Influence of Robotic Kinematics and Accuracy on Defect Formation in LMD Processes

What is the path precision threshold requiered for defect-free LMD on robotic systems?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Previous studies have shown limited path precision on LMD systems and their impact on shape accuracy. 
  • To mitigate thes effects alternative suitable build strategies are evaluated.
  • However, the impact of process strategy related effects on the defect formation are not clear.


  • Investigate the influence of (robotic) path deviations on defect formation during LMD.
