Part Remanufacturing using Hybird Manufacturing Processes


Many users of high-performance metal parts, such as the aerospace industry, the mold/die casting industry, and heavy machinery consumers, extend the service of these damaged parts by employing remanufacturing technology. Additive manufacturing has unique capabilities, such as low heat input, a small heat-affected zone, free-form fabrication, and a near-net-shape. This paper summarizes the effort and the tested results to achieve an automated remanufacturing process using hybrid additive manufacturing and CNC machining processes. It will enable the robust remanufacturing-on-demand to significantly increase operational availability to reduce sustainment costs, thus will lead to robust and quality remanufacturing that is critical for remanufacturing process qualification.
