Identifying the correct applications where to implement AM is a challenge on both the technical, as well as the business level. Magnitude provides a methodology for screening parts within the clients organization that is quick and fun to learn in order to make sure that clients can remain independent from external parties and quickly disseminate this approach internally. In addition to the process, we provide a number of supportive features to ensure successful implementation.
Target group: designers, sales, management, application engineers, production managers
Format: 2-5 days (dependent on scope), 25% theory, 75% workshops
Part screening is about more than just finding designs suitable for AM. With a number of application-specific tricks, Magnitude helps clients find parts that fully exploit the sintering process and help them gain a lasting competitive advantage while providing realistic and unbiased final part costs and project plan.
The first portion of the training focuses on a robust methodology developed to quickly identify and rank components for manufacturing in AM. In the process, clients will be able to prioritize the risk and manufacturability with AM.
With a general understanding of printable parts, Magnitude delivers to customers a modifiable cost per part calculator for clients to quickly assess the cost benefits and make GO/NOGO decisions of specific parts without working with external parties. Individual aspects of the process will be explained which govern the general price levers that are available to customers with regards to price optimization.
After a general understanding of part screening, clients will learn application-specific challenges in order to assess whether highly demanding applications are possible and what kinds of surface and dimensional requirements can be fulfilled. The process insights section is divided according to application requirements and material possibilities.
Based on experience within Aerospace, Tooling, Motorsport and general manufacturing, clients will review case studies from specific industry applications in order to understand the approach that service bureaus will take in fulfilling part requirements during manufacture.
Given Magnitudes proprietary solution for manufacturing parts with blind areas that typically are not machineable and/or require redesign, we spend additional time sharing with clients examples of geometries that can only be delivered with our solution and the SLM process.
After a general part screening is performed, Magnitude will develop with clients a specific project plan for any chosen application in order to give a hands-on understanding of the AM manufacturing process planning.
Given a defined project plan, and upon customer request, Magnitude connects clients with AM Service bureaus around the world that are experts in their given fields of application and will deliver parts within the scope of the customer requirements.
