Advanced Manufacturing Research Symposium

This unique two day virtual event will showcase the research and learning experiences of ORISE interns and fellows funded by AMO and highlight the diverse areas of advanced manufacturing, including energy storage, high performance computing, renewable energy, robotics, science technology and policy, innovation and more.

Scheduled topics will include a mix of research-focused traditional style presentations and Ignite Talks, 5-minute fast-paced, visual-centric talks. In addition to featuring ORISE interns and fellows, this event will spotlight national laboratories engaging in advanced manufacturing research and development as well as panel discussions to learn more about AMO, the ORISE experience, and available opportunities for career growth.

The following will be featured over the course of the event:

 

  • Spotlight Presentation Sessions, These sessions will highlight the capabilities and processes that distinguish laboratories in the field of advanced manufacturing. Speakers from national laboratories across the country will share what sets their lab apart and showcase their accomplishments in the areas of advanced manufacturing research and development, policy and innovation.
  • Participant and Alumni Experience Career Panel, We will be joined by current participants and alumni to discuss how their participation in an ORISE opportunity better prepared them for their future careers. The panelists each hold a unique perspective on different ORISE programs and organizations in a variety of fields, including some who have leveraged their experience in an ORISE program to propel them into successful federal careers.
  • Opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing, This session will feature available opportunities in advanced manufacturing, including an overview of available ORISE and other AMO-sponsored internships and fellowships.

 


Presenters and Panelists

Spotlight Presentations

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF)

  • Speaker: Michael Borish
  • Presentation Topic: Next-Generation Pathing and Visualization for Industrial Additive Manufacturing
    • Synopsis: This presentation will provide a brief overview of the MDF with a focus on the development of the next generation of software for industrial additive manufacturing. This software focus will primary be on front-end development initiatives: ORNL Slicer 2.0 and augmented reality (SAMARAI). This will also include related research that covers various projects of interest enabled as a result of this software development.
  • Bio: Dr. Michael Borish is an associate staff member at ORNL’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility (MDF) having joined in 2017. At the MDF, he engages in a wide range of disciplines within Computer Science as they relate to industrial additive manufacturing. This research encompasses visualization, augmented reality, path planning, and computer vision, to name a few. He hopes to expand the boundaries of what we define as manufacturing technology. He is also interested in altering established paradigms of operation particularly as it relates to slicing and path planning.

Argonne National Laboratory

  • Speaker: Sam Clark
  • Presentation Topic: Towards defect free laser additive manufacturing using high-speed X-ray characterization
    • Synopsis: Laser powder bed fusion (LBPF) is transforming modern advanced manufacturing with applications from hip replacements to rocket engines. However, the true potential to LBPF is yet to be fully harnessed as the mechanical properties of built components are diminished by the presence of defects such as pores. At the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory, we have developed a LBPF process replicator to which enables us to see into the heart of the process, understand the underlying physics and determine processing routes to mitigate defects and optimize the microstructure. Multi-modal X-ray characterization available at the APS allows us to monitor the process with X-ray imaging at up to 5 million frames a second as well as to characterize the evolution of phase and strain using high X-ray diffraction at hundreds to one kilohertz range.
  • Bio: Sam Clark is a Beamline Scientist at the Advanced Photon Source at the Argonne National Laboratory where he works at the 32-ID,B,C ultra-high-speed imaging beamline. His principal field of research is in the in-situ characterization of additive manufacturing processes.

ORISE Program Spotlight

Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs (LEEP) Innovation Crossroads

  • Speaker: Dan Miller, Manager, Industrial Partners and Economic Development
  • Presentation Topic: Innovation Crossroads: An early-stage entrepreneurial fellowship program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory

    • Synopsis: Innovation Crossroads matches entrepreneurs with experts, mentors, and networks in technology related fields to take their world-changing idea from R&D to marketplace. Participants receive access to experienced business mentors, entrepreneurial training programs, and exclusive networking opportunities. Innovators are also exposed to a wide range of leaders from academia, industry, government, and finance that can serve as advisors and partners.

Participant and Alumni Panel

  • Moderator: Anne Hampson, Alumni and Technical Partnerships Program Manager, Department of Energy - Advanced Manufacturing Office
  • Bio: Anne Hampson currently serves as the program manager for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) Technical Partnership programs, which support the development and validation of technologies and practices to increase the productivity and competitiveness of American manufacturers and other large energy-using facilities. The five core programs that Ms. Hampson oversees are the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Deployment Program, Better Plants, ISO 50001, Industrial Assessment Centers, and Technologist in Residence.

    Before joining AMO, Ms. Hampson was a resilience fellow at the Federal Energy Management Program where she focused on tool development and stakeholder outreach related to energy and water resilience. Ms. Hampson also spent over 15 years at ICF focused on distributed generation and CHP, where she led a team focused on CHP technology assessment, market potential, and regulatory/policy considerations.
