OPPLA Process Parameters Optimization for the EBM system

Obiettivo

The main goal of the present research project is to acquire a know-how on EBM Technology in order to improve the production quality. More in detail the research activity is aimed at investigating the influence of the process parameters (i.e. speed and beam current) on the EBMed components quality in terms of: microstructural properties, geometrical and dimensional tolerance and surface roughness.

Attività nel progetto CIRA

CIRA activities of the OPPLA project will be:

DOE:  at this this stage the main process parameters will be identified and a test matrix will be carried out choosing suitable intervals variables;

EBMed Manufacturing prototypes: several components will be built according to the test matrix defined in the previous activity;

Microstructural and Mechanical Characterization of EBMed Components: Microstructural and Mechanical Characterization tests will be carried out allowing the qualification of the components made by EBM technology;

Data Post Processing: Microstructural and Mechanical Characterization results will be analized in order to find correlation between process parameters and components properties (surface roughness, geometrical and dimensional tolerance, mechanical properties, microstructure, etc).
