metal printing is a technology in rapid growth. At DTU Mechanical Engineering,
we have invested in new metal printers and are therefore offering student
projects in this field.
metal printing by many is considered a state-of-the-art technology, it is still
a new addition to the many manufacturing processes we can choose between in our
are many unanswered questions related to 3D metal printing, many of them are
related to how processing parameters influence the microstructure and
metallurgical quality of the printed parts. The term ”Metallurgical Quality”
is, of course, related to the microstructure that forms when we print components,
but it also covers topics like residual stress and cracking due to stresses as
well as formation of porosity, inclusions and oxides that can form during
have today 3D printers available that allow us to wary process parameters and
printing material freely, so that we can study effects of varying process
parameters on the structure and properties of the printed components.
is a very wide area of research and there are many possibilities to create
specific projects of varying length and complexity for students that look for
projects that combine processing and materials science, and who are interested
to work in a field with a high degree of novelty.
