Laser Ultrasound NDT and Acoustic Emission process monitoring

Novel Quality Assurance for metal-AM: Laser Ultrasound NDT and Acoustic Emission process monitoring

To enable a still wider uptake of 3D-printed parts in all industries, perfect Quality Assurance is key. Based on examples from very different fields we will show demo-case applications for two approaches to quality-assurance for metal-AM:

-On one hand we show the Non-Destructive Quality-Control in a completed part, built by L-PBF from TI64: we demonstrate the comparison of X-Ray inspection and Non-Destructive Inspection by Laser-Ultrasound.

-On the other hand we present successful tests to identify anomalies in a CMT-process by application of a high-resolution Acoustic Emission measurement for in-situ process monitoring.

1st call for applications for 6 postdoctoral fellowships is open

ADMIRE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action, hosted by the AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research.

The programme aims to support the next generation of research leaders in Europe in Advanced Materials Science, by facilitating high quality research while providing opportunities for fellows to develop skills and flexibility for an independent career in their field of research, in academia or industry. In our first call, ADMIRE will fund at least 6 high-calibre Postdoctoral Fellowships of 24 months, who will relocate to Ireland to join expert supervisors in one of the 8 academic partners of AMBER. Fellows will have access to the full range of AMBER state of the art facilities and expertise at these locations. ADMIRE Fellowships are for experienced researchers from any country, seeking a prestigious, career-building position in Ireland. Fellowship projects must be affiliated with one of the research themes of AMBER:

  •  Materials for Health,
  • Materials for Energy,
  • Materials for ICT,
  • Engineered Functional Materials
  • Sustainable Materials and Technology

The call documentation is available on the AMBER website and the submission portal is
