Real-time melt monitoring

  • 04-Aug-2010 04:03 EDT

Concept Laser’s quality management system for real-time monitoring of the LaserCUSING process, also known as selective laser melting, includes an evaluation of the process data, which can be adapted to the customer’s documentation. The pilot partner is the German Aerospace Centre. Its Engineering Systems House division uses the Concept Laser process to conduct research on turbine components and other metal applications in aircraft construction. The QM package includes real-time monitoring of the melt pool at the microscopic level. The melt-pool module follows the ongoing construction process with several thousand scans per second, analyzing data within the melt track in real time.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.
One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
