Prof. Huaming Wang, who is the expert in metal additive manufacturing, is born in Hejiang, Sichuan Province on May 6th 1962. He acquired bachelor's degree from Sichuan Institute of Technology (now Xihua University) in 1983, master’s degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 1986 and doctor’s degree from China University of Mining and Technology in 1989. Currently he is a professor in Beihang University, the director of National Engineering Laboratory of Additive Manufacturing for Large Metallic Components, the director of Engineering Research Center of Ministry of Education on Laser Direct Manufacturing for Large Metallic Components, as well as the deputy chairman of China Mechanical Engineering Society Additive Manufacturing Branch.
He long-term engages in the manufacture of large metal components and surface engineering technology research. With his leading, his group breakthrough the basic techniques of additive manufacturing for titanium alloy, ultra-high strength steel and other high performance large complex key metallic components, including additive manufacturing process, complete equipment, and key techniques for engineering application. He also developed new silicide-based coatings which have excellent wear and corrosion resistance under high temperature environment. The achievements have been successfully used as key friction pair in aircraft, rockets, missiles, satellites and aircraft engine, gas turbine and other engineering applications. He published over 200 SCI papers, and won the prize of “national first prize in technological inventions" once, “ministeri
