Laser Ultrasound NDT and Acoustic Emission process monitoring
Novel Quality Assurance for metal-AM: Laser Ultrasound NDT and Acoustic Emission process monitoring
To enable a still wider uptake of 3D-printed parts in all industries, perfect Quality Assurance is key. Based on examples from very different fields we will show demo-case applications for two approaches to quality-assurance for metal-AM:
-On one hand we show the Non-Destructive Quality-Control in a completed part, built by L-PBF from TI64: we demonstrate the comparison of X-Ray inspection and Non-Destructive Inspection by Laser-Ultrasound.
-On the other hand we present successful tests to identify anomalies in a CMT-process by application of a high-resolution Acoustic Emission measurement for in-situ process monitoring.
