Abstract

This AM-TKI project in collaboration with TNO focusses on the sensing and control of resin-layer thickness in AM applications. Industrial Additive Manufacturing is considered to be a potential breakthrough production technology for many applications. A specific AM implementation is VAT photo polymerization. In large-area VAT printers, always a layer of non-cured material is deposited, usually a recoating process by a blade coating technique, and a light source is used to selectively cure parts of the layer. One of the main challenge is to obtain a flat resin surface after each recoating step to produce dense and accurate final parts.
