In our blog post about the metal seminar in India, we already explained that the country is making moves to bring forth Metal AM experts. Recently, we brought our Metal AM Academy to India and Singapore to further educate local metal users on the Metal AM process. The transfer of knowledge allowed the participants to use their machines better and grow their expertise.

Materialise’s Metal AM Academy is a training session focused on the Metal Additive Manufacturing process, with a particular focus on Laser Melting technology. On day one, the participants learned about the different aspects and challenges of the technology, machine components, powder properties and requirements, and finally design guidelines for Metal AM. Day two focused on more practical information and included topics such as: positioning and orienting metal parts (read our blog posts on advice for the best part orientation), support generation requirements (discover 5 easy ways to remove support removal), melt pool generation and influencers, part quality and post-processing.
