Integrated process chains for the production of series components: a task which the Additive Manufacturing (AM) process Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) is confronted with. Above all, a decisive development task lies in the coordination of individual process steps. In particular, the benefits of AM, such as design freedom, can currently only be partially exploited.
For this reason, the DAP chair considers all horizontal and vertical elements of the AM process chain as well as interfaces in between: from digitalization and production networking to materials and manufacturing to post-processing and quality assurance. The goal of this research is to enable an economic and resource-efficient series production of additively manufactured components.
As part of the joint project “Additive Manufactured BLISK to Sky (AMB2S)”, an engine component production chain consisting of AM, subtractive post-processing and certification is being developed specifically for the aerospace industry.
