    ABSTRACT: Welding distortions are experienced during the manufacture of boiler components using welding processes. Header is one of the significant boiler components currently fabricated using shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) process. Header is fabricated by welding tubes called nipple with thick-walled pipe called header using SMAW multipass circumferential fillet welding with T-joint orientation. The transient out-of-plane distortion of nipple experienced during welding with header is investigated in this paper. The analysis is carried out using the transient displacement and thermal cycle data obtained for two weld sequences.

    ABSTRACT: Microstructure evolution has been investigated for magnetic pulse welding of dissimilar aluminium and magnesium alloys using optical microscopy, laser confocal microscopy and electron backscatter diffraction. The welded joints were made with discharge voltages of 4 kV, 4.5 kV and 5 kV and they are characterised by the aluminium region, the weld interface and the magnesium region. The interfacial waves become more regular and much smoother with increasing discharge voltage from 4 kV to 5 kV. The grains were extremely refined and the grain size became larger with increasing distance to the weld interface at a discharge voltage of 5 kV. The gradual grain refinement closer to the weld interface can be attributed to dynamic recrystallization. Different recrystallization behaviour was observed for the aluminium region and the magnesium region near the weld interface. The occurrence of the extension twinning { } in the dynamic recrystallized grains indicating twin related dynamic recrystallization behaviour in the magnesium region near the weld interface.

    ABSTRACT: Sustainability in manufacturing processes needs to be increased. Bio-inspired design is one promising and innovative approach to design better products and processes. Therefore, this study uses bio-inspired design to find new process setups for novel grinding system components to address problems defined through an axiomatic grinding model. This paper discusses bio-inspired ideas for chip transport and tool cleaning, abrasive wear resistance, self-sharpening, breaking air barriers, cooling, and new process environments. Case studies and new concepts highlight potential improvements, but future research needs to validate these ideas. This study shows how nature can inspire improvements in grinding processes.

    ABSTRACT: The microstructure, microhardness and corrosion behavior in five zones from the weld metal to base metal of a 2205 duplex stainless steel joint, which was welded by double-pass tungsten inert gas arc welding with filler wire, were investigated systematically. Results indicated that a great deal of secondary austenite appeared in weld metal due to the reheat of second pass welding and coarse ferrite grains were formed near the fusion line, while other zones had the similar microstructures with a different austenite content. It also revealed the microhardness was determined by the partitioning of alloying elements (Cr, Mo, Ni and N) and precipitates such as chromium nitride. Austenite was harder than ferrite from weld metal to fusion line, while it reversed from fusion line to base metal. Electrochemical measurement indicated the zone containing fusion line was the easiest to suffer pitting attack, followed by weld metal zone. Moreover, the surface morphologies were in good agreement with the electrochemical measurements.

    ABSTRACT: Turning of hardened steels with interrupted surfaces presents some restrictions, due to the fact that the tools usually used have little resistance against the typical loads of interrupted cutting. In order to reduce tool wear, an appropriate combination of tool material and cutting edge preparation must be chosen. With the goal of finding a proper edge geometry, the paper investigates the influence of customized cutting edge geometries on tool wear performance of CBN tools in interrupted hard turning. Regarding tool flank wear, results showed that a single chamfered cutting edge is the most appropriate, since it reinforces the cutting edge without excessively increasing mechanical and thermal loads. The main wear mechanism observed for all micro geometries corresponds to attrition.

    ABSTRACT: In order to model the effects of processing parameters (primary gas flow rate, stand-off distance, powder flow rate, and arc current) on the plasma spraying coating properties (thickness, porosity and micro-hardness), adaptive neural fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) and neural network (NN) based empirical models were proposed to estimate process parameters and understand the spraying process. To overcome the difficulty of the small size of sample data, and to balance the trade-off between model complexity and prediction accuracy, the bootstrap method was applied for the resampling technique, and cross validation was applied for the performance evaluation. The ANFIS and NN models were compared on the performance metrics of (1) mean square error (MSE), and (2) determination coefficient (R2). With the limited size of experiment data, both models illustrated high accuracy. In the training stage: on the R2, ANFIS has the value of 1, and NN has the minimum value of 0.84; on the MSE, ANFIS has the minimum value of 1.3e−5, and NN has the minimum value of 0.32. In the validation stage: on the R2, ANFIS has the minimum mean value of 0.42, and NN has the minimum mean value of 0.512; on the MSE, ANFIS has the minimum mean value of 23.67, and NN has the minimum mean value of 89.50. The comparisons illustrated that ANFIS model showed significant superiority over the NN model. This may be due to the fact that ANFIS combines the strength of NN's learning capability and fuzzy logic's knowledge interpretation ability. With the obtained ANFIS model, the physical mechanisms – including (1) melting states of particles, (2) loading effect, and (3) oxidation – were interpreted as processing parameters’ effects on the coating properties. The empirical models and that physical mechanism are viable to be effectively integrated with feedback control strategy to regulate the coating quality in plasma spraying process.

    ABSTRACT: A peripheral adhesive grinding process has been developed to strip hardened adhesive from a gripper after work-piece de-bonding. The objective of this investigation was to gain insight into how changes in feed, depth of cut, and grinding speed affect the specific grinding energy of the process during the roughing phase. A variety of experiments were carried out on a simplified, surface grinding analog in which grinding forces, grinding wheel temperature, and grinding zone temperature were measured.

    ABSTRACT: Spark Assisted Chemical Engraving (SACE) is one among several technologies used to micro-drill glass. So far, two strategies are used in SACE: gravity-feed and constant velocity-feed drilling. Contrary to gravity-feed, constant velocity-feed drilling is less studied. The last presents several advantages from the technological point of view, the major one being that machining can be conducted with no contact between the tool and the glass work-piece if a gap between both surfaces can be maintained. In this paper a methodology to measure the gap between the tool and work-piece is presented.

    ABSTRACT: This paper concerns the forming of a short, thin-walled steel tube by means of an innovative incremental forming process close to spinning. Material characterization necessary for model calibration was carried out through tensile tests at different angles with respect to the rolling direction and simple shear tests. These data were used to identify material parameters of suitable behavior law taking into account the Baushinger effect but neglecting anisotropy. Thus, two different models were built in order to virtually reproduce the forming process. The obtained results are compared amongst themselves but also with experimental data coming from an industrial partner. It has been highlighted that the multidimensional model gives a good representation of the forming process both in terms of part geometry and applied load on tooling. The two-dimensional model is advantageous to predict qualitatively only part geometry with short CPU time. Special attention is paid to springback that occurs as a function of the studied part geometry.

    ABSTRACT: Nitinol (NiTi) alloys are widely used in laser cutting of cardiovascular stents due to excellent biomechanical properties. However, laser cutting induces thermal damage, such as heat affected zone (HAZ), micro-cracks, and tensile residual stress, which detrimentally affect product performance. The key process features such as temperature distribution, stress development, and HAZ formation are difficult to measure experimentally due to the highly transient nature. In this study, a design-of-experiment (DOE) based 3-dimensional (3D) finite element simulation was developed to shed light on process mechanisms of laser cutting NiTi. The effects of cutting speed, peak pulse power, and pulse width on kerf width, temperature, stress, and HAZ were investigated. A DFLUX user subroutine was developed to model a moving volumetric (3D) heat flux of a pulsed laser. Also, a material user subroutine was used that incorporated superelasticity and shape memory of NiTi.

    ABSTRACT: Laser impact welding (LIW) is a solid-state, collision-based welding process. Applications may include joining of dissimilar metals for small-scale parts such as those used in medical devices and microelectronics. The current work focuses on the development of the LIW process for industrial applications with commercial available materials. In this technique, a pulse of high power laser light was converted to kinetic energy through the ablation of a coating on the flyer surface. A transparent confining window directed the force of the expanding gas to launch a flyer toward a target plate. A suitable laser system with diagnostics is described. An experimental study of parameters affecting ablation pressure was conducted via an analysis of flyer deformation and launch velocity. A laminated multi-launch package with a CNC-based motion control welding apparatus was constructed with informed selection of components to optimize conversion efficiency. This joining system is used to demonstrate the LIW joining of aluminum and titanium.

    ABSTRACT: Electroless metallization of ABS parts has been studied on flat part surface. These parts are fabricated on fused deposition modelling machine using ABS (acrylonitrile–butadiene–styrene) as part material. Copper deposition on ABS parts using two different surface conditioning processes namely ABS parts prepared using chromic acid for etching and ABS parts prepared using solution mixture of sulphuric acid and hydrogen peroxide (H2SO4/H2O2) for etching has been performed. After surface preparation using these routes, Cu (copper) is deposited by electroless method using four different acidic baths. The acidic baths used are 5 wt% CuSO4 (copper sulphate) with 15 wt% of individual HF (hydrofluoric acid), H2SO4 (sulphuric acid), H3PO4 (phosphoric acid) and CH3COOH (acetic acid) acids. Cu deposition under different acidic baths for different routes is presented and compared based on their electrical performance, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS). The result shows that chromic acid etched samples shows better electrical performance and Cu deposition in all acidic baths in comparison to sample etched via H2SO4/H2O2.

    ABSTRACT: Single point diamond turning (SPDT) is coupled with the micro-laser assisted machining (μ-LAM) technique to machine silicon (111). The μ-LAM system is used to preferentially heat and thermally soften the work piece material in contact with a diamond cutting tool. Cutting fluid, odorless mineral spirits (OMS), is used to decrease tool wear and improve the surface quality. An IR continuous wave (CW) fiber laser, wavelength of 1070 nm and max power of 100 W with a minimum beam diameter of 10 μm, is used in this investigation. Various machining parameters such as laser power, cross feed rate and tool rake angle were experimented and the resultant surface finish was analyzed. Results show that an optical quality surface finish can be obtained using the μ-LAM technique.

    ABSTRACT: This work attempts to investigate the influence of different single component oxide fluxes in the activated TIG welding of reduced activation ferritic/martensitic (RAFM) steel. Six different fluxes Al2O3, Co3O4, CuO, HgO, MoO3, and NiO were used for bead-on-plate welding, carried out under same conditions and process parameters. The weld dimensions such as depth of penetration (DOP), depth/width (D/w) ratio, Bead width (BW) and Heat affected zone (HAZ) width were studied and compared in addition to the peak welding temperatures. Experimental results indicated that enhanced penetration was achieved with use of fluxes Co3O4, CuO, HgO and MoO3. Further investigation of weld dimensions and the peak temperature values indicated that the reversed marangoni effect was present with the use of these fluxes. However, fluxes Co3O4 and CuO gave through penetration (greater than plate thickness) under the additional effect of arc constriction. Thus a dual mechanism effect is proposed in this study with the use of these two fluxes. Furthermore, the metallurgical characterization of the weldment produced with Co3O4 and CuO fluxes were evaluated using optical microscopy and Vickers micro-hardness and compared with TIG welded sample. The resultant microstructures and hardness profile indicated presence of coarser and harder martensitic structure in the weld and HAZ regions.

    ABSTRACT: As additive manufacturing (AM) evolves from Rapid Prototyping (RP) to the end-of-use product manufacturing process, manufacturing constraints have been largely alleviated and design freedom for part consolidation is extremely broadened. AM enabled part consolidation method promises a more effective way to achieve part count reduction and the ease of assembly compared with traditional Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) method. However, how to achieve AM enabled part consolidation is not well developed. In this paper, a new part consolidation method comprehensively considering function integration and structure optimization is proposed. This presented method is characterized by two main modules. The first one is to achieve better functionality through surface-level function integration and sequential part-level function integration based on design specifications with an initial CAD model which is designed for conventional manufacturing process. The other module is to realize better performance through the introduction and optimization of heterogeneous lattice structures according to performance requirements. The proposed part consolidation method highlights itself from the perspective of functionality achievement and performance improvement. An example of a triple clamp is studied to verify the effectiveness of the proposed model. The optimized results show that the part count has been reduced from 19 to 7 with a less weight by 20% and demonstrates better performance
