  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. 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

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. Potential in additive manufacturing of a shaft

    University essay from KTH/Hållfasthetslära (Inst.)

    Author : Daniel Damerji; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D-printing, is the process of joining materials layer by layerfrom a 3D-model data and has several advantages over traditional manufacturing techniques. AM is destinedto change the way products are designed and manufactured in the future. READ MORE

  5. 5. Preparing parts for Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) and net-shape machining

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Isak Koskenniemi; [2019]
    Keywords : Additive manufacturing; AM; Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing; WAAM;

    Abstract : WAAM is a relatively unexplored additive manufacturing method. Although research in this area has been performed for some years and the hardware is relatively cheap, the method is not widely used. As the name suggest, it uses wire and an arc welding equipment to deposit beads on top of each other to create a geometry. READ MORE
