Introduction to Additive Manufacturing and Composite Tooling Applications

Instructor: Rick Neff, Rick Neff, LLC, CEO

Additive manufacturing (AM) is an innovative process that when properly implemented can have a profound impact on a company. AM is not one process but many that each have particular strengths and weaknesses. We will focus on understanding the processes, materials and applications used across the AM industry. Understanding the promulgation of misconceptions and sorting out the hype from the true value is important to implementing an AM program.

One of the key technologies to manufacturing composite parts is quality tooling. Additive manufacturing has the promise of reducing the cost and the lead time significantly over traditional tooling for composite manufacturing. Aerospace has been working to qualify processes, materials and methods for both production and prototype tooling. Years of research between leading companies, research laboratories and OEMs have continuously yielded exciting new results.

Companies can routinely process a variety of tooling materials from room temperature applications with thermoplastics like ABS and Polycarbonate to high temperature materials such as PPS, PSU, PESU and Ultem. Additive manufacturing can be effectively implemented with some basic understanding and some simple strategies.
