Dr. Ahmed Qureshi leads the Additive Design and Manufacturing Systems (ADaMS) Laboratory at the University of Alberta. ADaMS laboratory is a unique Additive Manufacturing (AM) facility in Canada that specializes in the concurrent design and development of AM materials and equipment. Dr. Ahmed Qureshi has pioneered several additive manufacturing systems and materials systems. His work includes the design and development of plasma transferred arc AM system for AM of Nickel-Tungsten Carbide (Ni-WC) metal-ceramic parts, as well as the design and development of novel 4D ferromagnetic polymer-metal composite material jetting additive manufacturing systems and materials for printing magnets. Dr. Qureshi also has extensive experience in quality assurance and control of mechanical and geometric properties of 3D printing/Additively manufactured parts. Dr. Qureshi’s lab has also designed and developed an 8DOF robotic additive manufacturing cell for multi-degree of freedom large scale additive manufacturing. This state of the art cell utilizes sensor fusion and inline metrology to assure multi-axial 3D printing of Aluminum and Steel Alloys. In addition to manufacturing systems design and development for robotic systems, Dr. Qureshi’s lab has also innovated on digital design and manufacturing chains. This includes the development of algorithms and software for topology optimization, as well as design for additive manufacturing, reverse engineering, and computer-aided path planning.
