  • Optimum Laser Polishing Decision-Making for On-Demand Additive Manufacturing of Spare Parts: An Exploratory Study 

    Additive manufacturing is increasingly being used for satisfying spare parts needs of capital products using a nearby 3D printer. Such a technology allows inventory managers to start manufacturing after the demand realization which eliminates significant portion of spare parts inventory being held due to random nature of component breakdowns. Quality difference between printed and original parts, which is one of the biggest problems of using 3D printers, can be decreased by the use of laser polishing ...

    When tool wears during machining, cost of the process increases. Rapid tool wear leads to even further contributions to process cost and hence must be taken well care of. Among the many forms of tool wear, notch wear is one that has a big effect on the tool change decision. When the tool contacts the workpiece, a high amount of impact is created where depth of cut is. With continuous machining operations such as turning, the impact may not be as important; however, with interrupted machining ...
