Do you want to learn about the extended flexibility now available for EBM processes? Do you want to create fully unbound beam scanning strategies?
By utilizing the unique capabilities to rapidly change beam power and position, EBM offers the potential to tailor and optimize microstructures, hence the performance of various material systems. With the possibility to create fully free scan strategies, it will be possible to develop and optimize microstructural control even further; something that facilitates added flexibility in material and process development.
In this webinar you will learn more about EBM Research Mode, what the possibilities are and what it contains. Subjects covered are:
- EBM Research Mode functionality and content
- How you can utilize the full potential and freedom with EBM Research Mode
- How EBM Research Mode can assist your accelerated material development to create unique material properties
- How to visualize your scan strategy before even going to the machine
- A live demonstration of all features
- A demonstrator case where optimized scanning strategies have been used
Joakim Ålgårdh holds the position of senior product manager within the GE Additive team. In his role Joakim is responsible for the GE Additive EBM Q10plus platform, a well-recognized system in the AM community that was originally released 2013. Joakim is also responsible for the EBM Research offerings, both from a hardware and software perspective.
Joakim has more than 13 years of experience with EBM, both with GE Additive and as a customer and researcher on the technology. He joined GE Additive in 2019 as EBM external research lead, responsible for all external research activities related to EBM within GE Additive. He coordinated research projects in collaborations with universities, institutes and industries in Europe and USA.
Prior to joining GE, Joakim was a business developer and senior researcher at the Metals Research Institute in Sweden (SWERIM), where he was responsible the institute’s EBM research. In this role he worked with both Swedish and European industry to advance the utilization of EBM in industrial environments. Joakim also worked at Arcam, before the company was integrated into the GE Additive family.
Joakim holds a master’s degree in materials engineering from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, and a PhD in materials science, focus on EBM, from Uppsala University, Sweden.
