Hybrid Additive Manufacturing Book Review:

Hybrid Additive Manufacturing: Techniques, Applications and Benefits explains the fundamentals of hybrid AM, definitions, classifications, and principles, as well as key techniques of hybrid AM, its applications, design guidelines, and benefits, with emphasis on key aspects of the system integration process. The core of this subject is in describing how to overcome inherent processing limitations of layer-by-layer AM through the integration of secondary post-processing such as machining or heat treatment. As a result hybrid AM plays a critical role in accelerating the adoption of AM in established design and manufacturing activities. The applications of hybrid AM in both metals and polymers are discussed in this book, as are geometrical dimensioning and tolerancing, material property enhancement, non-traditional surface finishing, in-situ sequential hybrid processing, and integrated process planning. This book will serve not only as an introduction to hybrid AM but also as a handbook for researchers and engineers in mechanical, manufacturing, industrial, electronics, and materials science, thanks to its interdisciplinary approach and detailed case studies. Explains how hybrid manufacturing processes can be used to achieve enhanced material properties and functionality Describes the significance of hybrid additive manufacturing to different parts of the process chain Uses case studies to show how innovative companies are using this technology, how they have overcome challenges they encountered, and the benefits they have experienced

Design and Analysis of a Hybrid Subtractive and Additive Manufacturing Unit Book Review:

Automation in production of 3D printed parts, hybrid additive and subtractive machines, and post-processing of 3D printed parts are rapidly growing fields. Given the numerous advancements in the 3D printing industry as reported in this thesis, the lack of availability of a Do It Yourself (DIY) and low-cost hybrid additive and subtractive unit is identified and tackled. This thesis covers the mechanical design of a low-cost DIY, hybrid additive and subtractive unit using a robot arm to remove the 3D printing support structures. Since the removal of printed support structures has not been investigated in the scientific literature, in a first step, different cutting tools and speeds were analyzed with a hand-held Dremel 4000 power tool with regard to cut quality and cutting forces. An off-the-shelf tool bit, a High-Speed steel cutter, at 15000 rpm yielded the best results. Furthermore, a hybrid machine was conceptualized, consisting of additive and subtractive subsystems. The constraints are a working volume of 6 cubic inches and costs below $5000. The additive system is based on following components: X, Y and Z Motor Holders, Filament Holder, and 3D Printing Arm, which can be printed by the DIY user, and off-the-shelf hardware like NEMA 17 stepper motors. The subtractive system is based on the following components: Motor Holder, Linkbot Mounting Interface, and Connector Arm, which are also designed to be 3D printed by the DIY users. For both subsystems, the off-the-shelf parts are specified, and technical drawings for 3D printing and assembly are provided. The critical 3D printed parts are analyzed with regard to their maximum distortion and strength during operation.

Additive Manufacturing Applications for Metals and Composites Book Review:

Additive manufacturing (AM) of metals and composites using laser energy, direct energy deposition, electron beam methods, and wire arc melting have recently gained importance due to their advantages in fabricating the complex structure. Today, it has become possible to reliably manufacture dense parts with certain AM processes for many materials, including steels, aluminum and titanium alloys, superalloys, metal-based composites, and ceramic matrix composites. In the near future, the AM material variety will most likely grow further, with high-performance materials such as intermetallic compounds and high entropy alloys already under investigation. Additive Manufacturing Applications for Metals and Composites is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on advancing methods and technological developments within additive manufacturing practices. Special attention is paid to the material design of additive manufacturing of parts, the choice of feedstock materials, the metallurgical behavior and synthesis principle during the manufacturing process, and the resulted microstructures and properties, as well as the relationship between these factors. While highlighting topics such as numerical modeling, intermetallic compounds, and statistical techniques, this publication is ideally designed for students, engineers, researchers, manufacturers, technologists, academicians, practitioners, scholars, and educators.

Additive Manufacturing Volume 2 Book Review:

Additive manufacturing (AM) is one of the manufacturing processes that warrants the attention of industrialists, researchers and scientists, because of its ability to produce materials with a complex shape without theoretical restrictions and with added functionalities. There are several advantages to employing additive manufacturing as the primary additive manufacturing process. However, there exist several challenges that need to be addressed systematically. A couple such issues are alloy design and process development. Traditionally alloys designed for conventional cast/powder metallurgical processes were fabricated using advanced AM processes. This is the wrong approach considering that the alloys should be coined based on the process characteristics and meta-stable nature of the process. Hence, we must focus on alloy design and development for AM that suits the AM processes. The AM processes, however, improve almost every day, either in terms of processing capabilities or processing conditions. Hence, the processing part warrants a section that is devoted to these advancements and innovations. Accordingly, the present Special Issue (book) focuses on two aspects of alloy development and process innovations. Here, 45 articles are presented covering different AM processes including selective laser melting, electron beam melting, laser cladding, direct metal laser sintering, ultrasonic consolidation, wire arc additive manufacturing, and hybrid manufacturing. I believe that this Special Issue bears is vital to the field of AM and will be a valuable addition.

Automatic Process Planning For a Five Axis Additive Hybrid Manufacturing System Book Review:

A multi-axis additive manufacturing (AM) system allows for reorienting of the geometry during a build to gain greater building flexibility over that of traditional planar layer by layer additive manufacturing processes. A hybrid manufacturing (HM) system integrates computer numerical control (CNC) machining with multi-axis AM into one process that can switch between each of these two processes, reaping the benefits of both. Currently, these two systems require significant manual work to transform the CAD design into a manufactured part. With the lack of automated process planning algorithms to avoid the significant amount manual work necessary, adoption of HM technology has been slow. Critical components of process planning in multi-axis AM and HM include: 3D model decomposition, sequencing of production of the decomposed volumes, and toolpath generation. Three process planning approaches are presented in this dissertation which seek to reduce the manual work required by automating each of the critical components. The first two approaches rely on the concept of generating decomposed volumes that are self-supported, and sequencing these volumes in a manner that avoids collisions between the build and the AM or HM system, then mapping tool path strategies to each of these volumes. The first approach treats the five-axis machine as a 3+2 axis machine, where the rotational axes are only used for positioning and the decomposed volumes only accommodate planar tool paths. The 2nd approach uses the full five-axis capability and 3D tool paths are used to decompose the part into self supported volumes that can be built without additional support structures. The 3rd approach, referred to as direct five-axis slicing, eliminates the volume decomposition and can directly generate the 3D slices, associating each slice with a tool path. All the approaches are focused on eliminating support structures and avoiding local collision between the tool and the part. Algorithms for decomposition are developed based on the process of identifying concave edges in a part's geometry and segmenting the part along these edges using the surfaces generated by the concave edges. For each decomposed volume, a build direction is identified along with the building sequence and toolpath strategy that can be used to generate the detailed toolpaths. Several case studies using the developed algorithms are presented, along with simulations and experimental results, to validate and showcase the capabilities of the three proposed process planning approaches. A comparison of the three approaches is also included to highlight the features and the limitations of each approach.

Machining Behavior and Material Properties in Additive Manufacturing of Ti 6Al 4V Parts Book Review:

Additive Manufacturing (AM) has unique advantages in processing complex and customized part designs using superalloys. Metal AM parts currently do not meet the part tolerance and surface finish requirements for most mechanical applications. Hence, there is a growing need for integrated metal hybrid manufacturing through both "in-envelope" and "sequential" additive-subtractive manufacturing. Metal hybrid manufacturing integrates the unique advantages of the ability to produce complex geometries in AM with the desired surface finish and required tolerance in subtractive manufacturing. During the metal AM process, thermal cycling and different cooling rate lead to anisotropic mechanical properties and residual stress. Since AM metal parts are inherently different from traditional alloys, a critical gap to correlate as-built AM material properties, material characterization, machining parameters on resulting cutting force, specific cutting energy, and surface morphology have been revealed in this study. To the best of this author's knowledge, this is the first reported effort to establish a comprehensive data science based framework to correlate highly unique AM-specific grain morphology and resulting post-AM machining behavior. This study reports on the influence of different AM processes (EBM, L-PBF, DED) that would lead to varying microstructure and subtractive machine parameters (feed, speed, and depth of cut) with varying microstructure under different machining conditions (feed, speed, and depth of cut) for AM Ti-6Al-4V alloy. It was found that specific cutting energy is statistically different across all AM materials and can vary by over 21.6% based on the AM process through a Taguchi-based orthogonal array design of experiments. A novel machine learning (ML) based PSP linkage is established to understand the relationship between AM grain morphology and resulting material response, i.e., machining behavior with a high prediction accuracy (> 99.5%).

Additive Manufacturing of Titanium Alloys Book Review:

Additive Manufacturing of Titanium Alloys: State of the Art, Challenges and Opportunities provides alternative methods to the conventional approach for the fabrication of the majority of titanium components produced via the cast and wrought technique, a process which involves a considerable amount of expensive machining. In contrast, the Additive Manufacturing (AM) approach allows very close to final part configuration to be directly fabricated minimizing machining cost, while achieving mechanical properties at least at cast and wrought levels. In addition, the book offers the benefit of significant savings through better material utilization for parts with high buy-to-fly ratios (ratio of initial stock mass to final part mass before and after manufacturing). As titanium additive manufacturing has attracted considerable attention from both academicians and technologists, and has already led to many applications in aerospace and terrestrial systems, as well as in the medical industry, this book explores the unique shape making capabilities and attractive mechanical properties which make titanium an ideal material for the additive manufacturing industry. Includes coverage of the fundamentals of microstructural evolution in titanium alloys Introduces readers to the various Additive Manufacturing Technologies, such as Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Looks at the future of Titanium Additive Manufacturing Provides a complete review of the science, technology, and applications of Titanium Additive Manufacturing (AM)
