With Additive Manufacturing AM, parts can be manufactured for design instead of being designed for manufacture. This tutorial introduces the two laser based AM processes, Selective Laser Melting SLM and Laser Material Deposition LMD.
Asymmetric Incremental Sheet Forming (AISF) is a relatively new manufacturing process. In AISF, a CNC driven forming tool imposes a localized plastic deformation as it moves along the contour of the desired part. Thus, the final shape is obtained by a sequence of localized plastic deformations. AISF is suitable for small series production of sheet metal… (More)
