In-Situ Process Mapping using Thermal Quality Signatures™ during Additive Manufacturing with Titanium Alloy Ti-6Al-4V

The current study was designed with three experimental purposes in mind:  1) establish a material specific process map using in-situ Thermal Quality Signatures™ and ex-situ physical property data; 2) draw a one-to-one correlation between in-situ dependent data quality metrics and ex-situ dependent data property metrics; and 3) set the stage for closing the loop by affording the opportunity to self-correct the process in real time.

Evaluation of Quality Signatures™ using In-Situ Process Control during Additive Manufacturing with Aluminum Alloy AlSi10Mg

This build was designed to establish a correlation between in-process dependent data mined from in-situ sensor raw traces signals, independent process input variables for example laser power, and post-process dependent data measured during destructive metallographic testing for porosity of as-built specimens.

Towards rapid qualification of powder-bed laser additively manufactured parts

Qualification of aerospace components is a long and costly process involving material properties, material specifications, manufacturing process, and design among others. Reducing qualification time and cost while maintaining safety offers a large economic advantage and enables faster response to the market demands.
