Pre-Conference Workshop: Digital Workflows in AMBernadette Teo2022-10-18T17:12:51+08:00
Intended for key decision makers, managers and technical leads, this workshop will explore Digital Workflow in Additive Manufacturing. Focusing on Laser Powder Bed Fusion, one of the leading 3D Printing technologies for precision metal parts, attendees will learn how to get started in Additive Manufacturing, key criteria in selecting equipment and where to start in identifying which components to migrate to an additive process.
Attendees will also learn about the exciting progress that has been made by Singapore-based research teams, to develop an Integrated Digital Workflow for Additive Manufacturing spanning from part design across the entire manufacturing process chain.

Session 1: Additive Manufacturing: The Real Story
Additive Manufacturing (AM) has, over the years, opened doors for greater engineering opportunities that traditional processes are not suited to tackle.
However, such benefits must be balanced against the caveats that AM bring, in terms of part quality, cost and lead time.
With support from case studies, this session will cover the current state-of-the-art industrial AM practices and at the same time, surface the challenges and barriers to entry.
Jayren Tey is a Senior Development Engineer at the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC), A*STAR. He began as a R&D engineer in the geomatics industry, designing cutting edge instruments for geological surveys for over 5 years. Following this stint, he leapt onto the bandwagon of Industry 4.0 at ARTC, working on digital manufacturing solutions such as Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES). Currently, he is part of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) arm of ARTC, serving as a designer for AM components and a practitioner of industrial AM workflows. Jayren also possesses a master’s degree in Smart Product Design from Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Session 2: Best Practice in AM from Design to Print
This session will explore some of the factors managers need to consider once they have decided to adopt AM as part of their manufacturing capabilities or source AM components for spares or production equipment. Participants will look at some of the considerations which should be made in selecting AM equipment for metal parts and the factors that can help to identify out of a large parts inventory those which will provide the best return on investment in AM.
Olivier Mathey is the Executive Vice President of Sales of Spare Parts 3D, a tech start-up simplifying and decarbonizing the supply chains thanks to Additive Manufacturing. Olivier joined Spare Parts 3D after a 19-year journey in the energy industry occupying various positions from Quality manager to Export Sales to Strategy and being an intrapreneur for the past 10 years coming in Asia to set-up a Business Unit including starting green-field operation. Finally, Olivier led the Digital and Service transformation in Asia before jumping from the intra- to entrepreneurship. Olivier hold a Master’s Degree in Physics at National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble (INPG -France) . Olivier has had a truly international background, working in more than 30 countries in this career and living in Singapore for 9 years.
Lu Zhen is the Application Engineering Manager, Asia Pacific at SLM Solutions Singapore and has been in the industry of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for 9 years with proficiency in various industrial AM systems and software. He has rich theoretical and hands-on experience in the topics of AM, material science, process parameters of laser systems and Design for AM (DfAM) etc. In his current role, he focusses on providing technical solutions to customers and helping them maximise their investment in Metal 3D Printing. Prior to joining SLM Solutions Singapore, he was with Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP) and NTU Additive Manufacturing Centre (NAMC). Lu Zhen received his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and is currently pursuing his part-time PhD at Singapore Centre for 3D Printing (SC3DP), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in the topic of Selective Laser Melting.

Session 3: Digital Workflow Development in Singapore and Beyond
Learn how developments in state-of-the-art digital design and manufacturing-process-simulation is helping to make AM accessible to industry.
Software for the entire AM digital workflow – from topology optimization to process simulation and through the entire process chain – will be demonstrated, ensuring that the final part properties satisfy requirements. New design exploration methods enable designers to explore trade-offs among part quality, cost, and lead time based on the integrated digital workflow.
David Rosen is a Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he is Director of the Rapid Prototyping & Manufacturing Institute. Additionally, he is the Research Director of the Digital Manufacturing & Design Centre at the Singapore University of Technology & Design. He received his Ph.D. at the University of Massachusetts in mechanical engineering. His research interests include computer-aided design, additive manufacturing (AM), and design methodology. Most of his research is focused on design for additive manufacturing, including conceptual design methods, design methods for part-material-process problems, and topology optimization methods. He is a Fellow of ASME and has served on the ASME Computers and Information in Engineering Division Executive Committee. In the standards community, he chairs the ASTM F42 subcommittee on design for additive manufacturing. He is the recipient of the 2013 Solid Freeform Fabrication Symposium, International Freeform and Additive Manufacturing Excellence (FAME) Award and is a co-author of a leading textbook on AM.
Guglielmo Vastola, PMP®, is a Senior Scientist and Project Manager at the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing in Singapore. His experience focuses on modeling and simulations of additive manufacturing, with particular emphasis on selective laser melting, electron beam melting, and selective laser sintering processes for both metallic and plastic industrial components. He graduated in Physics in 2005 at the University of Pavia, Italy, and then obtained his PhD in Materials Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy in 2008 with a thesis on modeling and simulation of self-assembled nanostructures.
He joined the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing in 2009 and was visiting research scholar at the Department of Engineering at Brown University, Providence, RI under the supervision of prof. Vivek Shenoy to work on the assembly of heterogenous materials structures at the nanoscale.
He went to the private sector in 2012 by joining Enermill Renewable Energies, Italy, to work on high-performance solar cells and materials-related problems in additive manufacturing.
In 2014 he returned to the A*STAR Institute of High Performance Computing to work on low-dimensional materials and materials-science problems in additive manufacturing related to the complex interplay between process and microstructure in determining part quality. Through the years, he has had an instrumental role in IHPC’s efforts to develop a in-house multiscale simulation platform for powder-bed fusion and directed energy deposition additive manufacturing, which is used to help the local and global ecosystem of companies to solve their problems and improve their products in additive manufacturing.
