North Carolina State University was the host to the the Second ASPE Topical Meeting on Achieving Precision Tolerances in Additive Manufacturing.  Located on the Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University, the James B. Hunt, Jr. Library was the sight of the technical and poster presentations. Featuring the latest technological advances and the bookBot, an automated book delivery system, the Hunt Library opened in January 2013 and has been named one of the most spectacular libraries in the world by the San Francisco Chronicle.

This series of Topical Meetings on dimensional accuracy and surface finish is crucial to putting additive manufacturing (AM) onto the factory floor. Following are the topics highlighted during this 3 day Meeting:

  • Dimensional Accuracy and Surface Finish
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Heat Treatment for Achieving Dimensional Tolerances
  • Secondary Machining, Grinding and Polishing
  • Characterizing the Performance of AM Machines
  • Machine Capabilities and Standards
  • Integrating AM into Manufacturing Processes
  • In situ Process Metrology
  • Metrology of External and Internal Features
