Addi­tive Manufacturing

from Design to Process

bayern design, bayern innovativ, and Zentrum Digitalisierung.Bayern (ZD.B) will host an informative soirée in Garching titled Additive Manufacturing - from Design to Process. The convergence of generative design, additive manufacturing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and data analytics offers users of additive manufacturing, designers, and creative people new 3D-printing options. The speakers will illustrate the entire process from start to finish: creation (including the use of generative design), additive manufacturing, analysis, and algorithms for optimized design.



4:30 p.m.: Registration/Coffee

5:00 p.m.: Welcome

5:15 p.m.: The Value of Design in Digitization
Wanja S. Steinmaier, Verband Deutscher Industriedesigner / Lumod GmbH

Digitization is disrupting the product landscape; entire classes of products are dematerializing and computer-generated design is using algorithms to develop solutions. Brand design is competing with individual, person-specific design. Users are seeking advice from and handing over their purchasing decisions to virtual assistants. What role will designers play in this scenario of the future? How can design create value when computers are being put in charge of shaping forms? The fundamental changes in this environment also affect the tasks and value creation of design. Used correctly and incorporated into the design process, generative design and the tools used in connection with it can reduce costs, foster innovation, and add value.

5:45 p.m.: Industrial Design
Harald Schmid, Gramm UG

An end-to-end method of designing components for metal powder fusion, also known as laser melting, at minimal cost and taking into consideration the special characteristics of this class of procedure

6:15 p.m.: Additive Manufacturing
Lars Langhans, FIT AG

6:45 p.m.: Optimizing Product Design with the IoT
Erich Holzinger, Woodmark Consulting AG

  • Sensors in products for optimizing product lifecycles and value creation
  • Persisting sensor data
  • Optimizing design using advance analytics and algorithms
  • Impacts of the IoT and digitization on business models

7:15 p.m.: Industry 4.0 Training Platform: Transferring AM Research to Disruptive Innovation
Dr. Paul Gromball, TMG München Global Resourcing GmbH

The goals of the global Industry 4.0 Training Platform approach are to close the qualification gap for the strategic use of additive manufacturing and to meet the increasing international demand for highly qualified employees. The approach is based on the development of problem solving skills originating in genuine industrial cases. Example: Norway where AM micro factories develop and build electronic vehicles locally.

7:30 p.m.: Get-together
