The NSERC/CFI HI-AM Network has been conceived to work on innovative solutions to address the challenges associated with metal AM processes/products and to equip Canada for the era of Industry 4.0 and “digital-to-physical conversion."
All HI-AM Network participants meet once a year to present their research findings to the other research teams within the Network and the representatives of our industrial partners. Hosted by a different institution each year, the conference provides a great networking opportunity for the graduate students and PDFs to get to know their colleagues – future additive manufacturing experts of Canada!
The research program proposed by HI-AM includes 4 themes with objectives directly relevant to the research needs of our partner organizations and the research scopes proposed by NSERC in its strategic target areas. These integrative and multidisciplinary research themes include: (1) Material Development, (2) Advanced process modeling, (3) Process monitoring and control, (4) Innovative processes and products.
