Online Monitoring and Control of Polymer Additive Manufacturing Processes
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a revolutionary technology that fabricates parts layerwise and provides many advantages. This article discusses polymer AM processes such as material extrusion, vat photopolymerization (VPP), powder-bed fusion (PBF), binder jetting (BJ), material jetting (MJ), and sheet lamination (SL). It presents the benefits of online monitoring and process control for polymer AM. It also introduces the respective monitoring devices used, including the models and algorithms designed for polymer AM online monitoring and control.
