Measuring downstream supply chain losses due to power disturbances

September 16, 2022
Douglas Thomas, Juan Fung
Power outages in the U.S. affect many firms' economic activity and are likely to result in downstream supply chain disruptions. This paper examines the impact of power disturbances in the supply chain for four industries: manufacturing, durable goods

Effects of local processing parameters on microstructure, texture, and mechanical properties of electron beam powder bed fusion manufactured Ti-6Al-4V

August 27, 2022
Edwin Schwalbach, Jake Benzing, Vikas Sinha, Todd Butler, Adam Pilchak, Kevin Chaput, Norman Schehl, Reji John, Nik Hrabe
Electron beam powder bed fusion scan strategies for parts or part groupings of various sizes and scan line lengths have been found to inadvertently lead to significant variations in crystallographic texture and mechanical properties for Ti–6Al–4V. This

Schmid Factor Crack Propagation and Tracking Crystallographic Texture Markers of Microstructural Condition in Direct Energy Deposition Additive Manufacturing of Ti-6Al-4V

July 6, 2022
Alec Saville, Jake Benzing, Sven Vogel, Jessica Buckner, Collin Donohoue, Andrew Kustas, Adam Abel Creuziger, Kester Clarke, Amy Clarke
Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) provides a customizable and tailorable manufacturing process for new engineering designs and technologies. The greatest challenge currently facing metallic AM is maintaining control of microstructural evolution during

Assessment of intra-build variations in tensile strength in electron beam powder-bed fusion Ti-6Al-4V part 1: Effects of build height

June 2, 2022
Nicholas Derimow, Alejandro Romero, Aldo Rubio, Cesar Terrazas, Newell Moser, Orion Kafka, Jake Benzing, Francisco Medina, Ryan Wicker, Nik Hrabe
In this work, rectangular blocks of electron beam powder-bed fusion (PBF-EB) additively manufactured (AM) Ti-6Al-4V were built, such that a total of 68 mini-tensile test coupons could be extracted for mechanical testing over a range of build height and

Agile Robotic Planning with Gwendolen

May 31, 2022
John L. Michaloski, Craig I. Schlenoff, Rafael Cardoso, Michael Fisher
The future of robotics foresees autonomous behavior that can complete tasks intelligently, with a focus on adaptability, flexibility, and versatility. In such systems, it is critical for robots to quickly and safely perform an operation. However, such

Assessment of intra-build variations in tensile strength in electron beam powder-bed fusion Ti-6Al-4V part 2: Effects of powder mixing

May 31, 2022
Nicholas Derimow, Jake Benzing, Orion Kafka, Newell Moser, Priya Pathare, Michael Walker, Frank DelRio, Nik Hrabe
In Part 2 of this paper series, high-throughput tensile testing and characterization of porosity, microstructure, and oxygen content was carried out on Ti-6Al-4V samples that were fabricated via electron beam powder-bed fusion (PBF-EB) to test our

A Data Integration Framework for Additive Manufacturing Big Data Management

April 21, 2022
Milica Perisic, Dimitrije Milenkovic, Yan Lu, Albert T. Jones, Nenad Ivezic, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Large amounts of data are generated throughout the entire, AM, part-development lifecycle. Data are generated by various functions within process monitoring, material characterization, equipment status, and part qualification. Hence, data integration and

Models for an Ultraviolet-C Research and Development Consortium

March 25, 2022
Dianne L. Poster, C Cameron Miller, Yaw S. Obeng, John J. Kasianowicz, Michael T. Postek, Norman Horn, Troy Cowan, Richard Martinello
The development of an international, precompetitive, collaborative, ultraviolet (UV) research consortium is discussed as an opportunity to lay the groundwork for a new UV commercial industry and the supply chain to support this industry. History has

Protecting Information and System Integrity in Industrial Control System Environments: Cybersecurity for the Manufacturing Sector

March 16, 2022
Michael Powell, Michael Pease, Keith A. Stouffer, CheeYee Tang, Timothy Zimmerman, Chelsea Dean, Kangmin Zheng, John Hoyt, Mary Raguso, Joseph brule, Aslam Sherule, Matthew Zopf
Today's manufacturing organizations rely on industrial control systems (ICS) to conduct their operations. Increasingly, ICS are facing more frequent, sophisticated cyber attacks—making manufacturing the second-most-targeted industry. Cyber attacks against

Design and Testing of Wireless Motion Gauges for Two Collaborative Robot Arms

March 11, 2022
Yong Sik Kim, Nicholas G. Dagalakis, Jeremy Marvel, Geraldine Cheok
Most existing robot performance evaluation methods focus on single robotic arms performing independent motion tasks. In this paper, a motion gauge is proposed to evaluate the symmetrical coordinated-motion performance between two robotic arms. For this

Refocusing the Barriers to Sustainability for Small and Medium Manufacturers

February 14, 2022
Xavier R. Escoto, Demsas Gebrehewot, KC Morris
Sustainable manufacturing practices are a necessary component of sustainable development. Current practices in a linear economy—produce, consume, discard—will not be sufficient to sustain humanity over the long term. At the same time manufacturing is
