Abstract null null Part integration is to integrate parts to be a fabrication and assembly unit. It can effectively reduce the fabrication and assembly unit quantity of a product and has been deemed as an effective way to promote the productivity of manufacturing. Although additive manufacturing (AM) has great potential to further promote the part integration for any product (assembly) model, part integration works using AM at present are often ad hoc, human-dependent and time-consuming. One mai...

Abstract null null The investigation aims to clarify the influence of scan parameters on the morphology and phase constitution of CoAl2O4 inoculants in Inconel 718 (IN718) superalloy processed by selective laser melting (SLM). Gas atomized IN718 powder feedstock was uniformly blended with 0.2 wt% of CoAl2O4 flakes and processed with a range of laser scan parameters to understand the effect of the inoculant additions on microstructure. Similar to the reactions observed in investment cast Ni-super...

Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) has revolutionized the local production realization of highly customizable items. However, the high process complexity - inherent to AM operations - renders uncertain the quality performance of the final products. Consequently, there is often a need to assess the unique fabrication capabilities of AM against the reoccurring issues of process instability and end-product inconsistency. Improvement opportunities may be identified by empirically exploring the com...

ABSTRACT A current evaluation of the building industry shows a very low efficiency regarding material use as well as a low level of automation in production and construction. With the industry additionally facing a scarcity of skilled workers in mechanical engineering and construction a development towards automated production processes has been noticeable. With concrete being the main construction material used worldwide this paper will concentrate on the state of the art in automated precast c...

Abstract null null Additive manufacturing (AM), especially powder bed laser sintering (PBLS), has been an increasingly popular field since the 1980s. Direct SLS is particularly challenging with ceramic materials due to their low thermal conductivity, high melting point, and brittle mechanical behaviour. In addition, they require longer processing times for a reliable sintering degree. In this work, the impact of some crucial parameters in SLS applied to a copper-doped hydroxyapatite bioceramic w...

Abstract null null Catalysis, a driving force of the chemical industry is increasingly being influenced by additive manufacturing. The link between them is based on the need to intensify catalytic processes in order to make them more efficient and sustainable. Additive manufacturing can satisfy such a need, generating devices with an advanced design, easy production, and great adaptation, in addition to their catalytic functionality. The exponential growth of examples reported on the application...
