Metal 3d Printing, Robots and Supersonic Particles

5.30pm — 7.30pm AEST, 25 August 2022
Level 9, 340 Adelaide Street Brisbane, Queensland, 4000


About the event

In this presentation you will gain an understanding of digital tools that have been developed to help automate additive manufacturing and repair of metal components.

This includes reducing the time spent programming robots and understanding and controlling the metal deposition process.

Cold spray is a solid-state process in which metal particles are accelerated towards a surface by a supersonic gas jet. The main drivers have been low heat input, ability to deposit metal ‘outside the box’ without atmospheric protection and build rates of the order of kilograms per hour.

About the speaker

Peter King
Team Leader for Deposition and Additive Structures, CSIRO Manufacturing

Peter is a Materials Engineer who specialises in metal additive manufacturing and cold spray. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Monash University, and PhD at Deakin University, Peter joined CSIRO as a postdoctoral fellow in 2006.

Since then, he has been mainly involved in the development of new cold spray-based applications in areas ranging from printing rollers to marine biofouling and use of digital techniques in robotic metal additive manufacturing.
