C-IAdditive Manufacturing, Surfacing and Thermal Cutting

 Terms of Reference

The Commission focusses on thermal processes as additive manufacturing, surfacing, thermal cutting and allied processes, especially with respect to a better scientific understanding and the practical applications of these processes- Scientific and technical contributions by Commission members give attention to process modelling, mechanical properties of the end-products, production planning and quality assurance, by both on-line and off-line processing. In addition, improvements in additive manufacturing, surfacing and thermal cutting equipment are continuously being reviewed and monitored- Recently, a major emphasis has been on additive manufacturing and laser cutting, especially in relation to the newest developments. Additive manufacturing covers a very broad set of processes and material types and is rapidly becoming an industrialized process in need of documented research and properties development.- The work on additive manufacturing will be made in a very close cooperation with other working units interested in the subject.
