KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Prof Milan Brandt
Professor, School of Engineering, Manufacturing, Materials and Mechatronics
Dr. Milan Brandt is Professor in Advanced Manufacturing in the School of Engineering, Technical Director Advanced Manufacturing Precinct and Director
Centre for Additive Manufacturing, RMIT University, Melbourne Australia. Professor Brandt is the leading Australian researcher in the area of macro
machining with lasers and has conducted work over the last 30 years in laser cladding, cutting, drilling, welding and more recently additive manufacturing.
This has resulted in technological achievements, patents, research papers and commercial products, which have been recognized internationally and
nationally in both scientific and industrial circles. He co-authored the first paper, published in Acta Materialia in 2015, detailing the in-situ
decomposition of martensite during SLM manufacture of Ti64. The paper has now attracted some 100 citations. He also led the team that designed
and manufactured the first additively manufactured titanium spinal disc implanted into an Australian patient in 2015. His book published in 2016
by Elsevier titled Laser Additive Manufacturing: Materials, Design, Technologies and Applications has now sold over 700 copies globally.
Professor Brandt is an executive member and fellow of LIA, honorary fellow of WTIA and Professorial Fellow department of Medicine, Melbourne University.
He is also the senior editor of the Journal of Laser Applications. In 2018 he takes on the presidency of Laser Institute of America for 12 months.
The association is the largest organisation devoted to the promotion of lasers and applications globally.
