PhD position on developing design guidelines for Precision Additive Manufacturing Leuven Belgium,  

KU Leuven (company)


Posted on : 02 June 2017

Project Description

Project
  • Consistently producing accurate parts by Additive Manufacturing can only be achieved if the part s design is well-tailored to specific capabilities of AM. 
  • Nevertheless, little research has been dedicated to the development of design for additive manufacturing  rules for industrial components. 
  • Within this PhD project, you will investigate e.g.minimum producible dimensions (of holes and ridges), as well as develop a procedure to define the optimal support structure needed to avoid overheating and extreme down-facing roughness. 
  • You will moreover compare final part dimensions to design specifications in order to define correction algorithms for first-time-right processing. 
  • The influences of the AM machine and settings,the processed material, and the geometry all contribute to the challenge.
  • You will address this challenge both experimentally as well as through process modelling. 
  • For your experimental work, you will have access to a wide range of high-tech machines for Additive Manufacturing as well as for quality control (e.g. X-ray Computed Tomography) available within the university premises.
  •  The PAM network will moreover provide access to additional test facilities at our European partners, as well as to a dynamic network of PhD students that look forward to collaborate regarding e.g.the identification of critical features or regarding process modeling.
