|Project Summary||Project Information|
Metal additive manufacturing machines primarily use either wire or powder feedstock. Powdered metal is expensive and wire is hard to source for alloys that are not used in welding. The use of bar stock would be ideal, as most metals are readily available in rod form, but no standard exists for using rodstock in metal AM applications.
The goal of this project is to develop a feeding mechanism which will enable the use of various bar stock materials in metal AM applications, particularly the Vader AM machine in RIT’s Brinkman lab. The design must provide stock material fast enough to avoid slowing the machine down, without overfilling the microcrucible or negatively impacting part quality. The device must also be safe for both operator and machine, and be simple to use. While integration with the Vader is ideal, it is not the primary goal of this project.
