In cooperation with IMT
The additive manufacturing (AM) by deposition of polymer at molten state (Fused Deposition Modelling, or FDM) allows the realization of complex plastic parts without requiring the use of tools. As such, it is an original plastic processing technology that makes it possible to move quickly from the idea to the component and thus to accelerate the development time; it therefore arouses an industrial interest for the production of both functional prototypes (design validation) and parts (small custom series). However, to be able to compete with traditional plastic processing techniques such as plastic injection-moulding, it is crucial to have access to reliable digital tools in order to better understand the relationships between the operating parameters of the process (print speeds, printing temperature and control of the manufacturing room, thickness of layers ...), the intrinsic properties of the materials considered (rheological and thermal behaviour, shrinkage, crystallization …), and the quality of the final part. Thus, the numerical simulation of the process represents a meaningful alternative to repeated experiments making it possible to determine the best manufacturing conditions, and constitutes an aid to optimize direct production of high-quality parts.
