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

Posted on : 02 June 2017

Project Description

ProjectConsistently 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 KU Leuven premises.
