HEAT EXCHANGERS AND REACTORS BY METAL AM

Stéphane Abed - polyshape Mr Stéphane ABED
POLYSHAPE

Raphael Faure - Air liquide Mr Raphaël FAURE
AIR LIQUIDE

To improve traditional processes and to better serve customers, it is required today, for many industries, to intensify core processes. Air Liquide is one of these. Together with Poly-Shape, new equipments, heat exchangers and reactors, have been manufactured and first use case for hydrogen production has been done. AM is here an enabler that allow us to develop new equipments that could not be made using traditional forming processes. The parts produced to date are innovative by their size, their complexity and their functions (operating up to 900 ° C under 20 bar of synthesis gas). In addition, they will be the first certified pressure vessels ever made by additive manufacturing. Within the collaborative project ‘FAIR’, supported by Bpifrance, and initiated jointly with Poly-Shape, Air Liquide is leading a consortium of academic (CNRS, Arts et Métiers) and industrial partner, to undertake the development of necessary skills for the design and implementation of these new equipment, intensified in terms of compactness and performances , for aeronautics, defense, chemistry and energy.

INDUSTRIALIZING ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING WITH SIEMENS DIGITAL ENTERPRISE. SUITE SUBTITLE: REIMAGINE PRODUCTS. REINVENT MANUFACTURING. RETHINK BUSINESS

Nicolas SIMON - SIEMENS Mr Nicolas SIMON
JANUS ENGINEERING

Quentin BROUSSARD - SIEMENS Mr Quentin BROUSSARD
SIEMENS PLM

Additive Manufacturing was born in the late eighties of the XXth century and it took many years for technologies to evolve. Subject to technology intelligence for a long time and to limited implementation, 3D Printing has been mainly used for rapid prototyping. Only in 2009, while lots of patents were being filed, Additive Manufacturing has been eventually recognized as a set of revolutionary technologies and expected to dramatically transform the manufacturing processes and to enable the creation of next generation products. Industrialization of Additive Manufacturing started by that time, but an integrated End-to-End solution has been missing to support the global Additive Manufacturing industry. Leading global provider of software solutions to drive the digital transformation of industry, henceforward Siemens offers the most comprehensive end-to-end integrated software system for product development and production with game-changing technologies for Additive Manufacturing industrialization and implementation in your Digital Enterprise.

THE EMERGENCE OF A FRENCH SECTOR FOR LARGE-SCALE METAL ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Olivier ZANDERIGO - NEXTEAM Mr Olivier ZANDERIGO
NEXTEAM

Camille LOCATELLI - PRODWAYS Ms Camille LOCATELLI
PRODWAYS

Metal powder bed AM continues to grow and open up new applications. In parallel with these developments, the more recent emergence of the so-called DED (Direct Energy Deposition) technologies and in particular based on wire technology makes it possible to find new applications in the aeronautics sector, oil & gas, the nuclear and the military sectors for large dimension. The stakes are different, rather oriented towards a reduction of the cost (linked to the quantity of material transformed) and the lead time (vs. tools of forge or foundry) implying also less of re-conception to maximize the functions of the parts. France has all the know-how and an ecosystem ready to break into this field, particularly through the development of Rapid Additive Forging technology.


03:00 - 03:30pm

SYNCHROTRON X-RAY MICROTOMOGRAPHY, A POWERFUL TOOL FOR ADVANCED NDT AND 3D MATERIAL CHARACTERISATION ADAPTED TO ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

Olivier GUIRAUD -  NOVITOM Mr Olivier GUIRAUD
NOVITOM

X-ray microtomography is a powerful imaging technique that has proven to be an effective tool for non-destructive 3D inspection. Nowadays, it is more and more employed as a standard characterisation method in R&D applications as well as a means of control in production line. It can be applied to nearly all kinds of materials and types of parts. The use of X-ray synchrotron sources pushes back the limits of the technology and offers the possibility to inspect at high resolution large parts without cutting them. It provides outstanding image quality and enhanced phase segmentation capability thanks to phase contrast imaging mode. In addition, the high brilliance of sources allows ultra-fast acquisition for the follow-up of process in real time. The presentation will be based on concrete examples such as the rugosity characterisation of surfaces in AM parts inaccessible with conventional techniques, the dimensional control by 3D mapping the geometrical deviation from CAD files, or even the detection and analysis of cracks inside metallic components.


04:00 - 04:30pm

HOW TO REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF A PRODUCT WHICH CONTAINS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PARTS??

Marc HEUDE - Thales Global Services Mr Marc HEUDE
THALES GLOBAL SERVICES

The comparison of the impacts of additive manufacturing (AM) and subtractive manufacturing has shown that AM has advantages only under certain conditions. It does not seem reasonable to invite manufacturers to redesign the parts to be produced in AM for the specific purpose of exploiting these conditions, to the possible detriment of the function or the cost of the parts. The presentation will show the interest of replacing this analytical vision, centered on the impacts of manufacturing, with a global vision in which the technical possibilities of AM are used as a lever for global economic and environmental improvement over the entire life cycle of the product.


09:30 - 10:00am

Luc ECKENFELDER - PRODWAYS CONSEIL Mr Luc ECKENFELDER
PRODWAYS CONSEIL

How to use the full potential of additive manufacturing to create injection molds that allow to quickly have few parts in the right material? Initiatives are numerous, but concrete implementation remains limited to simple cases. In order to remove the constraints, L'Oréal - for whom innovation is a strategic axis - and Prodways / Initial - which has integrated approach to meet this ambitious goal of responsiveness - have decided to collaborate to overcome the current limits and define precisely the scope. The main challenge is to accelerate L'Oréal's capacity for innovation, giving it a competitive advantage, through better use of additive manufacturing.
