This 6th in the series of joint Special Interest Group meeting between euspen and ASPE on Advancing Precision in Additive Manufacturing is crucial to putting additive manufacturing onto the factory floor.  We are seeking papers in the following categories:

1. Dimensional accuracy and surface finish from additive manufacturing (AM)

  • State-of-the-art – What level of precision is achievable?…and what developments are underway?…or are needed?
  • Functional specifications for form and finish
  • Prediction & modeling of dimensional errors and surface topography
  • Developments in fabricating lattice structures with high strut integrity

2. Design for Precision

  • Design rules & tolerancing for additive manufacturing
  • Topology optimization in the context of AM and achieving precision
  • Novel designs for flexures or kinematic couplings

3. Designing and Characterizing AM machines

  • In situ process monitoring, e.g. melt-zone temp, powder bed
  • In-process measurement of workpiece shape and topography
  • Using artifacts to assess machine performance; round-robin testing
  • Holistic views of the control system, process feedback, correction

4. Standards

  • Certifying AM equipment capabilities
  • Industrial demands for ASTM and ISO standards

5. Integrating AM into a holistic manufacturing process

  • Cost-benefit trade-offs of using AM within a complex process chain
  • Engineered partnerships between AM & secondary finishing
  • Dealing with residual stress and heat treatment in a process flow
  • Kinematic tooling or pallets for repeatable part handling

6. Metrology

  • Surface topography measurements on rough contoured surfaces
  • Dimensional metrology of internal features using computed tomography
  • Multi-sensor approaches, data fusion, and machine learning
  • Complex form measurement, registration and fitting
  • Measurement of 3D latttice strut dimensional accuracy


The meeting will incorporate half a day of presentations from PAM^2 (Precision Additive Metal Manufacturing).

Advancing Metrology in Additive Manufacturing: Highlights from NIST

 

Broader industry adoption of metals-based additive manufacturing (AM) is inhibited by lack of consistent quality in produced parts, precursor materials, and the fabrication process itself. Overcoming these challenges and progressing towards the goal of more rapid qualification and certification relies on the development of adequately precise and appropriately conducted measurements. This talk reviews the Measurement Science for Additive Manufacturing program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and how NIST aims to develop or improve these measurements. Certain specific metrological questions or challenges are posed pertaining to characterization of AM materials, machines, processes, or parts. Multiple examples of highlights and developments from NIST are presented, including powder characterization, machine characterization, in-situ process monitoring, surface and dimensional metrology, and spatio-temporal data registration. Finally, perspectives on the future metrology needs for metals AM are presented.

Biography:  Brandon Lane received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University in 2013, and soon after joined the NIST Engineering Laboratory. He leads the Real-Time Monitoring for Additive Manufacturing project, co-leads development of the Additive Manufacturing Metrology Testbed (AMMT), and co-chairs the Additive Manufacturing Benchmark (AM-Bench) test series. His expertise is in metrological aspects of applied thermography, high speed imaging, and radiometric thermometry.

Submission of abstracts

Abstracts are expected to describe original work, previously unpublished and should indicate new and significant advances and their importance. Initially short abstracts between of around 300 words in length should be submitted online using the below links.

Following review of short abstracts, authors will be provided with instructions for submitting extended abstracts of between two and four A4 pages. On acceptance of extended abstracts, authors are notified of presentation mode (poster/oral). All papers accepted will also be indexed on to euspen’s Knowledge Base which is indexed via Google Scholar. The final decision on acceptance of all papers is made by the Editor and Scientific Committee of the SIG meeting.

The invitation to submit an abstract does not constitute an offer to pay travel, accommodation or registration costs associated with the conference. Similarly, no speaker fee is paid to successful participants. All speakers must register for the conference and transfer registration fee. In specific cases the organising committee reserves the right to deviate from the standard procedure.
