Monitoring and closed loop control of metal based additive manufacturing

LORTEK

START: 09/2017

OPEN

OBTAINING DOCTOR DEGREE: 09/2020

Description

Additive metal manufacturing is a maturing technology that has been provoking a degree of interest both in regard to its industrial application and its place as a technology within the industrial 4.0 revolution. Among other key aspects of its development, process control is fundamental in order to guarantee the manufacturing of critical parts, in what regards its application to complex geometry as well as in the introduction and development of new materials.

The research topic focuses on LMD process control to ensure process precision, the absence of internal defects and the possibility of control over the resulting micro-structure.

The doctoral candidate will have to work with a multidisciplinary group, developing a system of control that can be integrated into an LMD manufacturing cell.

We offer the possibility of learning additive manufacture, laser and metallurgy processes applied to LMD, and advanced control systems, including those based in artificial intelligence models.
