Symposium 5

Advanced Additive Manufacturing Technologies: Materials, Processes, and Systems

Additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies are globally recognized as novel fabrication processes for advanced ceramics and their structures. These technologies offer tremendous potential for design innovations and customization, complex part fabrication, rapid prototyping, distributed digital manufacturing, and structural and multifunctional integration. Through processing, three-dimensional models are designed and created according to theoretical concepts using computer software, and two-dimensional cross-sections are created by slicing operations automatically. In stereolithographic processing, high-resolution beams are scanned on a spread of ceramic powder beds with or without resin binders to form solid planes of two-dimensional cross-sections. In deposition processes. paste materials with ceramic particles dispersed in binder systems are fused from nozzles moving freely in three dimensions to create composite structures. In printing processes, binder materials are sprayed from fine nozzle holes to join ceramic powders using practical precision equipment. Various functional components of dielectric lattices to control electromagnetic waves, bio-materials components for medical applications, and ceramics electrodes with large surface area could also be developed. Large-scale structural components for aerospace and other high-temperature applications can be fabricated with internal cooling path networks formed without casting molds. Additive manufacturing also provides a novel approach for designing and fabricating structure-function integrated ceramics and structures. Functional properties, e.g., electromagnetic, acoustic, and thermal, can be achieved synchronously during the structural design. Thanks to additive manufacturing, it is now possible to design for function and not for manufacturing; nonetheless, each technique needs special design adjustments to boost products' efficiency. This symposium focuses on the superiority of design, efficient processes, and perspicuous evaluations in additive manufacturing and 3D printing of ceramics and their structures. In addition, various topics related to starting materials, characterization tools, Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) and in-situ monitoring of processes, qualification and certification, cost, and applications will also be discussed.
