Additive manufacturing (AM) has the ability to fabricate complex geometries and components with improved efficiency and performance, not possible with conventional methods. A current challenge still remains in certifying processes and qualifying components in the effort to transition from prototyping to widespread adoption of AM for production. Process reliability and the repeatability of material properties require understanding, monitoring, and controlling thermal conditions throughout the part and melt pool geometry. Continue reading
If you can measure it, you can control it!
Controlled 3D processes lead to part quality & repeatability.
Stratonics Inc. will be on-site at the RAPID 2016 Conference showcasing the need for sensors and control in additive manufacturing (AM) and how our ThermaViz® Sensor System technology can provide the right tools and solutions to meet your requirements. Continue reading
