(refreshments from 1.30pm in C foyer)

The talk gives a general overview on the research activities of AMP Lab in the field of advanced processing, focusing on the work branching into various applications within recent years. The application of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies by AMP Lab has progressed beyond structural materials, into AM of functional and smart structures. In the medical field, a number of projects are on-going focusing on the use of AM to develop low modulus Ti-alloys for bone replacement and implants, drug-delivering implants, and customised lower extremity stents. In quantum metrology, the utility of AM is being explored in printing soft magnetic materials, showing the ability of the process to tailor the magnetic shielding characteristics to maximise the performance of the quantum sensors. Additional applications in other exotic applications will be presented, including components for fusion energy, aero-engines, motorsport, defence, space thrusters, low thermal expansion alloys, microwave guides, and thermal management devices will also be presented. The talk highlights the key opportunities in AM in both understanding the complex physics of the process through experimentation and modelling, as well as the generation of novel applications.
