A methodology to determine probability of detection (POD) of X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) was developed using Additive Manufacturing defects. A signal response POD analysis (a^ vs a) was used, where both signal response (a^) and true defect size (a)

Root-cause analysis of wear-induced error motion changes of machine tool linear axes

May 23, 2019
Gregory W. Vogl, Jordan Jameson, Andreas Archenti, Karoly Szipka, M A. Donmez
Manufacturers need online methods that give updated information of system capabilities to know and predict the performance of their machine tools. Use of an inertial measurement unit (IMU) is attractive for on-machine condition monitoring, so methods based

May 14, 2019

Justin G. Whiting, Vipin N. Tondare, John H. Scott, Thien Q. Phan, M A. Donmez

Metal powder particle size and size distribution (PSD) are critical factors affecting powder layer density and uniformity in additive manufacturing processes. Among various existing measurement methods, dynamic image analysis (DIA) instruments are very

The Effects of Laser Powder Bed Fusion Process Parameters on Material Hardness and Density for Nickel Alloy 625

August 21, 2018
Christopher U. Brown, Gregor Jacob, Antonio M. Possolo, Carlos R. Beauchamp, Max A. Peltz, Mark R. Stoudt, M A. Donmez
The goal of this study was to investigate the relationship between mechanical and material properties (including density) of manufactured nickel super alloy (IN625) using a laser powder bed fusion process and three process parameters: laser power, hatch

A Collaborative Data Management System for Additive Manufacturing

August 9, 2017
Yan Lu, Paul W. Witherell, M A. Donmez
As additive manufacturing (AM) continues to mature as a production technology, the limiting factors that have hindered its adoption in the past still exist, for example, process repeatability and material availability issues. Overcoming many of these

Infrared measurement of the temperature at the tool-chip interface while machining Ti-6Al-4V

November 29, 2016
Jarred C. Heigel, Eric P. Whitenton, Brandon M. Lane, M A. Donmez, Wilfredo Moscoso-Kingsley, Vis Madhavan
The challenges associated with machining titanium alloys (e.g. Ti-6Al-4V) are directly related to high cutting tool temperatures due to the low thermal conductivity of titanium alloys and the heat generated in the primary shear zone and at the tool-chip
