The two-part course will first introduce metal AM processes, including design and fabrication challenges and potential sources for variability. In the second part of the course, there will be an in-depth discussion of the AWS D20.1/D20.1M standard, Specification for Fabrication of Metal Components using Additive Manufacturing. This standard delivers comprehensive requirements for the design, qualification, fabrication, and inspection of metal AM components.
Attendees will earn 3 PDHs or 0.3 CEUs upon completion of the sessions and passing a quiz.
- Explain the basics of metal additive manufacturing processes.
- Understand the potential sources of quality variability in the fabrication of metal AM components.
- Apply the AWS D20.1 standard to the qualification and fabrication of metal components.
Each live webinar is composed of 2, 1.5 hour sessions taking place from 1-2:30 PM EST spreading across 2 days on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
September 22 – 23
October 20 – 21
Jessica Coughlin has spent the past fifteen years supporting the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program as an employee at the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, where she holds the title of Advisor Engineer. Jessica has utilized her Materials Science and Engineering degrees (B.S. – University of Illinois, M.S. – University of Pittsburgh) as a foundation for becoming a subject matter expert in welding engineering and additive manufacturing (AM).
She has recently been focusing on fundamental research in support of the generation of quality standards for rapidly advancing metal AM technologies. In her position as vice-chair of the American Welding Society D20 committee on additive manufacturing, she played a pivotal role in the creation of a pioneering AM standard, AWS D20.1/D20.1M/2019, Specification for Fabrication of Metal Components using Additive Manufacturing. Jessica is currently serving as chair of the AWS D20 committee.
Aluminum Welding for Fabricators, Inspectors, & Engineers
This live webinar covers all aspects of aluminum welding, with a focus on weldment design, fabrication, and inspection. The webinar also takes a detailed look at how to properly qualify aluminum welding procedures and personnel.
WPS, PQR, WQTR and Other Acronyms
This webinar provides an introduction to essential welding documents, including how to write and qualify WPSs and their supporting PQRs. It also covers the qualification of welders and welding operators.
This online course provides a comprehensive overview of welding procedure specifications (WPS) and their supporting procedure qualification records (PQR).
