New Paper — Hybrid Ultrasonic Spot Welding of High Strength Materials

The idea that resistance and ultrasonic processes can be combined into an effective joining method has been around for more than 20 years, but has never been commercialized. With the increasing demand for  lightweight materials in planes and vehicles, however, the resistance-and-ultrasonic concept is under reconsideration. Studies now indicate that this hybrid method could be aRead more

New paper: In-Process Monitoring Techniques for Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF)

As metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes become more frequent in manufacturing operations, a key component for acceptance is improved quality control methodologies. The current quality control paradigm does not include the ability to recognize quality throughout the build as it is barely scratching the surface of monitoring capability, let along control. EWI has begun performing research onRead more
