Optical quality control for extrusion 3D printing

Additive Manufacturing
Project title Optical quality control for extrusion 3D printing (Quali3D)
Project duration 01.07.2019 – 30.06.2021
Press release

Additive manufacturing is a fast-growing market. Especially for small and medium-sized companies extrusion based additive manufacturing is interesting due to the large number of processable materials and application areas. However, as a supplement to existing manufacturing technologies a nationwide use of extrusion based additive manufacturing is not in progress. Deficits in the knowledge of process qualities and control variables lead to quality problems and a lack of acceptance regarding to the technology. In addition, with today's 3d-printers process errors will not be detected or only after the completion of a part.

The aim of this research project is to assure the additive manufacturing process with optical measuring technology. The inline quality assurance system works layer by layer. The project will contribute to the further industrialization of additive manufacturing.
