Title (EN) FOIL-BASED ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION ADDITIVE À BASE DE FEUILLES
Abstract:
(EN) An additive manufacturing system, method of manufacturing, and fabricated part. The system uses a material joining laser system to join together foil sheets to form a metal part. The material joining laser system can be configured to join adjacent foil sheets together in a substantially uniform manner. The manufacturing system also includes a material removal system that removes material from selected locations of the foil sheets to shape the foil sheets to correspond with selective slices of the part. The material removal system can be a laser system, such as a laser system configured to remove material from a foil sheet without removing material from an underlying layer. One embodiment involves the manufacture of amorphous alloy components.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de fabrication additive, un procédé de fabrication et une pièce fabriquée. Le système utilise un système à laser d'assemblage de matière pour assembler ensemble des feuilles pour former une pièce métallique. Le système à laser d'assemblage de matière peut être configuré pour assembler ensemble des feuilles adjacentes d'une manière sensiblement uniforme. Le système de fabrication comprend également un système d'enlèvement de matière qui enlève de la matière à partir d'emplacements sélectionnés des feuilles pour façonner les feuilles d'aluminium pour qu'elles correspondent à des tranches sélectives de la pièce. Le dispositif d'enlèvement de matière peut être un système à laser, tel qu'un système à laser configuré pour enlever de la matière à partir d'une feuille sans enlever de la matière à partir d'une couche sous-jacente. Un mode de réalisation implique la fabrication d'éléments en alliage amorphe.
