Manufacturing In 2030: Let's Talk About AI

December 7-8, 2022 | USA (United States of America)

Manufacturing in  2030 conference
Artificial intelligence has been heralded as a game-changer for every facet of manufacturing from the production floor to the back office. Some of the possible benefits include better efficiency, improved quality, less downtime, and the potential to develop new products with faster time to market. But what do manufacturers need to consider to get the most out of AI, and what are some of the ramifications – good, bad, and otherwise – that can come from deploying it?

One important application of metal additive manufacturing in the aerospace industry involves not making new parts, but repairing existing ones. Aircraft engine blades such as compressor and turbine blades are subject to wear. Historically these components have been repaired manually, through the work of a skilled welder, but 3D printing via directed energy deposition (DED), guided by optical measurement of the worn blade for generating custom program paths, offers the chance for an automated, unattended system to perform this repair operation. During a visit to Optomec's facility in Clover, South Carolina, I saw how additive manufacturing for aircraft engine blade repair works. This video shows DED of Inconel 625 applied in two different types of paths to repair the tips of a compressor blade and a turbine blade.
