  • Mass production strategy for additive manufacturing by stacking the
           product at design phase
    • Authors: Arivazhagan Pugalendhi, Rajesh Ranganathan, M.P. Sreekanth
      Pages: 106 - 122
      Abstract: Mass production is usually aimed to reduce the costs involved in product development by increasing the number of units without compromising the quality. Additive manufacturing (AM) technology can reduce the manufacturing lead time; however, it is widely seen as a non-mass production system due to its build volume restrictions and many other factors. In this paper, a strategy named as stacking of parts during modelling/design phase is suggested to overcome the above-mentioned limitation. For this strategy, a square component and a washer were printed in Objet260 Connex machine which yielded a good amount of material (model and support) saving. Further, the numbers of parts which can be built with stacking in the design phase have increased drastically compared with the case of the array made using Objet Studio. Thus, the study recommends adopting the mass production approach in AM. Finally, mechanical properties were also analysed for parts quality.

  • Teaching leadership in additive manufacturing: doing the right thing,
           before doing it right
    • Authors: Arivazhagan Pugalendhi, Rajesh Ranganathan, M.P. Sreekanth
      Pages: 123 - 136
      Abstract: As additive manufacturing matures, there is sufficient critical mass in the industry and market place to justify the development of more comprehensive and cohesive educational strategies. This article is informed by research into the emerging educational landscape for the technology. The article highlights the breadth of educational strategies currently employed and considers drivers for additive manufacturing education and their development in the context of supporting the education of both an effective, as well as efficient, workforce for the future.

  • Phantom holes: optimised internal structural design for use with additive
           manufacturing, typical fused filament fabrication systems
    • Authors: Arivazhagan Pugalendhi, Rajesh Ranganathan, M.P. Sreekanth
      Pages: 137 - 166
      Abstract: It is understood that additive manufacturing (AM) allows the designer to control the exterior shape and internal structure for the design and fabrication of products. However, although AM allows for some internal structural control, how the designer controls that internal structure is limited to the options of the slicing software and the equipment. The designer does not have options within current slicer software to create customised shapes of concentrated material within the internal structure. Designers have to increase the infill throughout the entire object to address a limited area material failure zone. This paper introduces a methodology known as the phantom hole (PH) technique that will allow designers to create custom shaped, solid, internal structures within objects fabricated by many fused filament fabrication (FFF) machines. In initial shear and flexural testing, the PH technique resulted in a 39% improvement in specimen loading performance over specimens fabricated with higher infill percentages.

  • A smart decision making tool for cleaning process planning in
           remanufacturing
    • Authors: Juan Carlos Martinez, Zhenhua Wu, Jianzhi Li, Miguel Gonzalez
      Pages: 167 - 193
      Abstract: Equipping stakeholders with advanced tools to make better decisions for sustainable production is a key to research in smart manufacturing in the 21st century. A smart decision tool to select the optimal cleaning processes for remanufacturing is presented in this paper. The approach started from formulating the process selection problem to a linear programming model to minimise the cost while observing the constraints of part cleaning level, processing time, and energy consumption. In order to model the vague and uncertain information associated with contamination, cost, time and energy consumption, fuzzy sets were applied. Finally, a genetic algorithm was proposed to search for the optimal solution to the mathematical model. Further, a software prototype was coded in MATLAB® to validate the proposed approach. Two case study results show that the proposed approach can overcome the deficiency on handling information vagueness and multiple objectives when searching for optimal cleaning solutions in remanufacturing. The proposed approach is systematic; it can be integrated into process planning in remanufacturing.

  • A comparison framework to support the selection of the best additive
           manufacturing process for specific aerospace applications
    • Authors: Alberto Garcia-Colomo, Dudley Wood, Filomeno Martina, Stewart W. Williams
      Pages: 194 - 211
      Abstract: Additive manufacturing (AM) is a cutting-edge technology that provides up to 100% of material efficiency and significant weight reduction which will positively impact aircraft fuel consumption in addition to high design freedom. Consequently, many aerospace companies are considering implementing AM thanks to these benefits. Therefore, the aim of this research is to assist aerospace organisations with a selection among different AM technologies. To enable this, primary data from (8) experts in the field of AM was collected through semi-structured interviews and cross-referenced with secondary data to identify the key factors for consideration in the selection of AM equipment for aerospace applications. Four AM technologies laser powder bed fusion (LPBF), electron beam powder bed fusion (EBPBF), wire arc AM (WAAM) and laser metal deposition (LMD) were highlighted by the experts as the most appropriate for aerospace applications. The main outcome of this study is the development of a comparison framework that helps companies select their AM technology depending on their main business or specific application.

      Abstract: Layer thickness is one of the most important input process parameters in laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) additive manufacturing (AM) since it directly affects the defects found in the printed products, such as porosity, cracks, and manufacturing rate. In this work, three-dimensional finite element heat transfer model was employed to compare and evaluate two different powder layer thicknesses (20 μm and 40 μm) at varying laser power and scanning speeds. A layer-thickness dependent laser absorptivity approach was considered to improve the prediction accuracy of the proposed model. Single track experiments with stainless steel 17-4PH were conducted to validate the simulation model. Simulation results show good agreement with the experimental results with different layer thicknesses. The corresponding averaged melt pool error for width and depth were 4.2% and 9.1%, respectively. It is found that the melt pool dimensions with different layer thicknesses are similar for the most part with slight variations in the melt pool dimensions using varying laser power and scanning speed. However, the morphology of the melt pool track shows visible changes between different thicknesses.

  • A statistical approach for process optimisation of digital light
           processing 3D printing process
    • Authors: Ergin Erdem, Arif Sirinterlikci
      Pages: 231 - 250
      Abstract: This study focuses on experimental design-based approach for process optimisation of a custom-made digital light processing 3D printer. Output measures are developed taking precision and accuracy into consideration. Initial runs were conducted to identify the prominent factors which might play role on output measures. The results indicate that the layer thickness plays a significant role for the two of the developed output measures, photopolymerisation time for one measure, and sequence time for two measures as the interaction-effects also play a role to some. A composite figure that considers all three output measures simultaneously is also developed and a stepwise regression analysis is conducted to identify significant factors. The regression model has moderate <i>R</i><SUP align="right">2</SUP> value (68.12%), also indicating that layer thickness and photopolymerisation period play a role. The recommended levels for layer thickness is found to be 0.2 millimetres and photopolymerisation period as 12 seconds based on the composite figure.

  • Investigation of the tensile properties in fibre-reinforced additive
           manufacturing and fused filament fabrication
    • Authors: Yolnan Chen, Cesar Ortiz Rios, Astrit Imeri, Nicholas A. Russell, Ismail Fidan
      Pages: 251 - 267
      Abstract: This research project examines how fibre orientation affects the strength of a part produced by fibre-reinforced additive manufacturing (FRAM) process. Tensile specimens with varying fibre orientations were made using a 3D printer capable of printing with carbon fibre (CF), Kevlar (KV), and fibre glass (FG). Various tensile tests have been performed for different fibre orientation and materials. The strongest fibre orientations, in descending order, were two rings concentric with isotropic fill and five ring concentric fill. While fibre orientation and infill percentage could be specified for each layer, the fibre starting location was automatically determined which sometimes resulted in decreasing strength of the part by introducing stress concentration. Currently, industrial trends in the utilisation of fused filament fabrication (FFF) printers are mostly on PLA and ABS-based polymer materials. And, there is no comprehensive study available investigating the relations between these traditional FFF processes and continuous FRAM processes. The aim of this study is to provide an in-depth tensile property analysis showing the advantageous of FRAM compared to conventional FFF technologies.

  • Power consumption investigation for fused filament fabricated specimen
    • Authors: Hunter James Hinshaw, Shane Terry, Ismail Fidan
      Pages: 268 - 279
      Abstract: This paper describes a research project comparing various settings of current 3D printers and the effect on part quality and machine efficiency. The goal of this research is to determine the most appropriate parameters with which to 3D print any component. The chosen settings should provide a final product of quality while being efficient within three categories: print completion time, part weight, and Kilowatt-per-hour consumption. The purpose being to establish a set of parameters that will provide the sought-after efficiency on any fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printer, in any application, for any production part. These parameters could prove to benefit additive manufacturing (AM), saving time, material, and electrical energy cost. This study provides results for the most efficient settings across three parameters: layer height, infill ratio, and shell count. Through testing, given the experimental set-up and parameters, 0.3 mm, 3 shells, 25% infill was the most efficient array of settings in this application.
