Boeing is building Australian industry knowledge about how to commercialise additive manufacturing technologies through a series of virtual events commencing on 21 October.

Spurred by feedback from a series last year, the two-hour webinars will focus on certification, qualification, innovation, and opportunities for growth and collaboration in the additive manufacturing field.

Boeing Additive Manufacturing vice president, Melissa Orme said: “We’re bringing together the best of Boeing from across the globe as well as experts from industry, suppliers, technology vendors, research organisations and universities to support the growth of Australia’s additive manufacturing industry for aerospace and space applications.”

The events will be held over three consecutive weeks, with the first webinar covering additive manufacturing in aerospace, digital additive manufacturing at Boeing, additive manufacturing of aerospace components, certification of additive manufactured parts for aviation and the future of additive manufacturing for Boeing.

Orme said: “With discussions ranging from the how to achieve repeatability and reliability, to the application of digital twins to simulation and modelling, substantiated by actual use cases, the first event will provide pragmatic information for Australian additive manufacturers looking to enter the defence industry and access global supply chains.”

The second event will feature representatives from the Defence Science and Technology Group, small to medium enterprises and academia presenting from the perspective of primes, suppliers, customers and research and development labs; with the final session culminating in discussions about how Australian industry can with work with primes to commercialise their additive manufacturing technologies.
