Masters Theses

"Laser Aided Manufacturing Process (LAMP) is a rapid prototyping process used to build three dimensional functional metal and ceramic parts. The process developed in the LAMP laboratory at University of Missouri-Rolla uses a 5-axis fadal CNC machine and a 2.5 KW Nd:YAG (TEM00) Rofin Sinar laser. The laser power and metal/ceramic powder are the input along with auxiliary systems such as shielding gas delivery, RT data acquisition, coolant system. The hybrid process makes use of metal deposition and machining to obtain parts meeting design tolerances.

LAMP is used to improve upon the process of Thermal Barrier ...
