Inline Process Monitoring for Large Format Fused Filament Fabrication Manufacturing
Speaker: Lea Niwar, Research Associate, WZL of RWTH Aachen University
Additive manufacturing technologies continue to show strong growth. For the increased use in series production, process stability and quality assurance play an important role. Inline process monitoring for additive manufacturing technologies enables users to recognize the quality of the component already during printing: a digital shadow of the component is created. However, the selection of the right technology for inline process monitoring among the available technologies remains difficult. This presentation discusses this issue for the case of large format Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) printing.
