This special article collection concerns quality assurance in metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes, such as laser powder bed fusion and laser directed energy deposition. The AM has the advantages of high geometric flexibility, product customization, and short production cycle, attracting significant attention in automobile, aerospace, and other fields. However, the lack of repeatability and reliability of part quality hinders the applications of metal AM for industries. The principal reason is that the current AM operates more as an open-loop manufacturing, lacking in-situ monitoring and process control, and real-time feedback quality regulation. Researches on physical phenomena, in-situ monitoring and control techniques are therefore consequential toward the industrial applications of the AM. The scope of this special issue includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • AM modelling and simulation
  • In-situ monitoring of AM process (e.g. gas flow, powder, melt pool, spatters, defects, geometry)
  • In-situ quality regulation of the part
  • Non-contact and non-destructive detection methodologies for part defects
  • Rapid compression, transmission and processing of in-situ monitoring signal
  • Physics-based, data-driven, physics-informed data-driven approaches for the design of manufacturing process and workflow, and prediction of part properties
  • AI-augmented computer vision and diagnosis systems for enhanced closed-loop control and manufacturing
  • Optimized configurations such as topology optimization for metal AM
  • Autonomous AM machines and robots
  • Novel engineering applications of AM
