Advanced Simulation Solutions Applied to Quality Control of Laser Deposited Metals

Project description

High-quality 3D-printed aircraft engine parts

A low-cost, high-speed alternative to existing 3D material processing technologies in the aerospace industry is laser wire deposition. This additive manufacturing process uses a robot-mounted high-power laser to form a melt pool on the surface of a titanium substrate into which metal wire is fed. The EU-funded project ASSALA is developing novel numerical tools to minimise the likelihood of undesirable defects during the processing of titanium. Advanced computer models and control software will improve the reliability of aero engine parts and reduce rejects. The goal is to manufacture defect-free complex aircraft parts with lower buy-to-fly ratios of titanium, an expensive metal.
