LPW established am researcher of Royal Academy of engineering to study metal alloys
Abstract: the industrialization of metal additive production is providing a large amount of data from the complex metallurgical processes involved in manufacturing components through metal am. Because this technology may overturn the existing metal parts manufacturing technology, so as to collect data and simulate new composition and microstructure, it is necessary to transform the new method of producing new high-performance alloys for key industries

Professor Pedro Rivera was appointed dean of LPW/Royal College of engineering at Lancaster University. Professor Rivera is transferring from the position of research assistant director of SKF University Technology Center at the University of Cambridge. His focus is on complex modeling to produce new alloys. 8. Nondestructive testing instruments (magnetic particle flaw detector, X-ray flaw detector γ Ray flaw detector, ultrasonic flaw detector, eddy current flaw detector, acoustic emission detector, etc.) he appointed the new research chairman of Lancaster University to study new engineering materials, use the power of thermodynamic and dynamic modeling, and combine the concepts of neural network and genetic algorithm to design revolutionary high-performance am specific alloys
"am provides incredible freedom of design to manufacture parts that are not created by established methods such as forging and casting. Conventional alloys used for AM can be very sensitive to parameters such as oxygen content, in which changes are inherent in the AM process. Professor pedrorivera said: "This research will create a truly new type of metal powder by controlling the microstructure and composition of specific alloys that are critical to high-performance am.
by developing statistical models that take into account powder size, composition and atmospheric conditions, as well as the performance of components such as strength, ductility, hardness and corrosion, powerful main interface parameters added to the control software can be developed to achieve industrial scale am.
"When we understand how the composition of metal powder affects the microstructure of end materials, and we can also do experiments such as material contraction and twists, we can start to design and create parts. Imagine high-temperature aerospace parts, with high external hardness and light interior, prosthetic joints providing surface biocompatibility and low-density interior trim, "Dr. philcarroll added.
the industrial partner lpwttechnologyltd is committed to LPW and the research team of Lancaster University to jointly develop new am specific alloys. In order to prove the function of materials, LPW will provide the world-class ampowderlab to comprehensively characterize its gold powder alloys and conduct material tests on its internal metal am machine.
the powdersolveam of LPW will be used after the installation of samples. 4 Materials, testing and construction data range from complex simulations and material analysis to proof of acceptable performance. Finally, through powdersolve, LPW aims to enable companies to use am process data to develop and optimize their own am materials and processes
the ability to collect, simulate, record and analyze data in the whole process of AM construction and the ability to accurately relate to component functions are the basis for applying basic science to practical industrial applications. Powdersolve is the key to controlling these data. This research is expected to increase confidence in the intelligence and control of additive manufacturing and accelerate the high growth of key production environments, including aerospace and medical industries
