MiCLAD as a platform for real-time monitoring and machine learning in laser metal deposition

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

Abstract

The MiCLAD machine designed at the VUB, Belgium, allows for closed-loop controlled laser metal deposition including various in-situ optical based measurement systems. These integrated sensors collect information on deposition geometry and temperature during the building process. Hence, each cubic millimeter of material that is either added or removed is mapped to its digital twin with a millisecond temporal resolution in the machines database. This paper introduces the platform and its capabilities by focusing on the procedure of obtaining the necessary training data for the future application of machine learning algorithms, with the goal of controlling the geometry and temperature history during additive manufacturing.
