Tune into the SAE International Podcast Series on SAE.org.
Aerospace and automotive platform, system, and component makers are among the top users of additive manufacturing technologies, which largely are complementing rather than replacing existing manufacturing systems and methods. Driving the demand in mobility markets, additive manufacturing enables:
- high-strength, lightweight construction;
- design and fabrication flexibility;
- less waste material and energy conservation;
- high-performance construction processes and materials;
- design-driven construction;
- production of complex geometries/structures that are stable, strong, and lightweight; and
- cost-effective, on-demand, low-volume production, as well as full-batch production.
The SAE International Podcast Series focuses on critical topics in mobility engineering and features a growing library of interviews with industry exports and scholars. Tune in to the first two episodes of the SAE International Podcast Series on Advanced Manufacturing, featuring subject-matter experts Adam Ricard of LAI International and Dr. John Hart of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Transforming Mobility Development with Additive Manufacturing
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Dr. John Hart explores the advantages of adopting additive manufacturing into production environments and workflows.
Dr. John Hart is Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Director of the Laboratory for Manufacturing and Productivity, Director of the Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT) at MIT. His research group, the Mechanosynthesis Group, aims to accelerate the science and technology of advanced manufacturing in areas including additive manufacturing, nanostructured materials, and the integration of computation and automation in process discovery.
How Additive Manufacturing is Driving the Factory of the Future
Additive Manufacturing Director Adam Ricard shares the positive impact of adopting additive manufacturing at LAI International, the world’s first NADCAP-accredited additive manufacturing supplier.
Adam Rivard is Additive Manufacturing Engineer at LAI International, the world’s first NADCAP-accredited additive manufacturing supplier for aerospace., defense, industrial, and medical applications. He serves on the leadership team for the SAE International committee on Additive Manufacturing and is the Chairman of the Processes subcommittee. Prior to LAI Rivard was the Technology Manager for the Additive Manufacturing Group at Pratt & Whitney.
