Title: Additive Manufacturing and Intelligent Processing Control of Advanced Metal Materials
Abstract: As an important branch in the field of 3D printing, metals additive manufacturing, has demonstrated great value and broad application in strategic emerging industries such as aerospace like turbo engines and blades, transportation like bearings, new energy, and medical structures. The research progress has been made through several decades combined with lab research. It has changed the traditional manufacturing methods and provided new ideas for the direct manufacturing of complex metal structures and functional parts, liberating the freedom of designers and making new product forms emerge, which shows very considerable prospects in the fields of innovative product development, biomedicine, and energy.
