Adaptive Process Control for LPBF
Can part quality be increased by a locally adapted LPBF process control
Challenge and Motivation
- Currently LPBF process parameters are kept constant and are not adjusted to the part geometry.
- Result are deviations in geometry and part quality e.g. in filigree areas of the part, as well as restrictions in productivity and process robustness.
- Development of strategies for adaptive LPBF process control by adaption of energy input.
- Comparison with conventional process control and other approaches such as the use of local sleep times.
