Abstract

Metal-based additive manufacturing technology has gained significant traction in recent years. However, questions regarding the consistency of part quality, the capability for in-process certification, sensor integration, and the transfer of processing parameters still linger. In part, these concerns result from the black-box-approach of most commercial machine manufacturers: processing settings are often opaque and systems provide no capability for high-speed, real-time monitoring or control of build settings and process sensors. Here, the digital data requirements for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing (PBFAM) are examined. A methodology for machine-to-machine communication between PBFAM machines and heterogeneous systems is presented. The capabilities of such a methodology are demonstrated using a case-study on a 3D Systems ProX-200 system.
