Robotic WAAM for large-scale certified metal parts
A set of optimized metal trusses has been 3D-printed with robotic WAAM based on an end-to-end framework for additive manufacturing by the INTEGRADDE consortium. The optimization-initiated workflow incorporates detailed design and FE verification steps performed prior to additive manufacturing with robotic Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM).
This product-driven engineering approach combines test results, numerical simulation, and process parameters to optimize part design and configuration process. This approach for robotic 3D metal printing of large-scale metal parts offers an intelligent and innovative perspective for the future of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry.
Together with the INTEGRADDE partners, MX3D has developed an innovative production strategy of continuous and integral control of the WAAM process, from product design to final verification, in-line quality assurance for the manufacturing of certified metal parts, and addressing mass customization manufacturing approach.
