Dynamic Loads in Additive Manufacturing
Is Additive Manufacturing ready for dynamic loads❓ #MaterialsMonday
The dynamic load capacity of AM parts is often a problem for highly stressed components. However, with the right parameters and heat treatments, AM materials are on par with conventional manufacturing processes. But the most important thing is to systematically investigate these properties with suitable test specimens.
Our team at Rosswag Engineering recently printed many thin walled fatigue specimens from the quenched and tempered steel 42CrMo4 (AISI4041) for testing on our own oscilating flat bending test system in relation to DIN 50142. A real game changer for new dynamic applications 🚀
