more than 200 technical and educational papers. Beside teaching and researching, Dr. Hung also serves as the faculty advisor to the award winning Vietnamese Student Association at TAMU.
