Lockheed Martin presents case study for large-scale titanium DED

Stop in and/or stay for the lecture!

Beginning at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 14, Brian Rosenberger from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics will be available in the CoorsTek atrium (1523 Illinois St.) along with a large-scale titanium part fabricated using the directed energy deposition (DED) method of additive manufacturing. He will give a lecture at 6:00 pm for the Intro to Additive Manufacturing course – all are welcome to attend. Lecture will be held in CoorsTek atrium.

DED is an emerging use for metal additive manufacturing (AM) as a substitute for die forging of large titanium components. The hybrid process (AM + machining) has the potential to offer significant reductions in both cost and lead time for these components. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company has worked through most of the hurdles to production implementation of this technology, and Mr. Rosenberger will show an example part and describe the engineering development work to date.

Brian Rosenberger has worked in the aerospace industry for over 34 years. He has considerable experience in the aircraft conceptual design arena and has served as principal investigator and program manager for a variety of research and development projects. Since 1997, he has focused his efforts on the maturation of AM processes and materials for aerospace applications. He has extensive experience with large-scale metal AM. Mr. Rosenberger also has expertise in integrating advanced technologies into the supply chain, especially with international production partners. He holds 13 US patents.

ADAPT welcomes 3D Systems and Lithoz America

ADAPT’s two newest members include 3D Systems and Lithoz America.

3D Systems is a global 3D solutions provider founded in 1983 by Chuck Hull, the inventor of 3D printing. With advanced hardware, software and materials, they offer a full spectrum of services from digitization, design and simulation through manufacturing, inspection and management to customers in diverse industries.

Lithoz specializes in the development and production of materials and additive manufacturing systems for 3D printing high-performance ceramics. Their system produces components that meet the high demands of density, stability and precision required by the ceramics industry and ceramic research.

Earlier this year, ADAPT welcomed into membership Boeing, a leader in aerospace, and ALD NanoSolutions, a Colorado native that specializes in atomic layer deposition. We are excited by our continued growth with companies both big and small across industrial sectors!

“HIP for AM” Dinner & Learn hosted by Quintus Technologies

Want to learn how High Pressure Heat Treatment is the enabler for advancements in additive manufacturing technology?

Join us on October 10th at 4:00pm the Table Mountain Inn for a dinner and learn event hosted by Quintus Technologies in partnership with ADAPT and Colorado School of Mines. The Dinner and Learn will include a presentation from Quintus Technologies Application Specialist, Magnus Ahlfors. The presentation will be focused on advanced high-pressure heat treatments used for additively manufactured materials. We look forward to presenting and discussing current post processing and High Pressure Heat Treatment trends in the world of Additive Manufacturing. Topics that will be discussed:

  • Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) for Additive Manufacturing
  • The benefits of HIP and High Pressure Heat Treatment
  • Real case studies on HIP:ing

The event is free, but registration is required to attend. Space is very limited!


This event is not limited to ADAPT members—please feel free to share this with a colleague!
