Title TU Delft Researchers Develop Heat Accumulation Detection Procedure for SLM 3D Printing Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet 3Dprint.com Media type Web Date 7/09/18 Description Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a powder-based 3D printing technique also known as Laser Beam Melting or Laser Powder Bed Fusion, has been used to process metal in a variety of sectors, such as automotive, medical, and aerospace. Because this AM method offers excellent freedom of form, it’s a perfect enabling technology for designs that are topology optimized; this means they have a complex layout, but still offer a superior performance. But, SLM 3D printers don’t always realize the dimensional accuracies that are necessary for very precise components.
A group of researchers from TU Delft recently published a paper, titled “Towards Design for Precision Additive Manufacturing: A Simplified Approach for Detecting Heat Accumulation,” focused on a simper heat accumulation detection procedure – very important for creating a TO scheme that can account for thermal 3D printing aspects.
