Title
(EN) POWDER-BASED ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TEMPERATURE CONTROL BY SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATION
(FR) RÉGULATION DE LA TEMPÉRATURE DE POUDRES POUR FABRICATION ADDITIVE PAR MODULATION SPATIALE DE LA LUMIÈRE
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and apparatus are provided for controlling the temperature of powders in a powder-based additive manufacturing system using spatial light modulation. Powder layer temperatures can be measured and selectively controlled using a radiation source comprising a spatial light modulator. The spatial light modulator applies a visible light radiation and/or IR radiation. In addition to controlling the pre-fused temperature of the powder in the image plane, the spatial light modulator can also apply the radiation to fuse the powder.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil qui permettent de réguler la température de poudres dans un système de fabrication additive à base de poudres, en utilisant une modulation spatiale de la lumière. Des températures de couche de poudre peuvent être mesurées et régulées sélectivement à l'aide d'une source de rayonnement comprenant un modulateur spatial de lumière. Le modulateur spatial de lumière applique un rayonnement de lumière visible et/ou un rayonnement infrarouge. Outre la régulation de la température de la poudre avant fusion dans le plan d'image, le modulateur spatial de lumière peut également appliquer le rayonnement pour faire fondre la poudre.
