Dr. Chris Rock
Research Associate Professor, Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics
University of West Bohemia, Faculty of Mechanicla Engineering, Regional Technological Institute
Miroslav Zetek is focused on the problematic of metal additive manufacturing more than six years. He works at research centre Regional Technological Institute on Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. in Pilsen. During this time he and his team solved a lot of national and international projects in this area. Their intensive work generates a lot of new knowledge’s which are transferred into the articles and applicated outputs as patents or proven technologies. At the same time, these knowledge’s are used in teaching students of the faculty. For the research and commercial cooperation, the two middle machines are used and on of them is equipped in-situ monitoring systems – powder bed monitoring, OT systems and Meltpool system. For teaching the small machine is used on Department of Machining Technology.
Useful Properties of 3D Printed Parts Produced by DMLS technology
I got my PhD at Mondragon Unibertsitatea in 2003 and my MSc in Materials Engineering at EPFL in 1997. In 2003 I started as a researcher and lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering of Mondragon Unibertsitatea. My research focuses on the energy dissipation and damage tolerance of composites (thermosetting and thermoplastic matrix, bio-composites, sandwich structures, fibre/metal hybrid laminates) manufactured by pultrusion, RTM, forging, 3D printing, and cured with UV, microwaves, or IR. I collaborate with companies from the sport, automotive, civil engineering, and capital goods sectors. I am the co-author of more than 50 papers published in prestigious journals with more than 100 co-authors
