Rosswag Engineering, Pfinztal, Germany, has installed a new monitoring system based on eddy current sensor technology from AMiquam, Gland, Switzerland, on its SLM 280 dual-laser Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machine.

“With the AMiquam monitoring system, we have the possibility of continuous process monitoring on the fly while recoating. Possible process changes can thus be detected even in a depth up to 0.5 mm,” stated Gregor Graf, Head of Engineering at Rosswag.

AMiquam markets direct Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) part monitoring solutions based on industrially established EC technology widely used in industrial Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) procedures that can be integrated into any existing or new PBF-LB Additive Manufacturing machine.

AMiquam wireless and autonomous products are designed to minimise the installation effort and do not affect machine operation. The installation is performed in collaboration with the machine OEM to facilitate and reduce the costs of the Installation Qualification (IQ) and predictive machine maintenance. Alternatively, service providers can install the system independently to generate compliant data for the Operation and Performance Qualification (OQ-PQ). The product architecture is compatible with future machines enabling online remote and digital part certification.

With the AMiquam monitoring product, service providers comply with the ASTM 3166:20 standard guide concerning the use of Eddy Currents for the in-situ detection of defects (such as porosity, cracking, lack of fusion, inclusions and residual stress, and part dimension) during the Additive Manufacturing process. The solution is therefore both compliant with metal manufacturing industry (ISO 15548) and metal AM standards.
