Abstract: Metal additive manufacturing (AM) has recently seen widespread adoption in the aerospace and defense markets, with some companies integrating the technology as a critical process for future manufacturing programs. Despite the adoption of metal AM by these markets and the long history of polymer rapid prototyping within automotive OEMs, applications in the automotive market for metal AM have been limited to racing and high-performance vehicles. With broad opportunities available for productions vehicles to use metal and polymer AM, this talk will focus on the challenges that remain for AM to scale to the production volumes necessary to enable application in the extremely high volume automotive market.
Biography: Tyson Brown received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from Colorado School of Mines. His graduate work was focused on the chemical and microstructural effects of nitrogen in commercial high strength steel projects. Since joining General Motors Global R&D in 2014, his work has focused on automotive sheet steel, aluminum, and light metals technologies, including additive manufacturing of metal components. He is now part of the team bringing the GM R&D additive manufacturing research laboratory online, with the focus on alloy and process development to broaden the application of metal additive manufacturing to include the automotive market.
