Lucideon’s upcoming webinar, Validation of Additive Manufactured Components through Specialized Testing, has experts looking at how advanced testing can help in the development of new and improved additive manufactured products. The webinar will be Thursday April 27, 2017 at 10:00am EDT.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is being used in more and more mainstream manufactured products. As with any product it is important to understand how the materials used and the structure of components affect the performance. Specialized testing equipment and custom testing methods can help to establish how products will perform, react with their environment and accelerate the failure mechanisms of products to help understanding and future developments.

Brent Holloway, director of sales and marketing at Lucideon says, “Additive manufacturing has potential to change manufacturing for a number of industries. Some people would go so far as to say that AM will be classified as a new age of manufacturing, a new industrial revolution. But there are still a lot of unknowns with AM and the best way to work those out is by testing, producing accurate data, analyzing, and quickly iterating to improve those products.

“In this webinar, we’ll be discussing a variety of tests and techniques that can help you understand how your materials, processes and component structures are performing in application conditions and how creative test design can correlate design intent with actual performance. At Lucideon we specialize in materials and product development, and we know that the value of powerful analytical testing and expert interpretation is a big part of what keeps the market leaders at the top. For anybody looking to get ahead in the additive manufacturing industry this webinar will be of great value.”
