Book Description :

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the term used for layer-oriented or generative manufacturing, which was introduced at the end of the 1980s as Rapid Prototyping. Within the last 20 years it has developed dramatically. Today it is not only a valuable tool for making models and prototypes but also a manufacturing method for final parts as well as for mold inserts. It spreads throughout all disciplines and branches of industry, from art to medicine and from car manufacturing to aerospace engineering. AM is about to revolutionize manufacturing technology. This book is designed as a supporting material not only for special courses on advanced manufacturing technology but also for updating the content of traditional manufacturing lessons. It also provides basic information to facilitate self studies and is a valuable quick guide to AM.

Book Description :

The use of additive manufacturing for the direct production of finished products is becoming increasingly important. The method not only reduces the demands on industrial infrastructure, but also opens up new perspectives in terms of decentralized production and customer inclusive individualized production (customization, cyberproduction). Oriented towards the practitioner, in this book the basics of additive manufacturing are presented and the properties and special aspects of industrially available machines are discussed. From the generation of data to the forming method, the complete process chain is shown in a practical light. In particular, the following additive manufacturing technologies are discussed: - Polymerization (e.g., stereolithography) - Sintering and melting (e.g., laser sintering) - Layer laminate method (e.g., laminated object manufacturing, LOM) - Extrusion (e.g., fused deposition modeling, FDM) - 3D printing Applications for the production of models and prototypes (rapid prototyping), tools, tool inserts, and forms (rapid tooling) as well as end products (rapid manufacturing) are covered in detailed chapters with examples. Questions of efficiency are discussed from a strategic point of view, and also from an operational perspective.

Book Description :

Within the last decade, several industrialized countries have stressed the importance of advanced manufacturing to their economies. Many of these plans have highlighted the development of additive manufacturing techniques, such as 3D printing which, as of 2018, are still in their infancy. The objective is to develop superior products, produced at lower overall operational costs. For these goals to be realized, a deep understanding of the essential ingredients comprising the materials involved in additive manufacturing is needed. The combination of rigorous material modeling theories, coupled with the dramatic increase of computational power can potentially play a significant role in the analysis, control, and design of many emerging additive manufacturing processes. Specialized materials and the precise design of their properties are key factors in the processes. Specifically, particle-functionalized materials play a central role in this field, in three main regimes: (1) to enhance overall filament-based material properties, by embedding particles within a binder, which is then passed through a heating element and the deposited onto a surface, (2) to “functionalize” inks by adding particles to freely flowing solvents forming a mixture, which is then deposited onto a surface and (3) to directly deposit particles, as dry powders, onto surfaces and then to heat them with a laser, e-beam or other external source, in order to fuse them into place. The goal of these processes is primarily to build surface structures which are extremely difficult to construct using classical manufacturing methods. The objective of this monograph is introduce the readers to basic techniques which can allow them to rapidly develop and analyze particulate-based materials needed in such additive manufacturing processes. This monograph is broken into two main parts: “Continuum Method” (CM) approaches and “Discrete Element Method” (DEM) approaches. The materials associated with methods (1) and (2) are closely related types of continua (particles embedded in a continuous binder) and are treated using continuum approaches. The materials in method (3), which are of a discrete particulate character, are analyzed using discrete element methods.

Book Description :

Additive manufacturing (AM) methods have great potential for promoting transformative research in many fields across the vast spectrum of engineering and materials science. AM is one of the leading forms of advanced manufacturing which enables direct computer-aided design (CAD) to part production without part-specific tooling. In October 2015 the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop of experts from diverse communities to examine predictive theoretical and computational approaches for various AM technologies. While experimental workshops in AM have been held in the past, this workshop uniquely focused on theoretical and computational approaches and involved areas such as simulation-based engineering and science, integrated computational materials engineering, mechanics, materials science, manufacturing processes, and other specialized areas. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Book Description :

Additive Manufacturing (AM) -commonly known as 3d printing - is experiencing an upward trend as measured by a number of metrics, such as patent filing and number of company entries. The number of companies manufacturing hardware, software and materials serving both consumer and industrial segments of this industry has increased over recent years. This technology has radically changed how companies, designers and consumers in general go about prototyping their ideas. AM has also impacted low-volume manufacturing by allowing the production of small batches of products with all the advantages and flexibility the technology confers. Because the industry is still in its fluid phase, a high level of activity and significant changes are still to come. Employing Diffusion of Innovation theory by E.M. Rogers [1] which proposes the use of five factors or dimensions to assess the diffusion speed: relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, triability and observability; the study followed a two-pronged methodology. First I conducted semi-structured interviews and observational analysis; then, I analyzed technological developments, patent activity and firm entry. This study uncovers that 3d-printing something without observing technical requirements is quite easy. But 3d-printing a product that complies with a set of product requirements and specifications, so that the component can then be used in the context of a larger assembly or specific use, is quite another story. Based on observational data this thesis describes the vicissitudes of designing, selecting the printer, setting up the printer's parameters and ultimately printing a component, and thus demonstrates a perspective of the adoptability of this technology.
