Title:
Rare parts on demand cloning of castings by X-rays and RP 
Abstract:
Producing spare parts on demand is increasingly practical due to recent developments in the field of flexible manufacturing systems. For many existing parts which have no CAD data available, direct replication was not possible. This led to the mismatch between availability and the demand for particularly complex castings of historical cars or aircrafts. To bridge this gap, the Institute for Metal Forming and Casting at the Technische Universität München, Germany, designed a process to reproduce...    »
