The EPMA has made available online videos and pdfs to help students learn more about the steel feedstocks used in producing AM parts.

The online course will cover the following topics:

  • The effects of micro-alloying, relating grain refinement to mechanical properties
  • AM conditions for a certain part taking into account the material ability for AM
  • Carbon equivalent (CE), t 8/5 concept and preheating temperature
  • Hardenability and maximum cooling rate
  • Types of heat treatments requirements for a certain part, inferring the heat treatment conditions.

The videos are:
