Additive manufacturing forum 2022
July 05 - 06, 2022
Under the motto »Industrial 3D printing on the rise«, Fraunhofer IVI presented itself at the 6th Additive Manufacturing Forum 2022, the leading conference for additive manufacturing with trade exhibition, in Berlin from July 5 to 6, 2022. The institute presented the AMCOCS project - a platform for digital testing and certification procedures in additive manufacturing.
In order to be allowed to use such a process, providing proof of strength is a necessary prerequisite. Currently, only very time-consuming and cost-intensive quality assurance processes exist for this area, which represent a high hurdle for the widespread use of this methodology. AMCOCS aims to accelerate the test and certification process by developing a digital, self-learning testing and certification platform. This will bundle data from the production phases of additive manufacturing, post-processing and material parameter determination.
As part of this project, AMCOCS will be piloted with use cases from the aerospace industry. Complex algorithms can be used to derive predictions about the strength of the objects to be printed. In the future, it should be possible to make reliable statements about the strength of the objects to be printed in advance, i.e. before printing. The material parameters determined on this basis will enable the user to carry out a professional design. Manual testing and certification procedures can thus be shortened.
