Laser Aided Manufacturing Process (LAMP)
"A variety of fully integrated Freeform Fabrication (FFF) systems have been developed, a selected group for research and several for commercialization. The design methodology behind most of them is not documented, standardized, or rational. It is important to understand that the final product from any integrated system is affected not only by the unit manufacturing processes themselves, but also by the extent the individual units are assimilated into an integrated process. Thus, a scheme consisting of eight steps and the salient five elements necessary to create or retrofit an existing system to achieve an Integrated Freeform Manufacturing System (FFMS) is proposed in this thesis. Specifically, mass-change, deformation and consolidation unit manufacturing processes are emphasized, as the priority is focused on rapid prototyping (RP) technologies. To illustrate the proposed scheme, the University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) Laser Aided Manufacturing Process (LAMP) system is presented"--Abstract, page iv.
