Basic Technology Development Project for Metal Additive Manufacturing Parts
Additive manufacturing technology is starting to spread to the field of manufacturing for metal parts. However, in terms of the molding of high value-added complex shapes, advanced parts, and functional alloys, there are a number of issues, including the difficulty of reproducing product quality and the enormous costs and time required for new development. The purpose of this project is to elucidate melting and solidification phenomena that occur in the field of metal additive manufacturing, predict the occurrence of defects, and develop advanced measurement and machine control technology for use during the manufacturing process in order to ensure the high quality of additively manufactured metal parts and increase development efficiency. The ultimate goal is to introduce additive manufacturing devices to casting-material companies in Japan.
