Development of Metal Additive Manufacturing for Naval Shipbuilding
December 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
The benefits of metal additive manufacturing (AM) are well documented in the medical and aerospace industries, where high-value, complex designs often find success. The naval shipbuilding industry also has an immense opportunity to impact timely delivery of quality hardware using Metal AM. As one example, HII’s Newport News Shipbuilding division anticipates up to 75 percent reduction in lead times and lowered inventory costs by switching over historically difficult CuNi30 castings to a qualified laser powder bed fusion material and process.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
- AM technologies for the shipbuilding industry
- The need for suitable AM marine alloys
- The qualification path for AM parts in naval shipbuilding
- Example application focus areas in shipbuilding
