The most common metal additive manufacturing technique to produce high precision components, direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), has not been extensively characterized and is known to have disadvantages in surface roughness and overall printing accuracy when compared with traditional manufacturing methods. For these reasons DMLS impinging jet injectors have been studied and analyzed to understand variances in designed versus produced dimension, accuracy of produced components, and spray characteristics of produced injectors.
- Understand dimensional tolerancing for high precision orifices
- Determine spray characteristics for DMLS impinging injectors
- Gain a holistic overview of designing, developing, and testing DMLS impinging injectors
