30 August–2 September 2020, Osaka, Japan
The 2nd Global Forum on Smart Additive Manufacturing, Design & Evaluation
It is a great pleasure to welcome you, on behalf of the organizing committee, to the 2nd Global Forum on Smart Additive Manufacturing, Design & Evaluation (Smart MADE), to be held at Osaka University Nakanoshima Center in Osaka, Japan, from 30th August to 2nd September 2020, organized by Joining and Welding Research Institute (JWRI), Osaka University.
Additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies are globally recognized as novel fabrication processes for advanced materials and components with multifunctional structures. These technologies offer tremendous potential for design innovations and customization, complex part fabrication, rapid prototyping, and distributed digital manufacturing.
This workshop focuses on superiority of design, efficient processing, and perspicuous evaluations in the additive manufacturing and 3D printing processes. In addition, various topics related to starting materials, characterization tools, nondestructive evaluations and in-situ monitoring of processes, qualification and certification, cost, and applications will also be discussed.
