  1. 1. Crucial Parameters for Additive Manufacturing of Metals : A Study in Quality Improvement

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Lina Berglund; Filip Ivarsson; Marcus Rostmark; [2019]
    Keywords : Additive manufacturing; Production parameters; Sandvik; Quality improvement; Selective laser melting; Powder bed fusion; Process control;

    Abstract : Production by Additive Manufacturing creates opportunities to make customized products in small batches with less material than in traditional manufacturing. It is more sustainable and suitable for niche products, but entails new production demands to ensure quality. READ MORE

  2. 2. EB-PBF additive manufacturing of Alloy 718 : Effect of shot peening on surface characteristics and high temperature corrosion performance

    University essay from Högskolan Väst/Avdelningen för Industriell ekonomi, Elektro- och Maskinteknik

    Author : Venkataramanan Mohandass; [2019]
    Keywords : Alloy 718; additive manufacturing; electron beam-powder bed fusion; surface engineering; shot peening; high temperature corrosion;

    Abstract : There is an upsurge of research interest on Alloy 718 additively manufactured (AM) by electron beam powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) technique in aero and land-based gas turbine engines. However, the surface quality of the manufactured components has always been a major challenge. READ MORE

  3. 3. FrankZlicer : Direct slicing using arcs

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för data- och systemvetenskap

    Author : Johan Franzén; [2019]
    Keywords : FDM; Additive Manufacturing; 3D-printing; CAM; STEP; G-Code; Arc; Slicer;

    Abstract : 3D printing a CAD modelnormally requires conversion into a polygon mesh, usually an STL-file, in orderto be able to load the model in the slicer. This conversion destroys roundsurfaces and replaces them with flat surfaces. Slicing a polygon mesh resultsin one or more polygons, consisting of a number of straight lines. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prototype manufacturing of microwave components using plastic 3D printing

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Fasta tillståndets elektronik

    Author : Björn Malmquist; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The ability to easily customize and produce specialized MW-components for research and industry is a real challenge and the need is identified, as standardized parts have limited use and can limit design freedom. This study aims at exploring if there are simple ways to manufacture rectangular X-band waveguides with operating frequency of 8-12GHz with novel polymer additive manufacturing and chemical metal deposition that can match Computer Numerical Control (CNC) manufactured rectangular metal waveguides in performance.

  5. 5. Investigation on Filament Extrusion of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) for Fused Deposition Modeling

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap; Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för ekonomi, teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Wang Zicheng; Mohammad Nouri; [2019]
    Keywords : Filament Extrusion; Thermoplastic Elastomer; Fused Deposition Modeling;

    Abstract : This thesis is an investigation of the TPE filament for Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) manufacturing method. All the investigations aim to optimize the quality of the filament in order to make Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) material possible for FDM manufacturing method. READ MORE
