A Review of the Additive Manufacturing Process

A Review of the Additive Manufacturing Process

The additive manufacturing process uses multiple processes to produce an item. Some of these processes include Laser-based additive manufacturing, Direct metal laser sintering, and Electron Beam DED. Binder jetting is another additive manufacturing technique that uses a liquid binder that binds the powder material to a print head. Once the binder binds the powder, the printer moves over it to spread the layer of powder. This process continues until the final item is solidly embedded in the unused powder.

Material extrusion

Material extrusion in additive manufacturing processes is an emerging technology. This type of manufacturing process has a wide range of applications. For example, material extrusion can be used to make 3D printer parts with materials such as carbon fiber or Kevlar. The process also allows users to embed metallic particles or carbon fiber into filament.

The material extrusion process is a promising approach to manufacturing with polymers. It allows the user to select the right amount of thermoplastic material for the job and then extrude it one layer at a time. It is particularly useful in the production of polypropylene components.

Laser-based additive manufacturing

Laser-based additive manufacturing processes have the potential to improve the performance and efficiency of a product, while reducing manufacturing costs. This paper presents a comprehensive review of these technologies for manufacturing metal parts, covering their underlying principles, mechanical properties, thermal behavior, and process parameters. It also discusses uncertainties associated with laser-based additive manufacturing processes.

In the process, a laser beam is guided through a nozzle, …
