Dr. Curtis Frederick, additive manufacturing utility dpecialist at Zeiss Industrial High quality Options presents Overcoming the Challenges of New Designs, Supplies, and Printers with X-Ray CT.
Hear in regards to the successes and failures of 3D printing a topology optimized warmth exchanger with a brand new alloy, Aluminum F357, that had not been printed on a Xline 1000 printer earlier than this undertaking. Utilizing X-ray CT enabled fast improvement of recent print parameters in a single construct and printing the redesigned warmth exchangers within the subsequent. Some background will likely be given on X-ray CT and a proof of the parameter choice technique we’ve got created and the positives/negatives of this technique. Upon inspection of the printed components, our workflow had generated sudden gaps within the components. CT scanning the printed components allowed us to find out the scale of the interior hole and regulate the fashions accordingly.
