The aim of this school, held prior to the Shaping 7 conference
, was to create a forum that brings together students, professors, and industrialists, going beyond the fundamentals of rheology for ceramic materials by applying them to different additive manufacturing techniques.
There were 65 registered participants from 15 countries (Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, Ukraine).
High quality courses were given during the school by:
• Fabrice Petit (Belgium) – An introduction about Additive Manufacturing Techniques
• Rodrigo Moreno (Spain) - Rheology of ceramic suspensions
• Gary Messing (USA) - Rheology for Additive Manufacturing of Textured Ceramics
• Hélio Jorge (Portugal) – Industrial Projects in Additive Manufacturing - Case study: rheological developments and studies of alumina pastes for robocasting
During the school, a presentation of ECerS and the JECS Trust
was also made by Francis Cambier as well as a presentation of the Young Ceramists Network
by Maria Canillas.
