Process monitoring has been instrumental in furthering the understanding of the additive manufacturing process. An overview of process monitoring capabilities is presented as this technology is becoming increasingly critical for reducing cost for quality assurance of AM parts. This is especially helpful for regulated industries like aerospace and medical where the AM process has to go through rigorous machine validation and part qualifications.
- Understand basic process monitoring technologies in the industry today
- Learn capabilities of the process monitoring technologies
- Apprehend the risks involved in qualifying AM parts and impact of these technologies to reduce this risk
