WFC13 is Getting Closer β Are You In?
WFC13 is getting nearer, with the four-day event opening on April 20, 2020, in San Diego, California. "The World Filtration Congress is among the most important events to the filtration and separations industry," according to Thomas Ramsey, Chair of the Board of Directors of American Filtrations & Separations Society. "There is not another event that brings together a higher calibre of attendee with regard to innovation in our industry, and companies, individuals and nonprofits alike, from every corner of the world, benefit immensely from participating."
A Forum for Industry Professionals
This congress creates a perfect forum for engineers, scientists and practitioners around the globe who work on filtration and separation (F&S) to connect and share their knowledge and experience of the very latest technologies and industry advances. As well as exhibitors and speakers from across the industry, the WCF congress also offers additional trips and a gala dinner for attendees. The congress begins with a selection of twelve four-hour courses on a variety of filtration and separation topics. Industry experts lead all the sessions. As well as receiving certificates of completion and earn CEU credit, attendees will benefit from an exceptional level of expertise. Croft Filters will be attending the event, as well as leading one of the short courses on Additive Manufacturing (AM).
Join Crofts Short Course on Additive Manufacturing
Progressive companies are already embracing additive manufacturing and the benefits it offers. If you are looking to gain a detailed insight into the fundamentals of WFC 13 metal additive manufacturing within the filtration industry, this course is for you. The course is designed to be accessible for potential users of the AM, product designers, and anyone else who has an interest in learning more about the technology. The aim is to provide real knowledge backed with practical experience.
What the Short Course Will Cover
The course is led by Croft Director, Neil Burns, and will cover the process and the development of additive industrial parts, as well as information on Designing for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) and how it differs from conventional design.
Using their expertise and industry case studies, Croft will demonstrate the potential benefits Additive Manufacturing can deliver to the filtration sector and explain how AM is used in wedge wire, woven mesh, perforated plate, filter housings and component parts, as well as a hybrid of conventional manufacturing and AM.>br>
The course will cover: β’ Background to Additive Manufacturing (AM) in different materials β’ A detailed outline of Selective Laser Melting (SLM) β’ Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) β’ Surface finish and build orientation β’ Post-processing and finishing β’ Inherent challenges of Additive Manufacturing β’ Applied Additive Manufacturing within the filtration industry
The Course Objectives
The course aims to provide attendees with an understanding of the fundamental principles and benefits of Additive Manufacturing (AM) relating to filtration, from concept to completion. Delegates will leave the session familiar with the challenges of AM and strategies to overcome them and will see how AM is already being applied in the filtration industry in terms of its use in wedge wire, woven wire mesh, perforated plate, filter housing and component parts as well as in a hybrid mix of conventional and additive manufacturing processes.
