In this video, recorded for the ASME AM Summit July 2021, Alex Benham shows how the addition of an In-Situ monitoring system can propel the overall quality and economics of your additive manufacturing production operation to greater heights. The content is split into two major sections. Section one covers an economics model for an AM production operation and how that relates to monitoring systems. What we’ll see is the effect on scrap rate, specifically for highly complex parts that are commonly found in industries like aerospace, DOD, automotive, transportation, energy, academia and R&D. Section two talks about how the economics bridge into the physical world and how you can provide control metrics allowing users to manage quality on every part in every layer of every build. We will then discuss how the addition of complex analytical tools via machine learning pushes the boundaries even further.
