Lead Institution: University of Cambridge
Industry Partners: Rolls-Royce and Sintratec AG
Project Team: Phillip Stanley-Marbell (Cambridge), Robert Hewson, (Imperial College London), Daniela Petrelli (Sheffield Hallam University) and Nick Dulake (Sheffield Hallam University)
Project Duration: 8 months (April 2018 – March 2019)
The project is the first to investigate per-layer composition analysis integrated within the SLS build chamber in order to generate per-layer data for each produced part characterising millimetre-scale chemical composition variations. This per-part data can be thought of as a “volumetric chemical composition birth certificate” for each produced part.
