Siemens published a great article about 3D-printing as the most successful production technologies during this time. Thereby Precitec’s sensor has an important function. The sensor calculates the exact thickness of each metal layer and measures the optical interference of the planned height of the component with its actual height. This online monitoring solution enables an automated adjustment of the process parameters through a closed-loop control to guarantee the perfect material deposition conditions.
