Modelling, inspection, and post-processing of layer-based additive manufacturing surfaces to maintain product quality
Today’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) is mostly layer-based. Despite AM’s great capabilities in fabrication of complex geometries, product’s surface roughness is a limiting factor in many industrial applications. Therefore, ...
Development of an integrated inspection system for additive and subtractive hybrid manufacturing
Using closed-loop inspection systems to modify coordinate metrology tasks for specific engineering applications has been a demanding research subject over the last decade. The objective of this thesis is to develop an ...
Inspection & modelling of cusp geometry in additive manufacturing to predict product’s surface roughness
The final dimensional and geometric inaccuracies, and the resulting high surface roughness of the products have been the major problems in employing Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. Most of commonly used Additive ...
Customized topology optimization for additive manufacturing
One of the biggest limitations of additive manufacturing (AM) is the resulting production times. Due to the layer-based method of material deposition, the time to produce a single part is substantial compared to techniques ...
Integrated topology optimization design and process planning for additive manufacturing
Industry 4.0 demands that the systems and processes in today’s product design and manufacturing not just be automated, but to be robust and containing many feedback mechanisms which enables it to be self-correcting. The ...
Development of a layerless additive manufacturing stereolithography machine to improve surface quality and dimensional accuracy
Stereolithography (SLA) is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) process that has recently gained significant popularity in manufacturing research. The material used in SLA is a photocurable resin. SLA fabrication has conventionally ...
