Additive Manufacturing Research Group (ADDMAN)


Overview

The Additive Manufacturing Research Group (ADDMAN) was formed in 2008 with the establishment of Rapid Manufacturing Laboratory within the Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). The term “additive manufacturing” has also been adopted by the new ASTM body that is investigating standards and procedures for Additive Manufacturing technologies. Additive manufacturing technologies are used broadly for design, product development and manufacturing. Among the applications are concept modeling, design validation, prototyping for fit and functional testing, patterns for castings, parts for mould and die tooling; fixtures, guides and assembly tooling; and custom, limited edition and short-run production. ADDMAN engages in project ranging from collaborative research to individual short term applications researches, supported directly by additive manufacturing systems vendors and technology users. ADDMAN also provides technology transfer, industrial training and consultancy services to manufacturing companies. Main niche area: Rapid prototyping, tooling and manufacturing
