Prof. Ruxu Du

South China University of Technology, China

Speech Title: Resilient Manufacturing System


In the past two years, the favor of world manufacturing environment has been completely changed from globalization to nationalization. As a result, companies large or small will have to face ever increased government regulation, resources restriction and market limitation.  To survive such a harsh environment, companies will have to make their manufacturing system resilient. 
In this talk, we introduced the idea of resilient manufacturing system. It consists of four parts:
  • Innovation and product optimization. Innovation is the engine of the manufacturing and product optimization is necessary for the ever-increasing competition.
  • Manufacturing system modeling and optimization.  This will help to build resilience into the ever-changing world.
  • Alternative manufacturing methods. New technologies, such as 3D printing and incremental forming will help to easy the dependency.

Prof. Zhan Wen Chen

Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand

Speech Title: Solidification Behaviours during Powder-Bed Fusion Metal Additive Manufacturing

Abstract:Metal additive manufacturing (MAM), which is also known as metal 3D printing and is often associated with the so-called fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), is based on building parts of metallic materials track by track and layer by layer. The currently major MAM technology is either laser powder-bed fusion (L-PBF) also known as selective laser melting (SLM) or electron beam powder-bed fusion (EB-PBF) also known as selective electron beam melting.

Speaker 5

Prof. Hamid Assadi

Brunel University London, UK

Head of Virtual Engineering Centre

Speech Title: Modelling of Materials Processes and Microstructure

Abstract:This presentation will give an overview of materials modelling based on the speaker’s activities in this area within the last two decades. The talk will focus on models of microstructure evolution in a selection of materials processes, ranging from rapid solidification of intermetallics to grain boundary segregation during heat treatment of steels.


Speaker 4

Prof. Stefan Dimov

University of Birmingham, UK

Speech Title:System-level Tools for Integrating Metal Additive Manufacturing Technologies in Production Lines

Abstract:The Additive Manufacturing (AM) of metal parts made a significant progress in the last two decades. Especially, there have been significant advances in single-step Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) technology and currently laser-based PBF can be considered the most widely adopted process for metal AM.(Learn More)

Speaker 3

Prof. Joseph ZARKA

MZ Intelligent Systems, France

Speech Title:Big Data: Optimal Design of Woven Composite Materials

Abstract:In 1989, at Ecole Polytechnique (France) with a little team, we started to explore the domain of Artificial Intelligency of Machine Learning as I knew that I don’t know even if many areas I was an expert....(Learn More)

Speaker 2

Prof. Ziad MOUMNI

ENSTA ParisTech, France

Speech Title:Fatigue Analysis of Shape Memory alloys

Abstract:Shape memory alloys (SMAs) exhibit interesting properties when subjected to mechanical or thermal loadings. For instance, they can accommodate large recoverable strains, or recover their shape by simple heating after being inelastically strained....(Learn More)
