Challenge for the Metal 3D Additive Manufacturing at Hyogo University

Akihiko Yanagitani UNIVERSITY OF HYOGO

Research Center for New Metal Materials established in 2028 equipped with a small gas atomizer and metal 3D printers of electron beam and laser beam methods, and launched the "Hyogo Metal Belt Consortium" to develop metal powder, modeling, and surface treatment of modeled products with participating companies.
The consortium is working with participating companies on the development of metal powders, modeling, and surface treatment of modeled objects.
Examples will be presented.

Introduction of 3D printing in the construction industry which brings DX innovation

Wataru Ooka COO Polyuse Inc.

The construction industry is calling for more rapid and safer DXing, partly due to the impact of COVID-19

It is also essential to train digital craftsmen who will promote more efficient and high-quality manufacturing by combining traditional technologies.

Polyuse, the only construction 3D printer company in Japan that develops 3D printers for construction and implements social implementation nationwide, will introduce the merits of its introduction and how it has improved construction efficiency, based on its experience.

Metal AM technology trends & promotion of domestically produced MEX metal

Hideki Kyogoku Dr. Eng Professor Kindai University

This seminar introduces the recent trends of PBF, DED, BJT, and MEX methods in metal AM technology, as well as a domestic MEX metal AM dissemination project consisting of pellet materials, a nozzle-type MEX 3D printer, and a dewaxing and sintering system.
