(EN) ADDITIVE MANUFACTURE
(FR) FABRICATION ADDITIVE
Abstract
(EN)
An additive manufacturing system comprising an additive manufacture apparatus having an energy source and a process chamber (2) in which the energy beam is used to selectively solidify powder on a layer-by-layer basis; and at least one powder supply module (1) removably attachable to the additive manufacture apparatus. The powder supply module (1) has a powder supply and a powder dispenser (200). The process chamber (2) of the additive manufacturing apparatus is provided with an opening (2b) extending from the exterior of the apparatus into the chamber (2) and the powder supply module (1) is provided with a complementary connection interface (226) which closes the opening (2b), wherein the powder dispenser (200) delivers powder into the process chamber (2) beyond the connection interface (226).

L'invention concerne un système de fabrication additive comprenant un appareil de fabrication additive ayant une source d'énergie et une chambre de traitement (2) dans laquelle le faisceau d'énergie est utilisé pour solidifier sélectivement de la poudre sur une base couche par couche ; et au moins un module d'alimentation en poudre (1) pouvant être fixé de manière amovible à l'appareil de fabrication additive. Le module d'alimentation en poudre (1) comprend une alimentation en poudre et un distributeur de poudre (200). La chambre de traitement (2) de l'appareil de fabrication additive comporte une ouverture (2b) s'étendant de l'extérieur de l'appareil dans la chambre (2) et le module d'alimentation en poudre (1) est pourvu d'une interface de liaison complémentaire (226) qui ferme l'ouverture (2b), le distributeur de poudre (200) délivrant de la poudre dans la chambre de traitement (2) au-delà de l'interface de liaison (226).
