Who should attend?

  • DOAs and EASA 21.J holders looking to add AM to their workflow, or those who want to gain EASA 21.J certification for AM design
  • Anyone involved in the manufacturing of aerospace parts, such as engineers, machine operators, and technical maintenance
  • Management teams, including airworthiness officers, quality managers, and engineering managers

Core topics

Technologies, materials, and finishes

Become familiar with the possibilities and pitfalls of the additive manufacturing materials and technologies most relevant to the aerospace industry, with a clear focus on your particular project.

Design for AM

Discover methodologies and workflows to understand and apply the design benefits of AM, reduce weight, save costs, integrate functionality, and enhance performance.

Process control and qualification

Learn the roles of DOAs and POAs in establishing insight and rigorous control over each process step, from design to production and post-processing, paving the way for part qualification.

Application development

Learn to spot the applications where additive manufacturing can have the biggest impact. Identify economic and technical drivers, such as avoiding high minimum order quantities for spare parts and reducing the weight of heavy components, respectively.
