EWI Project Engineers Alex Kitt and Kenny Kort recently published an article, Additive Manufacturing is Measuring Up in Buffalo, highlighting the precision measurement capabilities EWI has deployed at Buffalo Manufacturing Works.
Additive manufacturing (AM) is more than one single technology. Rather, it is comprised of multiple complementary technologies that provide manufacturers with an array of choices regarding surface finish, component size, efficiency, and overall quality. Each technology has unique requirements regarding, design, materials, processing, and finishing. The quality of built components is dependent on a variety of factors, many of which can be characterized through available measurement technologies. In Buffalo, EWI’s investment in precision measurement technologies supports the entire AM process chain, from powder characterization of new materials to metrology and surface characterization for final inspection.
