Towards zero-defect AM: a research journey into closed-loop control

  • Ir. Thomas Hafkamp

AM end-users cannot simply press CTRL+P and rely on the 3D printer to produce a part with the same level of reliability that a 2D inkjet printer has to offer. Conventional production machines such as 2D printers obtain their reliability by virtue of closed-loop control systems. This talk will elaborate on the research journey of a PhD researcher working on closed-loop control for photopolymerization-based AM processes such as stereolithography.
