3D Printing Trainings for professionals

From 3D Printing Training BASIC to PILOT PROJECT

3D Printing Training BASIC


The BASIC training provides a deep dive into the technology, from understanding the process and material properties to the process chain and design guidelines. It builds upon the online learning courses and offers participants the possibility to discuss questions and dive deeper into selected topics.

3D Printing Training DESIGN


The DESIGN workshop consists of the BASIC module and a subsequent design workshop. Its aim is to transfer selected customer components from screening into additive concepts. The result are 3D printing concepts.

3D Printing Training PILOT PROJECT

Pilot Project

The PILOT PROJECT includes the BASIC training, an internal screening for 3D Printing and the DESIGN workshop. Subsequently, a selected design is transferred to CAD data, printed and post processed to the finished part. A detailed final report rounds off the PILOT PROJECT.

3D Printing Training BASIC to teach the fundamentals

Our BASIC training aims to educate engineers and technical staff. The imparted knowledge builds upon the basics of the technology trained in the Online Learning modules, but also the material properties and design guidelines. The training documents serve as a reference work for design engineers and other engineers in the company. The lessons learned from our 3D Printing training are based on more than 10 years of experience in 3D Printing.

3D Printing training DESIGN to evaluate and discuss your parts

The DESIGN training builds on the BASIC Training. The basis is customer components, which were previously selected by the participants. In a first step, the requirements of the components are defined. Subsequently, creative methods are applied to develop solution concepts for 3D Printing. These lead to a design concept, which is subsequently evaluated. In the final step, the complete production process chain for 3D Printing is set up and the costs for the newly developed concept are estimated.

The 3D Printing training PILOT PROJECT as the complete package

The PILOT PROJECT builds on the BASIC Training and the DESIGN Workshop. Following the training of the fundamentals of  3D Printing, the participants’ own components will be further developed into concepts for additive manufacturing. In the PILOT PROJECT, these components are then converted into a CAD design and the data is created for production. This component is manufactured as a prototype and accompanied by the process chain to the ready-to-install component or to the complete assembly. The PILOT PROJECT results will be summarized in a final report and presented to the company management together with the project team.

3D Printing training Binder Jetting - Full process chain

Metal Binder Jetting is one of the most promising metal 3D Printing technologies with a high potential for low cost and high-volume digital manufacturing. However, the complete process chain of Binder Jetting is highly complex and the supply chain is still developing. AMPOWER created a unique binder jetting training course in cooperation with the FRAUNHOFER IAPT in Hamburg. Participants will learn the theoretical basics accompanied by a comprehensive hands-on session through the complete process chain.
