Title
(EN) A DEVICE FOR REMOVING FLAWS IN SITU DURING THE ADDITIVE PRINTING OF METAL PARTS
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ÉLIMINATION DE DÉFAUTS IN SITU LORS DE L'IMPRESSION ADDITIVE DE PIÈCES MÉTALLIQUES
Abstract
(EN)
A device for removing flaws in situ during the additive molding of metal parts forms the subject of the invention. The device comprises: a hopper adapted to contain metal powder; a printing platform, sliding along an axis; a metal powder releasing device, to allow the powder to fall from the hopper onto the printing platform; a doctor blade for distributing the powder onto the printing platform, forming a bed of powder; a laser source and associated laser beam scanning system, for selectively melting the bed of powder; a grinder for removing flawed layers and a monitoring system, configured to detect possible flaws in the layers, wherein said monitoring system is connected to an electronic control unit, configured to activate the aforesaid grinder in order to remove the flaws detected by the monitoring system.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'élimination de défauts in situ pendant le moulage additif de pièces métalliques. Le dispositif comprend : une trémie conçue pour contenir une poudre métallique; une plateforme d'impression, coulissant le long d'un axe; un dispositif de libération de poudre métallique, pour permettre à la poudre de tomber de la trémie sur la plateforme d'impression; une racle pour distribuer la poudre sur la plateforme d'impression, formant un lit de poudre; une source laser et un système de balayage de faisceau laser associé, pour faire fondre sélectivement le lit de poudre; un broyeur pour éliminer les couches fendues et un système de surveillance, conçu pour détecter des défauts possibles dans les couches, ledit système de surveillance étant raccordé à une unité de commande électronique, conçue pour activer ledit broyeur afin d'éliminer les défauts détectés par le système de surveillance.
