Additive Workshop Speaker - Scott Huelskamp, PE
"Additively Manufactured Tooling in Sustainment and New Production Applications"
Presented by: Scott Huelskamp, PE, Team Lead, Composites Engineer, University of Dayton Research Institute
This talk will provide an overview of additively manufactured tooling solutions. Multiple sustainment-focused tools will be highlighted, including composite bond tooling, metal stretch-forming, and drill & trim guides. Cost, accuracy, and durability comparisons between AM tooling and conventional tooling will be presented. AM tooling for new production, both military and commercial, will be discussed, as will an approach for combining additive and subtractive techniques to construct an innovative and highly cost-effective composite bond tool.

About Scott Huelskamp: Scott Huelskamp is a composites engineer at UDRI specializing in advanced manufacturing techniques for the fabrication of composite and polymeric structures. He has almost 15 years of intensive composite/polymer experience ranging from materials development and component design to hands-on fabrication and production. His work at UDRI includes leading efforts on designing, printing, and finishing additively manufactured tooling for composite fabrication. This experience extends to FDM and large format AM processing. Mr. Huelskamp is currently leading UDRI’s AM tool efforts in the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI), which is developing a hybrid AM tool for manufacturing 40’ autoclaved aerostructures. Mr. Huelskamp is also leading efforts on developing low cost composite preforms using Tailored Fiber Placement technology.
Prior to joining UDRI, Mr. Huelskamp spent five years in the aerospace tooling industry, developing and implementing entrapped tooling solutions for large aerospace manufacturers. He has served as a Principle Investigator on a Navy SBIR Phase 2 program and successfully transitioned the resulting in-field repair technology to commercialization. Mr. Huelskamp holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and a MS degree in Materials Engineering and is a registered Professional Engineer in the state of Ohio.
