Suchana Akter Jahan

Graduate Research Assistant, Purdue University

I am a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. My research interest lies in Design for manufacturing, Optimization and Additive Manufacturing. I am originally from Bangladesh and I came to the United States in 2014 for my MS degree. Since then I have been working to implement additive manufacturing in traditional industrial processes. I am someone who likes to think from the industry perspective and apply my expertise in design to obtain a practical, efficient and user friendly solution.

Tell Us Something Interesting:

I am currently working in design of injection molding tools with the use of additive manufacturing. We are trying to redesign the existing tools with better cooling performance, and longer life cycle, in addition to lower life cycle cost!

DEC38CA - Potentials of 3D Printing in The Manufacturing Industry Today: Applications in Injection Molding

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a global buzzword today. Often referred to by its far more sensational-sounding description of 3D printing, additive manufacturing is in fact a technology which has been around for at least three decades. It has quite tremendous potential to be used in so many varieties of sectors. Recent advances in this technology have seen its use become far more widespread and it offers exciting possibilities for future development. At present, people are mostly using this for prototyping and initial testing purposes. But it is very important to consider its potential in other areas in manufacturing, for example in tool making. Our research shows the use of additive manufacturing can bring positive changes in the injection molding industry with high performance molds. This presentation will showcase a case study that Purdue University is working on in collaboration with some of their industrial partners, driven by innovation and efficiency to achieve an optimum solution.
