The global market for additive manufacturing (AM) (sometimes referred to as ‘3D printing’) is expected to grow from $6b (2016) to $26b (2022). Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) additive manufacturing is a form of Additive Manufacturing that fuses powder materials, layer-by-layer, to produce unique and high-quality components from aerospace to biomedical applications. In this talk from materials scientists and AM experts Professor Peter Lee and Dr Chu Lun Alex Leung you will learn how ultrafast X-Ray imaging is used to capture and better understand this cutting-edge manufacturing process.
This talk is part of Spring into STEM, a series of online lectures exploring hot topics across science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The talks are a chance to find out more about the world-changing research taking place in the UCL MechEng department and across the Faculty of Engineering. You’ll hear from academics at the cutting edge of research, and have the chance to ask questions in a lively Q&A.
Presented by: Dr Chu Lun Alex Leung, Dr Peter Lee
About the Speakers
Dr Chu Lun Alex Leung
Lecturer in Imaging of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing at UCL Mech Eng
Chu Lun Alex Leung is Lecturer in Imaging of Advanced Materials and Manufacturing in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London. Leung’s research focuses on the development of intelligent advanced manufacturing using cutting-edge sensing technologies, including “Development of multi-modalities imaging techniques for laser additive manufacturing”.More about Dr Chu Lun Alex Leung
Professor Peter Lee
Professor of Materials Science at UCL Mech Eng
Professor Lee studies Materials Design and Advanced Manufacturing, with a particular focus on the x-ray imaging and computational simulation of materials at a microstructural level. He has pioneered the development of in situ and operando techniques, enabling the design of new materials for processes ranging from the additive manufacturing of aeroengine components to making ice cream. He also pioneered multi-scale and through process modelling (now termed Integrated Computational Materials Engineering or ICME), working with companies such as Rolls-Royce, Ford and Unilever.More about Professor Peter Lee
