Leading the Way - Explore Engineering's Additive Manufacturing Technology
May 26, 2023 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Emera IDEA building 1345 Norma Eddy Lane Halifax, NS B3J 1B6
Dalhousie’s Faculty of Engineering is a leader in the exciting field of additive manufacturing research. Join researchers - Dr. Paul Bishop, Dr. Ali Nasiri and Dr. Kevin Plucknett - to explore new cutting-edge technologies including 3D ceramic printers and our large-scale metal additive manufacturing lab. Dr. Bishop will introduce you to the chain of equipment that allows study of the entire additive manufacturing production cycle from the new gas atomizer lab that converts alloys into powdered form, to the 3D metal printers. Together, they are producing parts for industry applications that are stronger, lighter, and more geometrically complex than could ever be created by traditional methods. They are also providing Engineering students with exclusive access to equipment rivalled by no other Canadian educational institution, and few others in North America.
Participants who register by May 12th will receive a special Dalhousie Engineering keepsake created from powdered alloy printed on our own 3D metal printers. Registration for this event is required and space is limited. The tour will take place from 10:00AM – 11:15AM, with a reception to follow.
