The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to the manufacture of metal parts by direct deposition of a group of relatively thin layer which serves as a base substrate, in particular, to such devices that regulate spent in the deposition of layers of power using the parameters generated in the process of formation of the previous layer.

The level of technology

Fabrication of bulk metallic components layer-by-layer welding was first published in 1978 by the authors Breinan and Kear. In U.S. patent No. 4323756, issued in 1982 in the name of Brown, and others, described a method of manufacturing a massive rapid curing and metal products, having a near-net shape, practically used in the manufacture of some components of gas turbine engine, including discs and knife air seal. In accordance with the description of many thin layers of the base material is applied using an energy beam, naplouse each layer on the substrate. Used energy source may be a laser or electron beam. In the practice of the invention, the base material may serve or wire, or powder material and the basic material is applied to the substrate in such a way that it passes through the laser beam Anaplasma on the melted portion of the substrate.

In this way the direct deposition of metal for the manufacture of bulk components, it is advisable to use multi-axis, commercially available devices with numerical control. U.S. patent No. 5837960 relates to a method and apparatus for forming products from bulk materials. The material is melted using a laser beam and precipitated points along the trajectory of the head to form the product of a given shape and size. In a preferred embodiment, the head trajectory and other parameters of the deposition process are defined using the technology of automatic design and manufacture. The controller included in a digital computer that controls the movement of the deposition zone along the trajectory of the head and provides for the issuing control signals to configure device settings, such as the speed at which the deposition head, moving the laser beam and the powder in the zone of deposition, moves along its path.

Most of the existing technologies, however, based on the regulation of open-loop, which requires significant mechanical finishing machining to get the item with sizes lying within the acceptable range. In the manufacturing process requires the constant use of corrective action to bring the items to the set PA is amerov largest tolerance and residual stresses. The device control closed loop in which such problems are solved, as described in U.S. patent No. 6122564. This patent disclosed a device with computer process control direct deposition of metal using a laser, in which successive layers of material applied to the substrate to produce the product or cause the layers of the coating.

Unlike the previous approach, this device is the direct deposition of metal provided with feedback to control the dimensions and overall geometry of the part being manufactured in accordance with the CAD file. The trajectory of the deposition head is produced by a computer system device with a numeric control with the use of additional software precipitation instead of the uninstall program, as in a conventional device with numerical control. Such systems with adjustable feedback can make completely unnecessary intermediate machining and significantly reduce the final mechanical processing.

In U.S. patent No. 6518541 disclosed device direct deposition of metal, which use a laser having a working cycle of the "on-off", and means to regulate the process of using feedback to establish the operating cycle with the necessary parameters. U.S. patent No. 6459951 the relative is conducted to the device direct deposition of metal, uses a control device parameters feedback with the aim of establishing a permanent zone of the melt in the process of deposition of a particular layer.

These devices control feedback can improve the accuracy of each layer in the multilayer process of production, but does not relate to the problem changes from layer to layer, resulting heating of the substrate in the process of direct deposition of metal.

Disclosure of inventions

The present invention relates to multilayer technology sedimentation control feedback and adaptive device for regulating the power of the laser used in the application layer, and regulation based on the parameters read in the formation of the previous layer.

In the deposition process a certain amount of energy emitted by the laser is absorbed by the substrate, which causes the increase of substrate temperature. Repeated application of the layers leads to a gradual increase in the substrate temperature up until the temperature stabilizes at a certain level. At this point the heat loss from the substrate peak, and, therefore, further absorption of laser energy increases the temperature and the size of the zone of the melt. The increase in the size of zone melt a negative impact n the uniformity of deposited layers.

The present invention relates to adaptive device with a closed cycle in which the size or temperature of zone melt read using video, or alternatively using a pyrometer, and read the value sent to the numeric processor, which regulate the laser power for each layer. Algorithm power control operates so as to set the same values or temperature zone at a certain point in each layer, as the value or the temperature at this point in the underlying layers.

In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, this adjustment mechanism of the laser power feedback is not activated when applying the first layer on the substrate, since the conditions of heat transfer and, accordingly, the temperature of zone melt that layer will be significantly different from values for subsequent coating layers. For the second or overlying layer depending on design parameters on the surface layer choose the coordinates of several test points. The number of test points is chosen depending on the area of deposition, the geometry of the part and the processing speed of the algorithm in the Central processor. When applying the second layer or another layer reads and remembers the size or temperature of the AOR is s melt for each control (test) point. This layer may be called "the Gold layer, as the size of the zone or the temperature measured at each control point in the process of applying this layer are considered installation values for the parameters applying to coordinates of corresponding control points for the application of subsequent layers.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention in the process of applying the Gold layer of the image area of the melt obtained using CCD cameras (cameras with charge-coupled), captured in various control points, and the size of the melt for each control point is determined by image analysis. The values stored for each control point, and then categorized into low, medium or high point, in accordance with the difference between the size of the individual zones of the melt. Then create a two-dimensional Matrix of Values for the variables at each control point using the difference between the sizes of the images in the high and low points. Next, without changing the laser power is applied the next layer and the capture zone of the melt at the control points. Calculated a matrix of image sizes for this layer and compared with the matrix for the previous layer to compute the matrix "Layer Weight". Next, this matrix image sizes for the layer is ravnivat with a matrix of image sizes for the Gold Layer and calculate the difference. The difference in size is used with matrix Values and the corresponding weight value is selected from a matrix layer weight for each control point, and form a matrix of correction weights in the control points. Applying this matrix to the power of the laser in the Gold layer, calculate the new value of the laser power for the next layer. This process is repeated for each subsequent layer.

As a result of this process, the size of zone melt to a specific point in the layer is adjusted until the best approximation to the size of the zone at this point for the Gold Layer.

In accordance with the foregoing, it is proposed a method of forming a metal part (area) on a metal substrate by depositing group superimposed on each other layers, which generate laser thermal beam, and served in the laser beam metal powder from a source of powdered metal, and thus carry out the movement of the substrate relative to the beam using a numeric control programmable trajectory and formation of the spreading zone of the melt. In the process of forming the group of metal layers perform reading (definition) zone settings of the melt in the group selected coordinates, memorizing a few options in each of the selected coordinates and the process saved the settings with the definition of the corresponding laser power for overcoating.

In preferred variants of the method when processing the saved settings carry out the comparison matrix read parameters stored in the formation of the last deposited layer, with the matrix a few parameters previously applied layer on the basis of which to determine the appropriate laser power for overcoating. While previously applied layer is a second layer deposited on the substrate.

Read the zone settings of the melt may include the size of the zone and/or optical brightness zone temperature zone of the melt.

In another embodiment, a method of generating heat beam from the energy source, and served in the beam metal powder from a source of powdered metal, and thus carry out the movement of the substrate relative to the beam on the formed part with the creation of the spreading zone of the melt. In the process of forming the group of metal layers perform the reading zone settings of the melt in the group selected coordinates, memorizing a few options in each of the selected coordinates and processing parameters stored with identifying the appropriate laser power for overcoating.

As an energy source can be used in laser or electron beam. In the process of forming each layer level is Amnesty support beam constant.

In yet another embodiment, the method is carried out the deposition of the first layer in contact with the substrate when the first thickness of thermal beam, then carry out the deposition of the second layer on the first layer with the same thickness of the heat ray, and that when applying the first layer, and the reading in the process of forming the specified second layer zone settings of the melt in the group selected coordinates, followed by the deposition of the third layer with the same thickness of the heat ray that when applying the first two layers, and reading in the process of forming the third layer zone settings of the melt in said selected coordinates, and save the settings area of the melt in the process of forming the second and third layers and then use them in determining the appropriate capacity of thermal beam for deposition of subsequent layers.

When the deposition of each successive layer reads the settings area of the melt in the specified group selected coordinates and use them together with the previously saved a few parameters to determine thermal power of the beam for subsequent layers.

Other objectives, advantages and applications will be apparent from the subsequent detailed description of a preferred variant implementation of the invention. In the description referring to the accompanying drawings.

A brief description of h is of Raja

Figure 2 shows a typical item that can be manufactured using the method and device in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 3 - block diagram of the preferred variant of the method in accordance with the present invention.

Figure 4 presents the description of the algorithm used in a preferred embodiment of the invention.

The implementation of the invention

In a preferred embodiment of the invention, schematically represented in figure 1, the device comprises a head 10, consisting of a powerful laser and dispenser, throwing out using a gas jet of metal powder (a process of direct deposition of metal using gas and laser), which form the zone 14 of the melt at the point on the substrate 12. This device similar to the device described in the prior art in U.S. patent 6122564. In a variant, alternative dosing of powder, the laser beam may be wire, and alternatively, the laser beam can be an electron beam. Later used the terms "laser" and "powder" should be considered as including those alternatives.

Polozka 12 moves relative to the part of the head 10 by a programmable trajectory under the control of the controller 16 of the device numeric control (CNC), so the area of the melt describes this trajectory in order on a substrate formed of a metal layer. On the desktop of the device is fixed a pair of CCD cameras 18 and 20 forming the image zone of the melt from two opposite sides. This is necessary in cases when the area of the melt is formed in such a way that blocked the view from one of the cameras.

In alternative versions of the invention, more preferable in comparison with the dimensions of the zone of melt in her image is the determination of the temperature zone of the melt through one or more pyrometers. The size of the melt and temperature are closely related to each other.

Output signals from the cameras 18 and 20 are transferred to the graphics card 22 includes a block 24 software image processing, which executes the procedures described below. The interface driver 26 connects the block 24 software image processing software unit 28 of the numerical control device issuing control signals moving through the controller 16 of the numerical control device and on line 30 sends the control signal power of the laser in the head 10.

Figure 2 shows a typical workpiece, generally designated as 32, which includes which serves as a Foundation metal substrate 34 with a deposited methodology the direct deposition of the metal section 36, formed by a group of layers on the upper surface of the substrate. When applying an initial layer of deposited volume 36 much of the heat of laser energy is spent on heating which serves as a base metal substrate 34. As you continue applying layers the temperature of the substrate reaches a maximum and then an additional laser energy goes into melting the powdered metal in a previously applied area. If each region to apply a constant laser power, the size of the melt will begin to rise as it is heated substrate, which will cause abnormal pattern of deposition of the metal. This invention is intended to compensate for this phenomenon.

In General, the method in accordance with the present invention lies in the choice of the initial laser power based on the conventional empirical approach, and applying at least the first two layers of the section 36. When applying the first layer is no measurement of the size of the zone is not carried out, since the contact of the first layer with the substrate 34 the resulting thermal characteristics different from those obtained by the application of subsequent layers. When applying the second layer (or in the alternative to the higher layers, such as the third layer, depending on the metallurgical properties of the substrate 34) in the process of this drawing will be conducted measurements of RA is a measure of the area of the melt at selected points. These values are stored in the program unit 24 of the image processing. Generally speaking, the measurements of the size of the melt in the same selected coordinates as the formation of subsequent layers, and the results of the measurement zone in a particular layer will be processed according to the stored matrices representing the zone size in the previous layers in order to determine the appropriate laser power for use when applying the next layer. Such adjustment of the laser power from layer to layer in a broad sense is intended to compensate for the effect of heating the substrate in the zone of the melt.

The image area of the melt is the main input for the control system and contains information about the temperature in the zone of the melt. Information about the temperature in the zone of the melt can be obtained from the image zone of the melt, determining the brightness level of the image and an area called "the zone of the melt". By regulating the laser power is regulated by the size of the zone of the melt and, consequently, the temperature zone of the melt, which creates a closed-loop feedback system. The system is self-learning or adaptive through the use of information about previous layer to adjust the laser power during the formation of subsequent layers.

Each selected coordinate of each of the NAS is independent of the layer is treated as a separate Control (Test) Point. At each Control Point, the image size may be different due to the influence of the geometry. The size of the image area of the melt to a point on the flat surface may be different from the size for a point on the inclined surface. In addition, even on a flat surface the size of the image area of the melt for areas with sealed trajectories passing head will be different from the dimensions of the image area of the melt at the endpoints. When implementing adaptive closed-loop system temperature zone of the melt takes into account all the above circumstances, in order to make this system sustainable.

Figure 3 in accordance with the preferred implementation of the invention presents the algorithm of the adaptive closed-loop system temperature zone of the melt. When performing the operation indicated in block 48, the operator enters the initial data. This includes the coordinates of the Control Points on the part. The number of considered Control Points depends on the area of deposition and processing speed of the algorithm by the CPU. On a relatively large flat parts of the coordinates of the Control Points can be spaced far enough from each other, while for the part with the changing contours requires closer placement coordinates.

"MIN" and "MAX", not only what are the coordinates of the start and end Control Points. "INC" is a step between the Test Points. "KCON" - constant regulatory systems related to the values of the matrix. "PWR1" means the initial laser power.

The blocks 52 are related to the initial operations of the first layer after you enter the initial data. This layer is in direct contact with the substrate 34, and for him during the coating process, there is no size measurements. Next, in block 54 should the operation of applying the second layer, and in the process of applying for the coordinates of Control Points is the calculation of the image zone of the melt. This layer is called "the Gold Layer, as the information collected during the formation of this layer is considered as the optimal solution for the corresponding coordinates of Control Points in the subsequent layers. It is believed that the temperature of the substrate during the deposition of the Gold Layer is minimal compared to the temperature of the substrate during the application of subsequent layers. Thus this layer is considered as the best of the applied layer. The image areas of the melt obtained using CCD cameras 18 and 20, is captured at various Control Points, and the size of the melt for each point is determined by image processing software unit 24. The size of the image area of the melt for the Checkpoint of the Gold Layer CPA is valuated with all other points, and Control Points are divided into categories of LOW, MEDIUM or HIGH point in accordance with the difference in specific dimensions. This is performed in the steps shown in the frames 54 and 56. In block 58 is a matrix of VALUES for the first layer or a Gold Layer. The matrix of VALUES is generated for LOW, MEDIUM or HIGH points using the difference between the sizes of the images in the high and low points. Matrix values for the LOW points will have a shorter distribution of values compared to the distribution of the matrix of VALUES of the HIGH points. Simultaneously with the formation of a matrix of VALUES completed the calculations for the initial layer or a Gold Layer. The equations and algorithms used in these and other calculations, shown in figure 4. Then without changing the laser power is applied the next layer and the captured image zone of the melt at the Control Points. As before, the matrix size of the zone of the melt, the matrix size of the image of this layer compared to the matrix size of the image of the previous layer, and the calculated value wl2a using the equations shown in figure 4. This is all shown in blocks 60 and 62 in figure 3. Next, in block 64 matrix size of the image for the layer number two is compared to the matrix size of the image of the Gold Layer and the calculated difference is between them. The difference in size is used with a matrix of VALUES, and the corresponding weight values selected from wl2a for each Test Point, and wt2p are set using the equation for the third step, shown in figure 4. Finally, using the value wt2p for the laser power pwr1 Gold layer, calculates the new value of the laser power. The new value of the laser power is set to the laser generator in the cylinder 10 through the analog communication line. This is illustrated in block 66. The process shown in blocks 60, 62, 64 and 66, is repeated for subsequent layers until then, until you applied the last layer, and the manufacturing end.

Obviously, that can be used in other specific equations to achieve the goal in a broad sense, as outlined in this specification and defined in the attached claims.

You can also see that instead of the temperature measurements, based on the dimensions of the zone of the melt, can be made direct temperature measurement.
