Industrial Sector: Aviation

The aerospace industry is one of the primary sectors which leverages additive manufacturing (AM) to its fullest extent. Cost savings, weight reduction, functional improvements, and schedule optimization are key drivers which can be achieved through the redesigning of existing components, on-demand production of replacement parts, new design concepts, and through part consolidation. New materials with superior or similar properties, capable process controls, process stability, and novel design methodologies are the key enablers. However, related standards, as well as qualification and certification (Q&C) practices, may need to be re-evaluated/updated for additively manufactured products and the digital manufacturing process.

Industrial Sector: Defense

Additive manufacturing (AM) enables the modernization of current defense systems. The ability to fabricate highly optimized and complex parts helps to further enhance the capabilities of these systems. Additionally, by providing an alternative route to manufacturing hard-to-source spare parts and parts at the point of need (e.g., on-site battle damage repair or on-site manufacturing of temporary spare parts, etc.), AM also helps to improve logistical readiness. As a result, the defense industry has taken the lead in advancing and maturing AM technology. However, existing standards and practices (e.g., commercial standards, military standards, airworthiness processes, and certification practices, etc.) may either be difficult to apply or are just not relevant to AM parts. Thus, new standards and practices need to be developed to facilitate broader and more rapid adoption.

Industry 4.0: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The rapid advancement and increased adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) technologies in industry has      coincided with, and in many instances been enabled by, the application of artificial intelligence (AI) methods, including machine learning (ML). The various steps of the AM process generate massive quantities of diverse, multimodal data. Furthermore, if recorded, the operational performance of a component during its service life generates valuable data. Besides generated data, the AM processes can be controlled by changing and optimizing many parameters using AI and ML. Hence, both data and parameters make AM a great candidate for AI and ML applications to further understand and improve the AM process and product quality, if the data can be structured and registered, and the parameters made clear, consistent, and comparable.

Industry 4.0: Data Management

Additive manufacturing (AM) is uniquely characterized by large amounts of data generated from various steps of the AM process. These steps include design, process planning, building, in-situ monitoring, post-processing, inspection, characterization, and testing, as well as the operating performance of an AM component during its service life. While such data can be used to understand key process variables (KPVs) and support decision-making, the management of the distributed, big data has become a challenge. Methods of AM data annotation, acquisition, transformation, registration, storage, analysis, security, traceability, interpretation, and sharing have yet to be fully explored. Although many companies have developed internal procedures to address the above challenges, the AM community would benefit from standards and best practices that are widely accepted and available to the public, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Industry 4.0: Security

Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology enables extraordinarily complex part designs. Thus, AM processes may require a great deal of information sharing via an organization’s internal distributed manufacturing network and, because AM is amenable to outsourcing and e-commerce business models, over the global internet. As AM equipment becomes more interconnected with other components of Industry 4.0, the risk increases of exposure to a variety of cyber, cyber-physical attacks and even exploitation of this data to produce counterfeit parts. While established cyber- and IT-security solutions are needed, they might not always be adequate to protect the emerging manufacturing environment. Therefore, the security of AM should be addressed holistically. This includes, but is not limited to, identifying cyber-security threats in AM, assessing the risks they pose, and determining how best to manage the risk. By improving AM security, we can strengthen the business case for adopting AM technology. This symposium specifically explores the security aspects of AM in an Industry 4.0 environment.

Value Chain: Design

One of the critical success factors to making the most out of Additive Manufacturing (AM) is to utilize Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) fundamentals and optimization techniques to take advantage of the design freedom that additive manufacturing enables. As AM technology evolves, design and optimization go beyond the traditional user-CAD input. Engineers also need to factor in stress analysis, thermal analysis, process simulation, microstructural evolution modeling, material-process-microstructure-property relationships, and cost estimation to effectively influence the design of AM components. Understanding and applying DfAM fundamentals and current state-of-the-art optimization and AI techniques are critical to creating quality, value-added solutions, accelerating the adoption of AM, and reducing the time and cost of AM implementation.

Value Chain: Environmental and Corrosion

Additive manufacturing (AM) has evolved over the past decade. While research has primarily focused on the evaluation of microstructure characterization and mechanical performance, limited emphasis was placed on environmentally induced degradation modes. Hence, it is critical to understand environmental effects (e.g., corrosion, environmental assisted cracking, etc.) on AM alloys to enable informed use in structural components for engineering applications. Numerous studies demonstrated significant differences in both microstructure and corrosion properties between AM alloys and conventionally processed alloys. It is of significant importance to understand the mechanism of such phenomena and thus be able to model their linkages. It is also reported that post-processing techniques such as heat treatment, surface treatment, or coating may influence the performance of AM alloys against environmental effects. On the characterization side, most studies have utilized legacy standards for corrosion testing. While these legacy standards may be applicable, further considerations may still be required.

Value Chain: Fatigue and Fracture

The rapid adoption of additive manufacturing (AM) across numerous industry sectors with a wide variety of applications requires methodologies for the characterization and mitigation of risk arising from material flaws. For safety-critical applications, it is particularly important to understand how material characteristics and process defects typical to AM (e.g., pores, lack of fusion, surface roughness, etc.) affect component integrity. Understanding these effects is complicated by the lack of historical data, the potential for variability in AM processes, and the rapid evolution of the technology. The qualification, certification, and safe continued use of AM products in fatigue critical applications will depend not only on a basic understanding of damage mechanisms and the associated behavior of typical AM defects, but also on the development of robust, validated models and software for predicting fatigue life and fracture risk. In addition, the applicability of current fatigue and fracture standards needs to be evaluated to identify standardization gaps for generating the necessary supporting materials data.

Value Chain: Feedstock Characterization, Specification and Reuse

Additive manufacturing (AM) feedstocks are available for a broad range of material types and come in various forms (e.g., powder, wire, filament, inks). New offerings are continuously introduced to the market with varied and unique characteristics. In some cases, the impact of feedstock characteristics on the process and part quality are not fully understood quantitatively. Therefore, a proper understanding of AM feedstock characteristics and the quantification of their performance during manufacturing is essential for the production of AM parts with repeatable quality, be it for fresh or reused feedstock materials. New characterization methods, acceptance criteria, and standards need to be developed for the complete and reliable characterization of feedstock materials.

Value Chain: Microstructural and Mechanical Behavior

The unique microstructural features and potential flaws in components fabricated by additive manufacturing (AM) result in key performance metrics and characteristics that may differ from their conventionally manufactured counterparts. These distinctive features include strong textured microstructures, AM specific material flaws, surface irregularities, and more.
To understand the impact of these unique AM microstructural and surface features on the material properties and consequently on parts performance, it is crucial to conduct thorough investigations through physical testing, as well as developing material models to simulate processing and resultant properties. While established testing standards exist for deriving various mechanical properties, it has become evident that conventional procedures may not always be applicable to AM materials due to the unique nature of the fabrication process.

This symposium aims to address the challenges posed by the unconventional thermophysical phenomena, mechanical characteristics and property dependencies observed under different conditions, such as various geometries, process parameters, and post-processing. The topics covered in this symposium will delve into these crucial aspects, providing insights into the complexities associated with the microstructural characteristics of AM materials and their implications on overall material properties and parts performance.

Value Chain: Non-Destructive Evaluation and Inspection

While destructive evaluation methods such as mechanical testing and microstructural characterizations are often used to evaluate the mechanical performance of additively manufactured (AM) materials and parts, non-destructive evaluation (NDE) methods can provide significant insights without the need for sectioning and damaging the part. Since the presence of defects (e.g., pores, lack of fusion, surface roughness, etc.) often influences the mechanical performance of AM parts significantly, understanding the critical characteristics (such as type, size, and distribution) and location of these defects is key to managing performance expectations, and qualification and serviceability.

Value Chain: Sinter-Based AM Technologies

Sinter-Based Additive Manufacturing (SBAM) processes offer improved resolution and surface finish, wider choice of materials, and increased build speed compared to fusion-based AM processes, resulting in lower production costs and enabling new applications. Sinter-based AM processes now include several technologies as defined in ISO/ASTM 52900: Binder Jetting (BJT), Material Extrusion (MEX), Material Jetting (MJT), and Vat Photopolymerization (VPP). There is also the emergence of several new SBAM technologies such as hybrid processes that rely on both additive and subtractive processes, 3D Screen printing, and 3D printing of multi-materials. Unique to these sinter-based processes, the powder feedstock is selectively bound together with a binding agent during the printing process to produce what is commonly referred to as a “green” part. Secondary debinding and sintering steps are then required to remove the binding agent and consolidate the powder material to the desired final part density. While the potential of these new technologies is high, there are still challenges being addressed to achieve the economy and scale these technologies promise and standardization needed to reach a positive inflection point in industry adoption.

Short Certificate Courses

On Sunday, October 27 in Atlanta, GA, before ICAM 2024, three short certificate courses will be held. These courses are led by esteemed members of the AM community and industry experts, focusing on the following subjects.
Note that these courses are not included in the standard registration.

Assigning Part Classifications for AM Parts Based on Consequence of Failure
Sunday, October 27 – 8:00 am – 12:00 pm


About the Course

The use of additive manufacturing (AM) technology allows designs that may not be achieved with traditional manufacturing methods. It is important to understand the risk associated with the AM usage by understanding the consequence of failure (including the loss of intended function) of the usage. Such information can be beneficial in establishing consistent manufacturing, inspection requirements including NDE, or qualification processes relative to a defined risk scale, which can serve as supporting data when seeking regulatory approval of an AM part. A part classification scheme based on a part’s consequence of failure can provide a consistent risk metric. Without carefully defined part classes, the ability to accurately gauge the consequence of failure associated with additively manufactured aviation parts within and across programs, projects, and suppliers becomes exceedingly difficult, resulting in mitigations that are either not commensurate or inconsistent. The part classification scheme documented in F3572 does not affect a part’s functional requirements, but rather is used to group additive manufacturing aviation parts into categories which can be used in downstream standards. This workshop will provide the necessary guidance on the application of F3572 to AM parts used by your organization to help meeting aviation regulatory certification requirements.

Course Level: Intermediate

Learning Outcomes

  • -Get a high-level understanding of the risks associated with AM components
  • -Have considerations about the consequence of part failure
  • -Plan qualification program based on parts classification
  • -Create a scheme for part classification
