In collaboration with Serbian Chamber of Commerce, the Faculty of Mechanical and Civil Engineering in Kraljevo organized a series of workshops for the engineers from Serbian industry with the aim to introduce the engineers to the concepts and advantages of the modern product design technologies. The lecturers at the workshops were the researchers who were seconded within the framework of the A_MADAM project.
The second workshop in the series, entitled “Additive manufacturing” introduced the attendees to the principles and practice of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies. Besides an general discussion of various AM technologies, the workshop focused on selective laser sintering and direct laser metal sintering as the technologies for production of mechanical components and structures. The objective of the workshop was to provide the engineers the basic training in design for AM, and to raise awareness of the availability of the AM. The goal of the workshop is to make AM technologies a more usual tool for industrial and mechanical designers. The workshop lasted for five days, with morning sessions of four lectures and afternoon sessions with practical exercises. It was attended by engineers from 15 companies selected by the Serbian Chamber of Commerce.
During the workshop, on the 15 June 2018, was held a media conference and the short reports were shown in the Serbian national television and on the local TV station from Kraljevo.
