MADE-3D in USA – Outcomes from WAMS24 and TMS 2024

March 15, 2024
Ida Berglund, managing director of QuesTek and John Aristeidakis, Materials Design Engineer, at TMS 2024

John, representing Questek, a key partner of the MADE-3D project, attended and presented advancements in additive manufacturing at two prestigious conferences: the 2024 Worldwide Advanced Manufacturing Symposium for Space, Air and Land Transportation (WAMS24) and the TMS 2024 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. These events, held in Orlando, Florida, USA, provided platforms for professionals across various disciplines to exchange knowledge and explore the latest developments in manufacturing technology.

At WAMS24, John presented “Computational Design Framework for Functionally Graded Materials Advancing Multi-material Additive Manufacturing for Space Applications.” His presentation focused on disseminating recent findings from the MADE-3D initiative, particularly in the development of functionally graded materials tailored for space applications. John’s talk attracted significant interest from the audience, leading to engaging discussions and new connections within the additive manufacturing community. He received positive feedback regarding MADE-3D’s activities, particularly in multi-material joining, emphasizing its importance for future industry developments. John also had the opportunity to interact with representatives from ESA, NASA, and other space industry stakeholders, discussing the future prospects of advanced manufacturing for space applications.

Continuing his efforts to advance additive manufacturing, John presented “ICME Framework Advancing Multi-material Additive Manufacturing” at TMS 2024. His presentation highlighted the integration of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) principles into additive manufacturing processes, aiming to advance the development of multi-material components. John disseminated recent MADE-3D results, receiving positive feedback from the audience and affirming the significance of collaborative research efforts. Additionally, he also had the opportunity to attend lectures and have engaged in discussions with experts on additive manufacturing and multi-material, gaining valuable insights into the challenges and potential solutions in dissimilar metals joining.

By participating in these conferences and sharing insights with his colleagues, John contributes to the ongoing dialogue surrounding the advancement of additive manufacturing technologies and materials science. Through collaborative endeavors and continuous innovation, Questek and the MADE-3D consortium are poised to drive transformative changes in the field, shaping the future of manufacturing.
